No answers (55)

She called

no answer…

A big tear drop

filled with hope

dreams and desires

cascaded to the parapet

of  her heart

There was an emptiness

in the ring

a “you are not wanted”

sound in each space

“Go on”, it said

“find another

to call with the answers”

just then the phone rang…

Thanks Rev Dan Catz for the Phone from the St. Francis San Francisco

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are working with a team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children 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 (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. That space does grate doesnt it. We are an impatient culture. Can’t imagine waiting months for a letter.


  3. I’m so glad someone called. Her day would have been ruined and it possibly would have gone on for days. Excellent 55 my friend. Let’s hope it wasn’t a wrong number LOL. 🙂 Have a wonderful Friday 🙂


  4. Most of the time, I hate the phone, and have often considered just not having one. But there are times when it becomes a lifeline or a magical connection to someone important. You’ve crafted this so well, Moon.


  5. just wanted to thank you for the kindness of stopping by my place to offer some encouraging words even though i didn’t play this week. it was very sweet of you. i tried to come earlier and had no lluck since the link was broken but was glad to find eric alder had left a working one so i could come say thanks (couldn’t get here from your profile either.)
