I write what I feel…

Refresher Course



Heads of grey congregate

Once a week around tea and cake

At the start of bible study ~ a

Refresher course, training/grooming for their crossing

Into the future, I always think.

70’s, 80’s, 90’s and one turned a hundred last week.

Only a few, one or two, in their 60’s,

Not close enough yet

To feel regret as the years steadily pass ~

The calm before the storm ~

Where their elders can fit a year in a day

Or so it seems as time ebbs away.

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. Then again, it might arrive before tomorrow, stealing in like a thief in the night.


  2. The expanse of time is so much bigger than us. That is what life on earth is for, preparing the bride for the groom (Christ)


  3. its pretty cool that they all get together…those that are a little ahead can help those looking at it coming….


  4. My mom really enjoys her Bible study group, even though she says that her memory is now so bad, that she can’t take anything in.


  5. Swotting just before the exam! 🙂


  6. Each day is a gift
    so use them with thrift
    for there’s no guarantee of tomorrow.
    But when they are gone
    and it’s time to move on
    then do so, without any sorrow..

    Thanks for this inspiration Denise..
