Dont know what to say (poem)

You answered


there was something there

or was there something



It had been joyous

every moment

of every


chiding, teasing,




Each moment of each day


like a rose blooming

each stage

a new




Is this

the brown


about to be

blown away



Thanks to : CTwirler12 for the dead rose

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. I like this poem as it references a lot of thgnis I have thought about and do think about. I like the simplicity in that it doesn’t take massive change and huge achievements to feel good in January. Just brightening someones morning is enough. Some genuine human interaction. And you never know what it may lead to What with the stressy nature of the tube in the morning, everyone rushing and moaning, it’s great to see people that have a smile on their face and don’t let it get to them.My first thoughts are to create a nice infographic-y style similar to my showreel work. But I may try an illustartive approach. I’ll see where it takes me!


  1. beautiful Leslie – and laugh at me – but i like the dried up rose just as much as the blooming one – i’ve taken some pics of withered flowers myself…


  2. I’ve been hanging out in the mountains the last three days listening jazz and reading poetry on my phone…now that I’m home I get to experience the full beauty of your writing..really enjoyed this poem.


  3. After even brown phase, there is a bright yellow!
    Well written , Moon… you have so beautifully captured the cyclical nature of life and it’s abstractions…
