When you raise a woman, you raise a village – African proverb

Women are the real architects of society – Anon

I saw her from afar

She certainly stood apart

Like a beautiful Rose

Caught in a family of bramble.

Below is my first just published Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.

When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.

Jacqueline writes from her heart on passion, pain, suffering, loss and LIFE. I have been incredibly moved by her poetry and I know I will return to “Out of the Silent Breath” again and again.

Out of the silent breath

If you enjoy my works and would like to do so, you can fuel my creativity with a slice of cake or coffee😉

Every day beautiful people # 12 ….

‘Human beings are born with the instinct to express themselves through movement. Even before he could communicate with words, primitive man was dancing to the beat of his own heart.’ Ben Fosse

Street crossing

As ordinary as it seems, I enjoy watching people go about their days affairs. It’s always an enriching experience.

Hurried Feet…

Street[1]

From dusk to dawn

The flurry of feet

Hurried along the street

The needs of the day

Their desire to meet.

—–

The street is a happy place to be

With many things that you get to see

Sometimes, it might even be a clown

Or a lady wearing a frown.

——-

At times, it’s a happy looking dog

With its owner going on a jog

Or the man with the briefcase

He seems to be quite in  a haste.

——-

Some streets are dark

Some streets are light

Some streets are dirty

They’ll give you a fright

——-

Yet each street has its own soul

The heartbeats 

Of the passing feet

That brings it to life.
