I write what I feel…




Becalmed on a silver sea

an ocean of slow motion

after a tropical storm

feelings have flown

hither and thither blown

littered, scattered

across the ocean

in a cyclone of emotion

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. Just bask in the afterglow I say…want a smoke?

    Love ya girl…


  2. Love you too, you are such a mindreader, Paul! A cig would be so welcome, but I stopped three or four years ago… still miss them tho’! Bless you, my friend.


  3. Makin’ up is so much fun… Kudos on the cigs; gave them up twelve yrs. ago.

    Blessings – Maxi


  4. Relax and read or write about the wonders of navigation till the wind gets up again.


  5. Beautiful calm: I like an ocean of slow motion. I have to admit, though, I love watching it when it’s all riled up too… 😀


  6. smiles…nice flow through your words…catching hte rhythm left after the storm of emotion…can read this a couple ways but i will read it as a good thing…


  7. Sending you hugs, Adee. xxx


  8. A calm after the storm is better than a calm before storm, Denise. It’s so wonderful to imagine navigating on calm seas after the storm. A certain material for poetic experience of nature.


  9. Calm is all the sweeter after a commotion, Denise…


  10. Becalmed is such a beautiful word and sets the scene so well. Love the silver sea!


  11. I hope March brings that for me. February has been a full throttle rollercoaster ride.


  12. Our emotions can be such a surprise sometimes.


  13. Now for the bad news…
    Or, depending on how one sees it.
    Solar Storm Tomorrow at sunrise…on the east coast of the U.S. anyway…not sure when you’ll see it.…/sunrise-may-turn-out-the-lights…


    • Oh dear, I hope it doesn’t affect my internet reception, lol! Or the lights for that matter. I have to get up early and bake for a minor celebration. Thanks for the warning, Paul. God bless you!
