I write what I feel…




Shadows lengthen

Stretching elastic bands

Into the husk of dusk

As the sun stands

For a while on the brim

Before dipping down the rim

Dropping out of sight

And the world is coloured

By the inkwell of night

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
