I write what I feel…

Shades and Shadows



 In the blackest black of night

Sea and sky are joined as one

With no horizon, no decisive line

Of separation.


So if, in life, we cross into the night,

Stray beyond the edge of light,

And, excepting we atone, we remain

Sullied by sin.

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. That one has me thinking…


  2. I’ve been meaning to say, I like your new look.


  3. So many consider themselves “saved” by a ritual or event. It is not an event, it is a process and it is conditional on atonement and a recommitment to live “in Christ”


  4. Thanks, Carl, I agree with you.


  5. It’s a beautiful poem by the way…
    Love you
    God Bless You


  6. No, I wouldn’t call it clumsy in any way…just agreeing with you and Carl. It’s a beautiful poem though.


  7. Thanks Paul… love you too.


  8. Not clumsy at all!


  9. a straight forward theological statement…it is the prodigal story…of course this type love and acceptance is seldom truly seen this side of eternity


  10. In the blackest black of night, sunrise is just around the corner, Denise!
    Thanks for the glimpse.


  11. 🙂 Excellent


  12. This one could lead to great debate –
    As can be seen, already has been!
