- Judges’s comments on Time like Stone, winner of the Ingrid Jonker Award, 2001:
“In the exquisite yet simple construction of his poetic statements, Moolman’s work reads like a personal dialogue with the universe. The reader is invited into the poet’s reflections.
The reader can imagine the poet’s life, a gradual journey, at times all amazement through the world. One reads these poems and returns to individual pieces with delight. Because they don’t make strenuous demands on one’s attention.
Looking at things the senses come into play. The reader observes rustic characters, the earth, atmosphere, heavenly bodies and the sky, the colours of the day and night.
Kobus Moolman’s poetry reads like a quiet journey of discovery that is in actual fact inquiries about and amazement at small areas of mental landscape.” – Joan Hambidge and Peter Clarke
