A glimpse of hope

It was broken

so was she

but a piece was still


That small shard

reflected life



maybe even a future


“Oh ” she sighed

as she picked up

a piece of her heart

there it is



It was soft


it’s true

but it was

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.

  1. Oh gosh!! This was too moving for words !
    “It was soft
    it’s true
    but it was
    beating” – A.M.A.Z.I.N.G set of lines!!
    They are still echoing in my head… I almost felt a tear creeping up to the sides of my eyes after I read this.. honestly!!!
    I truly truly admire this piece by you, Les!
    And her, I bow before you…

    What a One Shot !!!


  2. “there it is me” a simple perfect reflection of hope! I love that line it four small words full of revelation, possibility, and yes indeed hope….thank you for sharing!


  3. Incredible what our hearts can take. You’ve done a nice job showing this, and giving a lovely visual that shows – there’s always hope. I like it.

    Have you considered changing the passive tense of (to be) “was still remaining” to something a bit stronger, like “still remained?”

    It seems to me, that the second form lends a bit more resilience to that little scrap of heart, which I felt the poem was about – resilience. But maybe passive was what you were looking for. In which case, it works fine as it is. Poor little heart-piece.


  4. Moon, I agree with Pete. You have been prolific! I’m lucky if I can even write one piece that’s half as good as this per month! Still, there’s still a piece of hope…
