Dont know what to say (poem)


You answered

but

there was something there

or was there something

missing?

***

It had been joyous

every moment

of every

day

chiding, teasing,

laughing

loving

***

Each moment of each day

beautiful

like a rose blooming

each stage

a new

fragrant

beauty

***

Is this

the brown

dry

about to be

blown away

dead

end

Thanks to : CTwirler12 for the dead rose

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we started working with an E. African team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. As a bio major and nurse, it is exciting to use my knowledge to encourage young minds to love science. 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!
