Adeeyoyo's Blog

I write what I feel…




Dancing in the warm sunlight
Along the roadside verge
A profusion of flowers –
Blooms of bright delight!

Shades of purple, pink and plum
Interspersed with white
An abundance of blossoms –
What a cheerful sight!

God’s gift to those of us who see
The beauty all around,
A display of perfect splendour
Carpeting the ground!

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

  4. I adore Cosmos…. While I was waiting for my mum at the Oncology Division I would look at the same magnificent photograph every day to calm me down and put me at peace with the world. A stunning picture of this extraordinary flowers blowing in the wind… *sigh* An unasuming little flower that impacts quite a punch.


    • They are really stunning, Lynda. I bought a packet of seeds and scattered them in the garden about 5 years ago and they have always given me a wonderful display and I have a huge bottle of seeds collected from them which I use to fill in the spaces every year.
