I write what I feel…

Light and Shade


Light and Shade

The sunlight played
In the dappled shade
Of the maple tree.
Patches of light
Danced to the tune
Of the mischievous breeze.

The leaves floated down
To lie on the ground
And the tree was bare.
Bereft it remained
In the receding shade
Until the spring returned.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. Pretty, you’ve allowed a positive resolution at the end, so that Winter is not seen as being brutal.


  2. I really like that…how do you guys do it?


  3. This makes me mad… I try poetry and it comes out funny – you do it and it comes out profound…. 🙂


  4. Lovely contrasts, Adee 🙂
