The Painting

The Painting

The morning sun
Reaches out
And gently touches
The turquoise waters of the lake.

Tiny wavelets
Lap softly
And a lone bird struts
Stiff-legged at the water’s edge.

Distant mountains,
Coloured blue,
March in single file
To fade from sight on the horizon.

A still-life picture,
Drawn with care,
Painted in finest detail
By the Artist’s loving hand.

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!

    • Thanks, John.

      Yes it has, indeed. Unfortunately it is more uncomfortable than I had anticipated, but I am hoping that the physiotherapist will be able to adjust it today…
