KIERA’S LAST POEM
I sense the touch of cosmic wings
And hear these words, an angel sings…
“We are calling,
Calling you home “….
I am falling, falling
But not alone.
An Angel waits now by my side
Smiling too, she is my guide
I seem to awaken
Then gently taken….
Then up and away we fly
Passed the stars
Beyond the sky
Round the moon
Then through the sun
And there I see
The Holy One..
But I’m a dog
This can’t be?
I had to gasp
I was surprised….
“ALL ARE EQUAL
WHO HAVE DIED
COME TO ME
MY DEAREST ONE
YOUR JOB ON EARTH
HAS BEEN WELL DONE”.
……Gently, drifting bathed in light
……Warm and cosy so ‘Good Night’.

Even more great pictures of lion, buffalo and elephant in Addo on 26 February 2023
Photographer: A Hannington Nikon P900
Note the warthog kill to the right of some of the pictures of the lions. Notice the buffalo herd guarding the young buffalo (young buffalo with gold/brown coat and short horns). And what about the young elephant reaching for the water. Then, shiver when you look at the buffalo bull? Scary close.
Going to Addo is a great experience. How lucky we are to have Addo so close to Port Elizabeth
