Silver Spangled Dress

Silver Spangled Dress

I dream of dancing
In a silver spangled dress,
The moonlight reflecting,
Holding me in its caress.

I dream of dancing
With the sunlight in my hair,
Splashing in the waves
Without a single care.

Running on the beach
With sand between my toes,
Living in the moment –
Alive, despite my woes.

‘Pride comes before a fall’,
But the fall got in my way;
One can seldom have it all –
Perhaps another day…

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

  1. Beautiful, tragic last stanza. How are you getting on, recovering?


  2. “living in the moment” is such the wise way to go. But I have never been able to unshackle myself completely from my past as well as not be tormented by an uncertain future.


  3. Makes me wish I could go on holiday!


    • Ah yes! Btw, Mike, I didn’t get your email. I have a new email address now, and it probably got lost in the change over. Hope you are keeping well.


  4. Glad you’re recuperating . . . loved the poem. Here’s to barefoot and carefree days ahead, Adee.


  5. It takes time to heal, doesn’t it? It will get better every day!
