Back at the Start #anniversary #blogging #thankyou

Moon by ShironekoEuro

Thanks to each of you who have encouraged me (since 2009)  to write and re-discover my love for poetry and find the art of haiku a delight.

If you know anything about me, you know I am a writer (children’s primarily) and an editor. This blog and the people I have been so fortunate to meet here have inspired me to express myself through poetry and more recently through photography and haiku.

Each of you will never know how much I appreciate your encouragement through the years. I give you a thank you from the depth of my heart.

Here’s to another year of inspiration and art with friends – Cheers!!

This poem (updated) is the first poem I posted on this WordPress blog. The original is archived here.

La Luna she is clothed
shimmery ivory white
she dances and she sways
the ritornelle at night

She gazes past her shoulder

reflection does she see
beams a fanciful knowing
an ageless beauty

All who gaze upon her

delight at that profile

at evening lights their pathway

with her glowing smile


La Luna is enshrouded

cloaked in deepest  dark nest
surrounded by a silence
shivering  emptiness

No audience to marvel

her beauty in the wings
No chorus as she dances
she alone – no voice to sing

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.
