Monday Quotes To Get You Through

I am back at it again; editing my first poetry book. Only now, I will share quotes that get me through this creative and stimulating period. So keep visiting each Monday.

I want to launch this book at the end of 2018, which is just around the corner. Bring talk into fruition. Let’s do this 😃

I Am Here

I have not posted in a while. Still, I am here. 4 years with WordPress. Wonderful indeed. It’s a new year and I wish you a peaceful one.

About my poetry book: things will fall into place in good time. I have yet to give myself a time frame for that. In the meantime, feel free to visit me here where I work with my music:


Thank you for being here.

Things we can’t imagine

Could Claude Debussy imagine me being soothed by his music and sharing it online? There are many small things that we do today that will impact someone’s life. Think about it.

Letting my poetry book marinate. Let’s give from a sincere place folks.

I am also here:


Life can get challenging sometimes, so when it does, find the light; in a poem, a song, a good conversation, a shared meal, rest, under a tree or by the sea.

I remember going through a painful period in my life that pushed me to write my first WordPress post about returning home to South Africa, essentially to myself. Some day I will tell you about how poetry chose me back then.

Now almost 2000 followers later, I am truly grateful for your support, guidance and inspiration. Time to focus on editing my poetry book and it’s more work than I ever expected. I will visit you and post music from time to time until I find that place again to post a new poem.

Take a chance. Write.

Spring’s bittersweet tears
For life was never more with us
Than when we bathed in mercy.

Everything that was never promised
Eventually arrived as hollow as grief
Some things do not fall under justice.

Deep light

Quietly after summer upon my body
Is she changing her colours again
Will we understand love before we make it
Will we honour the answers at this depth
Do we know what poverty is
Are we awake.
