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. Updates

I Had a Dream...

Forever our tender hearts passion dare
A cross to attest to our sacrifice
I had a dream and woke to a nightmare

Betrayed by trusted confidant - thrice
Friends' cold shoulders like a thorny barb
A cross to attest to our sacrifice

Sackcloth and ashes, our suitable garb
