I write what I feel…




Nightmare in the morning,
Children’s voices crying,
Adult voices calling…

Thick dusty fog,
Glimpses swept away
By the waves of smog…

The earth has shaken,
Nothing is the same,
Buildings have fallen…

Footsteps running
This way and that,
Terror and scurrying…

Angels of mercy
Arrive at the scene;
Rescue work begins…

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
