Let our Love

Let our love for you, O Lord,

Fill our thoughts to overflow,

Echo through both time and space –

A missive from the human race.

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

  4. There is something in the air around this time of year, isn’t there Denise? When we feel a little bit closer to God. Or at least we should.. Beautiful poem, concise, yet so poignant. Oh, and Muthua’s photo,,,,,,eye catching colors, to say the least. He does have a “gift” of his vision, and captures it in his photos, to share with us. Thanks to you both.

    • Thank you so much, Jack. It is true that we do feel closer to
      God – or at least I do! You should read some of Muthua’s writings when you visit his blog… also wonderful!

  6. The image is such a lovely prompt that it feels as if somebody hugs you through the cold night to deliver you at the door of dawn to have a glimpse of the hand that sheltered you throgh the night.
    a lovely poem Denise. Sometimes, you cry in pleasure.
