I write what I feel…

The Droplet


Post No. 915


The Droplet


As I watched

The line ran

Glistening silver

Towards the edge

Hesitated, elongated

Then drooped over

Poised to fall…

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

  1. There was a song from long ago, “Anticipation..”an-ti-ci-pa-ation it’s keeping me w-a-aiting……” That was the first thought that I had, upon seeing in my mind’s eye, that singular droplet poised on the edge, the brink, the very precipice of its existence as an entity unto itself. How’s that for waxing poetically? lol. A very thought provoking poem Denise, as I find most of your works to be.


  2. Your words describe my picture so accurately, Jake. Thank you for your really insightful comment. (and for the flattery, lol)
