I write what I feel…




The touch of a baby’s breath

On your cheek,

Its gaze tracing

Your face;

The touch of a lover’s hands,

A lover’s lips,

Gently caressing

Your heart;

The touch of God’s grace,

His love,

His blessing,

Embracing your soul.

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. I know very little about Greek but I understand they have specific words for the types of love you describe and for others as well. English allows us to be very precise with meaning and matching vocab choice but so does Greek in some ways.


  2. Grace, God’s blessing that carries us forward and upward. Blessings – Maxi

  14. Baby—Lover— and God… a good sequence, Denise. The first is an initiation, the second an inspiration and the third, a realization of an amazing invisible order that runs our world. Through what nerves that sensation travels is a maze. Usually transmission is polarised, singular and directional. But this sensation travels to every part of the body from a single source, fills it like a Balloon and transports us like a parachute. It cleanses us pure making us materially immaterial.


    • I love your description of the ‘amazing invisible order’ Sunamu. It does purify us as it fills us and we feel the purest love touching our very souls. Thank you for your understanding… it is so difficult to put into words.
