Who have we here? Ahhh… the one who wanes and waxes with the phases around her, the Moondustwriter – Leslie Moon. Not only is she a lovely poet, but a traveler in both body and spirit. Let’s hear what she has to share regarding what encourages and terrifies her about writing horror.

Leslie_Moon_blueWhat can I tell you about myself? The problem with being a Gemini (and one who writes) is that we are constantly changing like a mood ring emulating the moon. Okay, too much allegory.

I’ve lived in many strange situations in my life: some precipitated by chance, others by free fall, a very few by intent. Do you ever strain to get away from something then run to get back on board? That’s horror for me. I lived in a kaleidoscopic framework of horror as a child; I tried to shut my imagination down…

I’ll Be… #horror #PEN

DAMNED!!!

I dont usually do too much promo and I never sell stuff on my blog.

But it’s hard not to be proud of these shirts and cups and stuff that Pen of the Damned is selling at Cafe Press.

I’m thinking black or cabernet depending on my mood.

The only thing better would be a 3D head that actually could bite on command. Kinda like a “guard dog.”

So if you see one of these shirts out and about, please feel free to ask “Are you Damned?”

Our answer invariably:”Why yes we are!”

And as you are sipping coffee from your “damned cup” read some awesome horror at the click of a button.

Ebola outbreak ‘worse than we’d feared,’ CDC chief says on… | www.ajc.com

Frieden, in his WSB Radio interview, warned that failure to control the outbreak could be catastrophic.

“This isn’t just a risk to Liberia and West Africa,” Frieden said. “With this kind of transmission, every day it goes on, it increases the risk of spread to other countries in Africa, other countries in the region.

“The impact not just from Ebola but on the delivery of healthcare, on economies, on families and societies. It’s huge. It’s absolutely an emergency.”

In Candlelight… #yesterday #poetry #oldage

station clock

Time stands still for no man

and yet this night

with dear friends

anticipated for so long

I look at my reflection

in a bonfire of  candles

I pass my finger tip

through yesterday

there is that moment

a hush really

 a red ball that I got at 6

rolls past

the bell from my blue bike

rings “8 years today”

puka shells

circle sweet 16

the string breaks

scattering on the sands of time

remembered treasures

I held for a brief moment

and now this eve

where I momentarily hover

looking at a girl

full of dreams

grasping for a bit more

holding on to you

before you slip away

for the first and very last time

my sandy heart

Today’s prompt for Poet’s United Wednesday Motif we celebrate an Evening Out. This post was also inspired by a haiku that for whatever reason caused me to look over my shoulder at my younger self. What would we find there if we could look at younger eyes? Would those eyes gather strength or recoil at what we had become?

Empty Shell #haiku #art #photography

watering eye

next to my footprint

the empty shell of a hermit crab -
Ah! what a sadness

(c) Chèvrefeuille (2012)

*****

Devoid of feeling

punished by old dreams

carried on a wave

Thanks to Kristjaan at Carpe Diem for another installation (part 2) of 3 part Vision Quest challenge where we have 24 hours to respond by writing a haiku. Today’s prompt “Empty Shell.”

Artwork: “Tearing Eye” is a pencil drawing layered on top of a photograph of a wave.
