Biography of Suzette Richards

I am a retired and first lived in the scenic town of Somerset West, South Africa. One of my favourite activities was to take a leisurely stroll on the beach near my property. Seeing dolphins leaping in the surf, had inspired me to pen my first poem, Water Dance, in May 2011. This is, also, the title of my semi-autobiography.

Since December 2013, I have made the Greater Karoo my new home and bought a 100 year old Victorian home, which I am renovating (when I am not busy writing) . The new surroundings have challenged me to take a new direction in my poetry and writing.

Golden Autumn

The soft sunlight bathes
the last of the flowers.
The gentle sea breeze
kisses the branches,
releasing the sensual
scent of the lavender bush.

I'm drinking in the
moment - savouring it.
