I write what I feel…

Symbiosis

The coolest draft wafts

 Through the branches of the tree,

Ruffling its leaves

As I lie curled up with my book

In the elbow of its crook;

With creaks and groans like old bones,

Branches spread wide overhead,

Roots range far across this resting place,

The quick nourished by the dead,

This cemetery comforts me

With Life’s circle of eternity.

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

  2. You paint a beautiful picture here Denise..I see an early summer’s day, a young boy or girl with an open and absorbing mind, reading for as long as the light lasts. Thereby creating a memory of childhood that they will carry forever. Thanks for the vision.

  6. The quick nourished by the dead – Yes, never thought of it that way but we certainly are the products of every one before us and they can nourish us in many ways and poetry is just one of them .
