I write what I feel…




Cool, clear liquid
On my hot, dry throat,
Refreshing, rejuvenating,
Quenching my thirst.

Cool, clear liquid
On my burning eyes,
Appeasing and easing,
Healing my sight.

Cool, clear liquid
On my blistering skin,
Soothing, comforting,
And calming my soul.

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. Roll on summer Adee, so I can appreciate cool water running over hot, parched skin again! Right now, I’m heading off to have steaming hot water running over my ice cold body 🙂


  2. I could feel it, taste it.


  3. Brrrrrrrrr…now I feel colder than ever!
