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.

Do Not Put Asunder

When we met briefly,
it was not you chiefly
that I was seeking.
I have dreamt of love
sent from above.
Our ages peaking.

As drops of rain
wash away pain,

[Hata Bildir]
