I write what I feel…

Time and Space



Intractable, invincible,

Relentless, unstoppable,

Inexorable, inescapable, unavoidable,


Youth fades as the dew falls,

Seasons come and go,

Life can last for a minute, an hour, a day,

A week, a month, a year, a decade,

But never… forever…

As things are now.

Time takes its toll:

We can run the race,

Keep up the pace,

But when our time is up,

Our place in space complete,

Our life on earth replete,

There is no escape.

Our golden years are all too short

And autumn leaves must fall

Until spring’s new shoots take bud

For a spectacular new birth.

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 love this Denise. It takes me down inexorably, then raises me up suddenly.
    What joy at the end. Thank you.


  2. Absolutely lovely, adee.


  3. Time flies . . . in the blink of an eye.


  4. Time exists in the moment…

  5. And so it is for all things, that will live and breath,
    from the inevitable end, there’s no reprieve.
    Very nicely done Denise, except that you made feel old(er)


  6. Ooops, make that “breathe”..


  7. the time comes for all of us…we use what we get and in the end the seasons do remind us…death comes…to make the way for new life…
