I write what I feel…




Elusive, evasive

Just out of reach

Like fireflies

 In the moonlight

Flitting here, there


As if under siege

Or votive candles

Flickering in the breeze

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. Morning Adee…that was me last night…found it hard to shut down…it is going to be a long day.


  2. Morning adee 🙂


  3. Sounds like you couldn’t sleep, adee. Love your way of describing it. 😉


  4. A perfect way to describe not being able to rest or sleep, Denise.
    I hope you come back to inner stillness again. Then you can get a real good kip!

    Thank you


    • I think I took too much on my plate, John. Am cutting back all other poetry groups and only doing my blog and the newsletter from today.They are all that really matter to me. Please give June my love. 🙂


  5. Beautiful thoughts about thoughts.


  6. But as you age, the candles more often than not, get blown out, more than they


  7. Thoughts can be as pesky as gnats. Hope your peace surfaces soon.


  8. Yes Denise,

    There is a lot of similarity between thoughts and candles… both of them are fatty, hang on to a thread, and light our darkness and when the thread is snapped … plunge us into infinite darkness.
