I write what I feel…

Healing Sunlight – A Haiku


Park in Summer Pictures, Images and Photos

Healing Sunlight
A Haiku

He sat on a bench
In the hot summer sunlight,
His old bones aching,

Soaking up the warmth,
Feeling its healing power
Easing his stiff joints.

He felt for his cane
Then, finding it, stood up and
Tap-tapped his way home.

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
