Stopping for the Calm #poetry #photography

winter water


I had to stop reflect on  blue

the water so beautiful like something else I knew

a robin’s egg readied for spring

blue morpho butterfly perched on a twig

I had to stop reflect on  water

were it spring I would not have bothered

the rain had been a soaking downpour

in little less than an hour before

I had to stop reflect on life

one moment grey the next was light

and never mix your metaphors

when you stand upon the changing shore



This picture was taken Jan 1, 2014. It looks like an early fall day. The storm had had me concerned about driving through it once the sun went down.

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.
