Sun Kissed #atozchallenge #poetry #photography


K

old, weathered sun has kissed my face

 youthful  color there is no trace

wind scorched have I been left to dry

you never stopped to say “goodbye”

*

the life we shared was fair and good

the test of time is where we stood

what came between love you and I?

you never stopped to say “goodbye”

*

some things do come and others go

life springs forth death’s a solemn blow

things fade away, I don’t know why

you never stopped to say “goodbye”

*

the hinges barely hold me now

I soon shall take my final bow

I say these things with fateful sigh

you never stopped to say “goodbye”

 Kyrielle:  a french form poem is structured so that all lines have eight syllables and each stanza of four lines ends in a refrain. The Kyrielle takes on a rhythmical form much like a rhyming couplet.

The structure of the Kyrielle is made of of a minimum of three  lined stanzas

(the capital line denotes the refrain that runs through the poem.) Thanks to Young Writers for the information

“People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”

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. I love it! It made me think of dogs abandoned by their families (of course it would, me being who I am)–and it made me tear up 🙂 Thanks for the lesson on Kyrielles–had never heard of them, but I’ve seen a few. Now I know what they are.

    Thanks also for the visit at Quiet Laughter and for sharing your bit on first kisses. Loved that you joined the conversation.

"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
