I write what I feel…




Colours painted in the sky,
Beauty in the air revealed
God’s promise to both you and me
Man’s separation has been healed.

Blue sky above, blue sky beneath,
And ‘twixt the two a verdant green
Of grassy hills and leafy trees,
A calm, serene and pastoral scene.

The unspoiled beauty of nature
Is fast becoming a stranger
To city children who live and play
In concrete boxes stacked up high.

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. Sadly true adee.


  2. sadly true but i love being out in her and take the kids i work with often. its funny at times to see their responses to things they have never seen that are right in their back yard…


    • It’s wonderful that you can do that, Brian. Children need to have things pointed out and explained to them and all too often parents are too preoccupied to do it. 😀


  3. beautiful piece,
    some lovely thoughts about kids revealed here…

    kids are immature,
    even grownups need to learn through their life time….
    remarkable poem!
    thanks for sharing.


  4. Lovely!
    Gorgeous pic you chose, too.


  5. Lovely Adee, and sadly true that so many children don’t get to experience nature.


    • Thanks Halfy for your comment. Actually it’s shocking that, despite our planet being more advanced than ever, children are poorer in many ways. I loved your post on ‘false start’. 😛


  6. Stunning pic….and a sad but true story in your words……take care now…
