Defying Winter #poetry #photography #nature


winter shadows

Caught in a storm

crystallized blue wings

between barren limbs

searching for warmth

“Surrender”

a cold mocking call

small shivers

the bold whisper

“No, I carry life!”

saving beauty’s songs to sing

survive

shaking off icy arrows

cold dance continues

no warm hearth

scorn of winter’s blanket 

berries few and withered 

prevail I must

til spring

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. Kristen, thank you for your videos. You are an inaosritipn for me to live better, love my kids more, try just a little harder.I followed you last year when you became homeless but I had no idea that you were so you hid it well I had just moved into a town home with room and could have shared what extra I had with you. I see your success by the look on your children when you are with them. They never looked like they were missing anything. Take care and know that people do look up to you.Bill

  1. We have recently flaeln on hard times. My husband served in the Army for over 7 years and was injured in an Oil Refinery in 2009. He has not been cleared by workman’s comp doctors to return to work. His W.C. benefits and state disability benefits have run out and now we are unable to pay rent and are at risk of becoming homeless. We called the 1-800-4AID-Vet number to ask for assistance, and they were quick to respond, but they were also quick to tell my husband that they cannot help unless WE ARE HOMELESS. Can anyone offer me advice as to why even the web page says if you are at risk of becoming homeless, to give the number a call and they will be able to help. I find it rather strange that the VA is lying to Veterans when they say if that are AT RISK of becoming homeless the VA can help. Any advice as to how to break this system, would be great. Thanks in advance!

"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
