He is gone (Week 20 Poet Rally)


Sun has vanished

moon peers over the plains

gently she whispers

“where have you gone?”

“Radiating light

to other parts of the world”

He booms

None too quietly

She smiles in her dark solitude

Knowing all is well

He is content

In his world

Even when he is gone

he inspires

She glows with pride

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. 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.
