Connected #poetry #photography


Like the roots of life seeking tree

the colorful threads, a tapestry

we weave and sow

our lives together grow

what the source then

is it love for ink,  joy of  pen?

 does the dust from your star

mingle with mine no matter how far?

*

we weave and sow

and like friends tho far we grow

the songs we sing may different be

you may swim a different sea

your blue eyes twinkle mine do laugh

champagne bubbles in each other’s glass

a toast I raise to you to me

splendors shared, writers we

Join Verse First and the delightful prompt ” We are interconnected”

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. Leslie, I was so happy to see your name at Mr Linky and knew I would love your poem. How delightful to find you wrote about the interconnected poetry web and the friendships we make from near and far. I especially love “splendors shared, writers we”. LOVE the wonderful photo…….the twigs, the roots, the leaves – another cycle of interconnection, death, rebirth and growth.

  2. yes, I think especially we writers who come together here in the blogging world… I do feel that bond, sometimes closer than with most people I know in the flesh

  3. I really like the idea of writers weaving a tapestry together, Leslie, despite different songs there are a lot of similarities, and wonderful to see the ending with a toast raised to ‘writers we.’ Good to see you here at Poets United!

  4. Oh, this is so true. Many of my friends have no idea I (try to) write poetry… and if they do, have never read it. This interconnectedness here is truly my Inspiration. 🙂
