I write what I feel…



The dawning promise of morning
Where golden arrows streak the sky
And blushing clouds drift on high
Doused in purest gold

Too soon the sun appears
Reaching over the horizon
And the surrounding colours brighten
In a burst of blazing flames

Glorious scenes beyond our dreams
Pleasure and delight our senses
Oh that we could freeze the moment
With each and every small component

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. I had pictures beautiful mornings flashing in my mind whilst reading this, adee.


  2. And with each new day, a new beginning. Beautifully written Denise.


  3. smiles…you paint a beautiful and serene picture…and if only we could capture that feeling…that fresh awakening you describe…smiles.


  4. Denise,

    Ha ha. God is so wise in taking away that ability to freeze the moments out of our hands… lest we should be greedy to freeze every beautiful moment like the dawns and dusks undermining his intentions of this creation. Think of the present day corrupt political power houses. Will they let their reign end?


  5. “Glorious scenes beyond our dreams…” I went to heaven in a dream after my brother died, it is beyond description.

    Can you do me a favor, Denise. I have a new e-mail address and need mail to go to:

    Thank you and Blessings ~ Maxi


  6. super, Denise.
    We could sure do with some of that over here!
    Winter rules!


  7. what a beautiful poem, Denise – i can never tire of watching the prelude to sun rising…


  8. Doesn’t need a picture – the words do the trick.
