Can We Fix It?

Careful, pick it up gently there now

set it down just a little peek

aww it’s  so precious fragile and dear

can we fix it give it life anew?


I’m not sure have to wait and see

give it tender attention

yes -love’s what it needs

to fix this sweet broken heart

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are developing elementary curriculum for Ugandan children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. Along with the curriculum, we hope to develop simple fictions about Uganda for the children to read at school. Trust me books are in short supply. We will use our trusted story tellers: a butterfly and a lion to make the stories come alive. Stay tuned as Bethany and Me put pen to paper. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2012 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the (quiet) originator of the idea and co-producer of One Stop Poetry. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

    1. Dear Lorrie, Pat, Marty and Rae,Alex, Taylour and I would like to send our loving ccenoledons to allof you in the passing away of your dear father. I have so many fond memories of Uncle Johnny, as I called him, datingback to Regina, the ranch and Toronto gatherings at Lorrie and Alec’s,in Nanaimo with my two boys and at my home. He was such a wonderfulstoryteller and I loved hearing of his adventures as a young boy inManitoba helping his Dad with the cattle and being pursued by theschool authorities. I enjoy a special photo of him with my Mom in myliving room taken at one of her birthday parties.He was a very special person and a beloved father, husband,grandfather, uncle and citizen of the world.We will be thinking of you tomorrow as you celebrate his extraordinary life.With much love,Lynn-Marie, Alex and Taylour


  1. once it is broken, it is hard to fix it,
    it is never the same!
    Happy Rally!
    Please nominate a poet for your week 17 perfect poet award acceptance…


  2. A great piece. I felt it set a mood for me. Somber, sullen, but can it be brought anew?

    Talented work. Happy I found this blog through Twitter


  3. can we fix it??? There’s not many things that cant be fixed, its how much you want to that generally stands in the way……

    Once again lovely words from a lovely person


  4. Not sure how to read the first stanza… thought it could be taken as condescending or encouraging until I read the second half. Great poem.


  5. Broken things once fixed, just have more character than before. a new layer, a new story that goes with the scar. and anything can be fixed if someone is willing to take the time, good work well worth the read.
