I write what I feel…

Windy Day



Swirling, curling, the wind

Blew leaves from cracks

And crevices hidden from

Our eyes – surprise, surprise!

We who thought it cleanly swept

Since the last leaves had left

Tree branches bare, bereft

Of foliage, now find dried leaves,

Sun-fried to a crisp, strewn

Confetti-style across the lawn.

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
