Horse and rider pause
Study the horizon’s undulating haze.
What they see there, or hear
Only they can know.

Perhaps a fragment of sound,
Foreign to the veld
Or movement where none should be.

Or perhaps some other thing
Some intuitive response to an inner feeling
Of disquiet.
A gnawing sense that all is not quite well
In the bush around them.

Soon they will move on
His heels edging the tall grey forward
Through the ghosts of grey Mopani trees
Into another evening of uncertainty.
