The Middle of Life #poetry #photography

In a world gone mad – find beauty!

In the middle of the chaos

Do you close your eyes and aim

Drown out the sounds

Flee life’s futile game?

In the middle of today

can you open to a world

where chaos can be beauty

tho the notion seems absurd

In the middle of  senselessness

can you view another path

where peace and order

have replaced anger and wrath

open up your eyes

listen for what is there

see beauty

heart’s compass set to care

For those of you who are so gracious to read my work on a regular basis please excuse my absence. Life takes many turns my life turned and I found myself being admitted to the hospital. Still trying to find the problem and the solution.

All of you are appreciated!!!

In the midst of life’s difficulties there IS beauty…

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 the tenderness and truth of your poem. I’m visiting from G-man’s blog. Glad I did.
    Hope there’s nothing seriously going on with your health. But if so, chose a positive path if you can.


  2. That’s a great poem & photo, Leslie!

    Yes, I had wondered what you were up to , So sorry to hear you’re in hospital. Please do get well soon!

    (And yes, I WOULD still like to collaborate on a children’s book with you if we can somehow)


  3. When this post hit my inbox that was exactly my thought. I wondered why it had been so long since I had heard anything. I hope your needs are met and you find yourself better each day. Blessings to you.
