oak tree in Sophiatown, Johannesburg

the old oak’s roots –

reach from past to future

recall last year                                 (c) Björn Rudberg

concrete path cracked, then

widened – girl uprooted                       (c) Petru Viljoen

The photo [credit to (Photo: Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries)], was taken in a suburb called Sophiatown in Johannesburg, South Africa. It has enormous historical value as it was one of the black suburbs where forced removals by the then white, apartheid government took place. Visit Kristjaan Panneman’s site to read the other tan renga’s, or of course, to take part in the challenge. This one hosted or inspired by Bjorn Rudberg.
