Snuggle, duvet – wet cold – stay – read.
Clouds gather, no sun – rain forever.
From teenage hormones to hot flashes.
Birth, education, marriage, golden years, death.
My life gone to the dogs.
Wrote book. Wrote another. Now what?
Dangling from an early ocean breeze
Circumcison; BarMirzvah; smashed glass; eternal cycle
Love, bathing in potential – my grandchild.
Enough, yet desire squeals more.
Lessons in setting boundaries, without instructions.
Independent child. Angry teen. Enigmatic woman.
Newborn, I slept in a drawer.
Transplanted to Africa, looking for roots.
Best therapist award: my spaniel, William-T.
Cynthia Mac pherson
Reading burnt holes into my lampshade
You can’t blame me for that!
The last surfer struggles out withered
Fortuitously alive on blunt knife edge
Awed by magnitude of overwhelming randomness
Inviting life. Noelia my new born.
Reached mid-story, but not final climax.
Fatal flaw: foolishly foiled by pheromones
Man, boat, two boys, still afloat.
Re(membering) twenties, fat(homing) thirties, anxious-cipating forties
Missing: readers, hearing aid, twenty years.
Anticipating fear, she only encountered surprises.
Manicured, pedicured, coiffed…missed train. Laughed!
Found: varicose veins, cellulite, bunion x 2.
Word scaffolding – reaching out – you? Almost!
Swop: Defender (new) / water, soil, seeds.
Hanging between two worlds, I weep.
Winnie Thomson: What’s the Difference?
“Go to bed!!”
“ Come to bed?”
started askew, rotated, now upside down
someone kept hiding the damn directions
Divorce in childhood result happy marriage
Throw the bone. Watch them fight!
Penelope van Maasdyk
Wanderlust brought me home to roost.
Made is RSA. Sold in UK.
‘Varsity dropout conquors sceptics. Finds story.
Recovered addict finds God alive and well.
Worn out next stop the graveyard
Stopped smoking, discovered chocolate ,got fat.
It’s raining, fear reigns in Zimbabwe.
White witches work wonders, Wiccan weekends
Patchwork Quilters capture moments in time.
Saving society from its sordid senselessness.
Savages in Saville Row Suits survive.
Cats and Dog reign, ruining regulations.
Mikki van Zyl
Burning passions, fat like the sun.
At 45, decided to be happy.
Horse lover falls off life. Survives.
Steep learning curve. All downhill now.
Loving living kindness all the way.
Born, bedded, wed. Lived, loved, laughed.
Hammer and chisel. Silent stone submits.
Dying brother, give my kidney back!
Life illuminated, lit from fire within.
