You accent the frills

pave a fairy path

 whisper in spring’s blooms

paint the canyons grandly

say goodbye to the day

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. Well, no, it might not be a true haiku, but I like the way it continues this pteioc conversation.Here’s a way different poem that derives from your poem, trying to turn it into more of a haiku. Alpine lodge I wake from a dreamof summer riversThis takes away the personification in assures. (Human beings offer assurance. Snow just melts.) It also addresses the cause-and-effect issue that’s come up lately.Well that’s not your poem, Brad, I know! I just used your poem for an exercise about haiku.

      1. The word old has been the subject of much dicsussion in the haiku literary world. On the one hand, as a modifier it often evokes a haiku-appropriate feeling of transience, and the beauty of natural decay. On the other hand, it’s been used so often in haiku, it’s kind of worn out. Too much old gets old! But ancient in this poem is different, and evokes the generations of olive trees in that region. I like ancient olives.

  1. Life is different in pink. But then, life changes every time you give it a new color, which is what writers do. A black road is far different from a yellow brick road. It always is.

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
