I write what I feel…




Look around you, if you dare,
There is beauty everywhere,
Beauty in the mountains tall,
Beauty in the grottos small,
The zillion different shades of green,
The spectrum of colours,
The scale of sounds,
All together know no bounds.


And all the creatures in all the world,
All the life that lives in earth
And sea and sky,
And that includes both you and I,
Live in symbiotic bonds whereby
Upon each other we rely
For the wants of life
Which we have squandered nearly dry.


We are not the masters of the universe,
We are not the kings who rule the earth,
We are here to live God’s plan,
Our God who is the great I Am,
And we his servants to do His will
And bid our ego’s to be still,
Giving God the glory He deserves,
Holding nothing in reserve.

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

    like a song…awakening us to the beauty that surrounds us…


  2. “Not my will be done, but Thine.”
