I write what I feel…

Passion is…


The ability to get excited
By something or someone
To the exclusion of all else.

Life without passion
Is like sipping cold soup
On a bleak winter’s day.

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. Thanks, AD. Passion and love (and they’re not the same at all) are what drive the world. 😀


  8. Poignantly passionate… Perfect! Nice poem Denise


  9. The only bit which has me doubtful is the ‘exclusion of all else’, unless it is only temporary. Otherwise passion would be a destructive thing, indeed!

    passion is def what it is all about…a rather bland life without it…
