I write what I feel…

Holding on to Sanity

Thoughts flicker,

Feelings flitter,

Words waver,

Stutter, splutter,

Glimmer, glint,

Can’t quite put your finger on’t,

Blind man,

Just out of reach,

On the tip of your tongue

What’s the word…?

What word?

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!
