If Love is a Language #poetry #poem #photography

my sandy heart
my sandy heart

If love is a language

it is spoken with the eyes

candle lit low

that look can not be disguised


if love is a language

it is spoken with the lips

red hot spice

etched with fingertips


if love is a language

it is strongest on one’s knees

caught on the four winds

inhaling salty breeze


 if love is a language 

I could never dare to speak

words that I’d rather 

whisper in the deep

vacation 038


Je t’aime avec mes …


What language do you speak love in???

In two or more languages is the Poet’s United prompt.

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. Beautiful. Whew, bring me a fan. (Smiles) Very sensual and beautiful writing. Or should I just say this is really ‘red hot spice.’


  2. Thank you giving this beautiful piece of poetry to us… je t’aime, moi aussi, c’est mieux en français … I prefer it in French, much more romantic than any other language…Well done!!!


      1. Thanks, please do not misunderstand, I have been through unbelievable moments only with English… French sounds romantic…


  3. Wow, now I know what you meant by our titles intersecting. Always serendipitous when that happens. This is a lovely read, and I keened over the beach photos too! A wonderful post!


  4. __So much to love’s language: a word spoken; a thought, sensed; unsaid trust; moments, selflessly given; eyes that brighten; a touch; a nod; a smile above the hurt, to understand the hurt.


  5. oh it is def strongest on ones knees, that is for sure…love is a language not too many master….it needs only the words required, but is spoken in so many other different ways….


  6. Fabulous poem, I love it–the beginning made me think of the old Burt Bacharach song–Dusty Springfield was one who made it a hit. (The Look of Love)


  7. QED..love is definitely a language..i imagine the other side of that shell heart being completed by the person to whom this poem addresses so beautifully

"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
