I write what I feel…

Colours of Love




Colours of Love


From the whispered pales of rose petals

to the shouts of red and gold,

from the freshest green of new-born shoots

to the russet hues of old

…discarded leaves,



from the first rays of the rising sun

proclaiming another day,

to the beauty of the sunset

which takes my breath away,

the richness of Your colours

is wealth beyond compare

and serves to reassure us

of Your infinite loving care.

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
