Didn’t They Know… (Flash Fiction)

If she could breathe fresh air

maybe she’d be ok

If she could see sky

maybe she’d see another day

If only people realized

she needed something they couldn’t provide

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. Without any doubt this is wonderfully written…. not sure why but has me taking a deep breath reading these words, I guess something in it, just connects so well. Fantastic Leslie!!! *hugs* April love ya dear Moon!


  2. fresh air, sky… and that little extra something that would help her make it to the next day and the next – this brings back memories of a sister who committed suicide because she couldn’t see her way to the other side of the dark night


    1. ya know alot of things have gone thru my mind – a suicidal girl who needs something. A girl who has just lost a parent, child or a spouse. Women have a huge propensity to suffer and hold it together but even women break

      thanks my friend


  3. fresh air and seeing the sky – two important things to me as well..thoughtful written – reminds me of my teenage girls when sometimes they needed just something (and weren’t sure about it themselves) and i just couldn’t provide it – touched deep!


  4. Beautiful.
    It makes me think of, that we are sometimes fussing over people who are in a situation of some sort. Maybe sometimes we should just step back a little, let her breath, let her see the sky and hey than see might find the things she need…
