Dreams and chocolate #poetry

Riding a dream

looked and sounded so good

chocolate flavored clouds

on the points of stars I stood


Refused to wake up

to dull and more gray

pushed the reality of life

fervently away


Imagining a life

with flavors

beauty and love

kept my sites strictly

focused above


star-dust and moon glows

knights on their steeds

my bountiful dreams

gave me all I could need


Forced to open one eye

then another

to behold boots, hat,and rope

blue eyes -oh brother


Walking confident

taller than any man

I gazed and I gaped

at his leathery hands


Looking at me

was all I could hope

then he talked in his drawl

and swung that stiff rope


Smelling I suddenly

found was so real

leather and Chaps

thrown in with the deal


dreaming is fine

for all of you

but I’ve found

what I needed

and chocolate too

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are developing elementary curriculum for Ugandan children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. Along with the curriculum, we hope to develop simple fictions about Uganda for the children to read at school. Trust me books are in short supply. We will use our trusted story tellers: a butterfly and a lion to make the stories come alive. Stay tuned as Bethany and Me put pen to paper. 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. Simply scrumptious! A cowboy at that, what a lucky gal. Leather does have a fine scent. Not a lucky gal yet but hopefully one day. Till then I shall dream of chocolate and such. Loved this poem. Thanks for sharing Leslie!
