Sur la Garonne- Bordeaux (poetry)

I hear you calling out to me

Where are you – my dear?

a mesmerizing voice beckons.

caught in a trance

I must answer your call


The Garonne runs so swiftly

cold rivulets run clear

I am pensive

Will I make it?

I might perish as I strive


Ask not this of me

I am consumed by fear

Oh darling please

You risk at love

I risk at life

I have fallen in love with Terence’s photography. Know you will too.

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. c9norme cette image, comme d’hab Le brouillard en bas de l’image seblme faux et resseblme e9trangement e0 de la bue9e qu’il y aurai eu sur une vitre entre toi et le be2timent. Ai-je tort ?


  1. The photograph is stunning!!
    Your poem seemed to have done complete justice to it too!

    Le titre et la poeme are perfect pour l’image!! Tres bien!!!


  2. Yes, that is exquisite imagery, isn’t it. I agree with you that it doesn’t need words, but let me also say that your fine words are hardly irrelevant in this case either. They added a layer of storytelling that spirals my mind off into all kinds of possibilities. Just wanted to say that. 🙂


    1. Thanks Tony – get me in France and I think Les Mis , The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Count of Monte Cristo

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
