I write what I feel…

The Line


Post No. 850


The Line


A thin line came into sight

slowly crawled across the wall

a single stroke to start

a slash, a gash, lightning streaks

are added to the mix

across the paint, black on white

a spider’s web, a snare…

a fine brush, the softest touch…

and when the deed is done

she strikes, she bites

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
