Botswana Experiences
Dust, Light and Shadows

© Elephants of Savuti. Botswana

Light, in its various forms, turns a moment from the [ordinary] to the spectacular. Every moment in the wilderness is spectacular. You only have to look a little deeper at times.

Shadows are happening moments but are often the scene for moments that are suspended in time.

Camouflage is the blending of the colour with the surroundings...

...but it can also be a blend with the light and shadows.

To tell the time by the sounds of the wilderness is to almost understand where we have come from - but we are still human.

Dust - Celebration of a Season

Dust - is a harvest of a season

A prelude, a post-script

Dust is a time

And a season in itself

Dust is a moment in a passing drama

An image of life

A signature of death


Dust is born in a moment

The making

And the showing of a passing

Of the moment

Dust is a Gathering

Dust is borne on the breeze

A breath of the wilderness

Dust is a curse in wanting

A blessing in understanding


Dust is of the earth

And the colouring of the sky

The painting of the sun

Dust is of the orchestra of light

Morning through evening to night


Dust is the scent that prevails

In the rage of a storm

Dust is the scent of renewal

And, finally, dust is an epilogue
