I write what I feel…

A Portrait of the Sea



Capturing colour with light and shade,

Shining translucent as lemonade,

Swells as high as the heavens above

And valleys as deep as a castle keep,

We squeeze the paint from the toothpaste tube

To brighten her smile on this sunny day,

Trimming blues or turquoise and even green

Thus giving it all a luminous sheen.

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
