Sunday Afternoon

.

Another scone…? Chocolate cake?

Thank you, I don’t mind if I do.

Children playing on the lawn

There for all the world to see

A picture perfect family

Sunshine on my face

But a shadow on my back

Casts its weight

In variegated shades of black

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!

  1. Ooh, I really like the ending.

  2. What we often see in public,
    is not always the case. There are shadows indeed
    that too often go unseen. A rather haunting close
    on this one.
