I write what I feel…

A Glass of Wine



I will free my feelings

with a glass of wine


Unwrap and disentangle

the knot of twine


For years they’ve been

under tight control


Now I’ll release them

to heal my soul


To make it whole

to rock ‘n roll

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. When I think of rock ‘n’ roll and wine….Boone’s farm Strawberry Hill or maybe Apple come to mind. But Ripple was the cheapest and the most often consumed back in the day…Oh, the hangovers!!Thanks for the ‘Trip’ down memory lane, Denise.


  2. You may as well go the whole bottle 😉 Cool poem – love the image of the twine, and the ending is great.


    • Hmmm, you may be right, Gabe. 😕 I love the word ‘twine’ – to me it sounds just like it is, haha. Wind the twine around… Thanks, so much.


  3. All that tension … gone with the wine.


  4. Wine does not do anything for me..but give me a good sherry and then I am anybodies (with reason)


  5. “Unwrap and disentangle

    the knot of twine”

    “I see ten thousand knots, but only one piece of string.”


  6. Denise, I think I’m going to print this one and put it next to my current box of South African wine. 🙂 It will make me smile even bigger when I have some.


  7. Rock on, Denise! 😉


  8. rock n roll is always a fall back of mine, wine i once did but not really anymore but did like reisling…coffee just as well lets me let my hair down…


  9. Love your “T’wine, or knot t’wine, that is the question?” comment, Adee, haha Nothing wrong with unwinding with a glass of wine (accompanied by some loudly played rock ‘n roll) – I hope you’re rocking and rolling soon – do you swim as part of your physical therapy?


    • Thanks, Bb! No one has mentioned swimming to me yet, but I have been thinking that maybe in the new year when I go back to the doc for a checkup I will ask. I know we are going extremely slowly with progress as the bone was not strong yet.


  10. Simple yet true 🙂
