I write what I feel…

The Newborn Sun



I watch the newborn sun

As it slowly makes its way higher

Until it peeks over the horizon

And sees me watching it.

The warmth of its golden rays

Touches me gently, brushes me softly,

Caresses my naked body as I stand,

Arms extended, reaching upward

With open hands

In gratitude

For all.

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
