Author Don Beukes – The Sign


It does not need words

the sign

symbols are all

that’s needed

the sign

no words need

to be spoken

a bond unbroken

souls connected

both protected

the sign

your own design

the sign

it speaks

it dreams

it sees

there forever –

The sign.

Mr. Don Beukes is a retired teacher of English and Geography. Originally from Cape Town in South Africa, he grew up in the shadow of Table Mountain, always aspiring to achieve the best in life, despite living in a racially divided country. He lives by his favorite motto ‘Carpe Diem’ and endeavors to seize every opportunity in life to make the most of each day. This also filters through to his poetry, attempting to adjust our moral compass in our ever-changing global village. He enjoys gardening and is a keen amateur photographer.
