Imminent Decay #haiku #photography #nature


look around a bend 

starting of a new journey

what will future hold

**

what will future hold

my imminent decay

this life is so brief

this life is so brief

capture  the sun’s warmth today

 fear not coming night

 

 

Over at Carpe Diem by Kristjaan the Tarot card prompt is death. Though the card is symbolic, so much of our world goes through the cycle to get to the other side.

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. Wonderful! I crisped up like calamari dropped in boiling oil, and was utterly exhausted when I got home. So yup, had a great time on vacation with Mom over Mother’s Day 🙂

    1. This is a funny take on how our September and early October is feeling. Summer came so late, I was loinvg how it stretched into fall. But now I’m ready for the rains to come and where are they? Makes me think of years past, when the first real autumn rain fell and I felt a sense of relief and renewal. Usually that feeling was a surprise, but this year I’m aware and waiting for it like those books.You might work on the first two lines so they flow together, to make one break after the second line. That gives the third line more emphasis. I tried flipping them something like this:needing to be readthe books are readyWhere is the rain?

  1. your three haikus are a perfect example for: ““…Words are like dubloons. Each piece leads the way to more. Scatter the words and the reader goes on an excursion for meaning…” (your words)

    1. Joe, both of these haiku make me smile. I especially like the first, with its iittrewnned allusions to autumn, gravity, and Adam & Eve. You packed a lot into 14 syllables!And as for the second I’ve been there!

"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
