The Edge of Sanity (A Poem)

A white

searing light

is all that remains

of reason


Cling tight

to the edge

a mere breadth

of sanity


Perilously close

to the end of a mind

where raptor

swoop for the kill


The string is taut

that holds the key

will he

or won’t he






Do you ever read a word or a line and get inspired to write a piece?? I do. This piece was like a flash based on a line in my friend SLPMartin’s latest poem “Suburbia”

Thanks to Brenda Starr for the Key

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 love how you emphasized how even the flaws’, mtkeasis’ or bad parts’ of ourselves, is an integral part of us. A great message. We have to embrace everything! Thanks for contributing this week, Nanda. – Ermisenda
