I write what I feel…

Slow Death of Summer


Autumn Leaves Pictures, Images and Photos

Slow Death of Summer

The wind whispers in the trees,
Softly sighing.
Weeping leaves rain down to the ground
And the carpet of grass lies
Drying, dying to golden brown.

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

    • When I lived in KwaZulu-Natal on the east coast it was like that too, Nancy, but I am really enjoying having seasons defined not only by the weather but by nature as well.
