I write what I feel…

Meditating in the Moonlight

.

It had been a dreek day

Cheerless and dreary

My mind was languid

My body was weary

.

I raised my face to the moon

Closed my burning eyes

Let her healing light

Gently restore my sight

.

I allowed my tired soul

Entry into eternity

For minutes or hours

It was the same to me

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!
