I write what I feel…

Migration – Haiku




Driven by instinct

They obey their inner urge

With a one track mind

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

  9. Oh yeah. One track mind, for sure. Very apt!


  10. Most of the migration here is birds, and the season is approaching.


    • In the days when we had overhead telephone lines, we would see the birds congregating in rows on the wires getting ready to fly off for the winter.
