Behind the Bumper #poetry

On the road of life there are sunshine days and their are exhaust filled bumps in the road. Yet each day is an adventure in a Studebaker

It was a perfect no bumps

breeze blowing hair

California reality


kick off shoes 

dip them in the stream of life

childish glee



blow out in my rubber existence

stop can you help?


on bent knees

before the chrome bent image

 I am behind you!


bump bump

as my limbs rattle

against the gravel of despair


breathing hatred’s exhaust

leave me

on the side of the road




bump bump bump…

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. hi Leslie– how are you? I love this. I’ve been swamped getting manuscripts into the mail– the journals are reading now that universities are back in session. I don’t like this but it’s a necessity for me. Join us for Fri poetry fest if you can..xxxj

  2. Fantastic poem my friend. I love all of your poems. I just wanted to let you know so that you wouldn’t worry, that my twitter account has been suspended. I contacted them and pleaded my case but it looks like my account will be out of commission for a month. I hope all is well with you.

  3. Nice to ‘see’ you, girl. I remember those bump-bump days. I think my tires were always suffocating, saying “give me more air, give us some air. HELP!”

    Where ever do you get all the ideas for writing…just from observation, and maybe experience? Anyway, it’s all good!
