I write what I feel…

Silence is…

A warm blanket on a cold winter’s night

Before being torn just before dawn

By the loud cries of Africa’s birds

Hadedas, wild geese and louries

Taking off to circle the skies

Waiting, anticipating the sunrise

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!
