I write what I feel…

Other Worldly



On the cusp of sleep

Thoughts, imagination, inspiration

Wander up hill and down dale.

Recollections… introspections… meditations…


Material obsessions:

Baubles bright in the sunlight,

Earthly jewels, possessions,

Worth nought in the afterlife.


Treasures of the soul:

Love, joy, contentment,

Life-energy spiritually whole,

Surrendered to His control.

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

    There is a last, omitted verse


    Thank you


  3. Great reminder.
    Yet we fill our bags with that which we do not need, ignoring that which we do…what a surprise journey’s end holds.
    Peace, Eric


  4. Treasures of the soul … Surrendered to his control … oh yes, gladly.

    Blessings – Maxi


  5. This intimate kaleidoscope
    just He and you can share
    when you relinquish the reins

    where you lie there suspended
    betwixt heavenly
    and earthly planes


  6. Beautiful poem, Denise. ‘Sleep is such sweet surrender’,, to paraphrase..


  7. smiles…nice wisdom into what really matters in this world and beyond…


  8. The cusp is a great pave to be. The reason we do anything adventurous. Too bad it is so short so must inhale every bit of it and never exhale.


  9. Moments of calm before sleep


  10. Good thunks, Denise!


  11. “On the cusp of sleep” When the heart and mind are open to exlpore. Very nice.


  12. We sometimes lay awake thinking about these things we have no control over.
