The Door to the Garden #atozchallenge #poetry #art


d

entrance to another world

crack it open

songs stream through the opening

throw it wide

sunlight treasure dusts your path

go through the door

look upon adventure

don’t look back

behind you is gone

your past is a closed book

keep walking

surprise in the garden

 you are never alone

love grows here

 its fresh scent opens your eyes

awaiting spring

 

 

 

Poetry is the opening and closing of a door, leaving those who look through to guess about what is seen during a moment…

~Carl Sandburg

Didactic Poetry: A form of verse, the aim of which is to instruct the mind and improve morals. (information on forms gathered from Poetry Soup)

The painting: “Filoli Courtyard” is one of my mother’s paintings. It kept me sane this past winter.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are working with a team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. 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. Love how the window forms the letter D. It’s a great mix of things you have going on here for each letter – the visual art, the poem, the inspiring quote, and quick literary lesson. Lots of power in each post!

    Hope you’re having fun with the A to Z challenge,
    Jocelyn

  2. Beautiful. And it worked–the didactic aspect of it. I was actually envisioning walking through the woods to my own secret garden. Lovely, Moonie. 🙂 Thank you 🙂

  3. Beautifully written. I have a blog friend who is having to open a new door and travel down a new, unfamilier path. I am going to give her the link to your post. I think it will inspire and comfort her. Have a good day. I’m enjoying the A to Z posts.

  4. You’re a talented poet, and your mother is a talented painter. The two pieces work well together!

  5. Love the window photo and how the poem translates the love of poetry to mean a new entrance, a new beginning an adventure! Your mother’s painting is spectacular! I love all elements of this post!
