I write what I feel…



Post No. 903




Life blood leaks down the walls

Black shadows crowd in the halls

The old house shivers and shakes

While dark memories keep him awake

Memories that won’t go to bed

Memories that crowd in his head

Troubled, constantly whirling

Tossing and turning

Seeking escape from his thoughts

As the night drags slowly

Tick by tick and tock by tock

And the sun lags lazily behind the clock

Poetry Translated


A language of feelings

That speak to my soul

‘bout love carried on the wind

With scents of flowers to refresh

The tinkle of water in the stream

While I dream of things to come

In the free flow of life

Carrying us onward

Post No. 811




Heat shimmers

Air expands

And smoke drifts

Lazily twists and twirls

Gracefully whirls and curls

Ever upwards

Slowly gently dissipating

Dissolving in air

But still there

Smelled but unseen

As in a dream –

Doors slam

Dogs bark

Have you started the braai

They cry
