Sunset 1

DUSK

Shadows crept under the door,
across the floor,
consuming the light
and all things bright,
colour vanished,
banished from sight,
only
the lonely
shriek of a plover
ripped the blanket of the night.

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!

  7. Is it only me, then? I read this as more grim than lovely. More haunting, but maybe it is just me :).

    • It was written as a warning of what lies around the corner, perhaps. So it’s not just you at all. 😮 I was so glad that I could comment on your blog at last. Thank you.

  12. Denise, What a joy to see your poem, and to know that you are OK.
    I haven’t been putting up poetry so much lately because the muse is not driving me – I have been very tired looking after June, but she is now recovered and has the reins back! What a relief.
    Thanks for the lovely poem and the picture with it.
    happy Christmas and a good new year.

    • I am so pleased to hear that June is well again for both of your sakes, John. Take things easy until you are both completely back to normal. I do believe our bodies let us know when we need rest. Thanks for reading my post and Christmas blessings with much love to you both. Denise
