I write what I feel…




pleasant memories
of times past
caught on the breeze…
talcum powder
sweet milk
babies’ breath
mother’s faint perfume
dad’s aftershave
close friends
waiting in the light
watching this life
play out

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
