I write what I feel…




We all agree, my friends and me,

That time is not what it used to be.

Like a ferris wheel or the London eye

Up to summer it rides

And down to winter it slides.

If a week lasts as long as a day

Then a year is just short of two months

And the rest of time has just blown away

Like fallen leaves on a windy 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! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. “…time has blown away.” The one thing we can’t hold onto, time moves on no matter. We best take advantage while it’s here.

  2. THE SEA

    Do I ever wonder? You don’t know.
    You’ll never follow, and I’ll never show.
    Do you see the water and watch it flow
    And float an empty shell,
    And you think that I’m hiding from the island.
    You’ve a fault in your senses. can you feel it now?

    Time? What is that? I’ve no time to care.
    I’ve lived for a long while nearly everywhere.
    You will be taken, everyone, you ladies and you gentlemen.
    Fall and listen with your ears upon the paving stone.
    Is that what you hear? The coming of the sea?

    Sea flows under your doors in London town.
    And all your defences are all broken down.
    You laugh at me on funny days, but mine’s the slight of hand.
    Don’t you know I am a joker, a deceiver?
    And I’m waiting for the land.

    – Sandy Denny


  3. Love this! Whenever I think time is dragging,I try to remember the moments that it does not and just enjoy.


  4. Oh, I so agree with you, adee. Time has sprouted wings, and they seem to flap faster every year. Love your poem.


  5. so true…time seems to disappear so fast you now you know…as if the time has sped up…time keeps on sliping into the future….smiles…


  6. You’e right, Denise… time is certainly speeding up around us!


  7. Well, isn’t this the truth!


    • I would prefer a slow, leisurely lifestyle and I’m sure many would agree. So we could have time to savour our lives and friendships and all the things we enjoy.
