Two Ends of Life #death #birth #haiku #photography


awaiting birth

light shifts on forest floor

silent together

*

silent together

hands held through the night

his last breath

 

The prompt at Carpe Diem today is “Oneness.” I have just witnessed a wonderful oneness at the edge of death.

What thoughts or images does the word inspire in you?

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) 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 (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.

  1. This is a beauty Leslie … you have given words to your experience with oneness. To me oneness is the ribbon which binds us, haiku-poets at CDHK, together … oneness is all and everything around us … nice response …

  2. This poem, my friend, makes me think of a young husband I once knew who said that the feelings he had, holding his wife’s hand as she died, were exactly the same feelings he had holding her hand as their son was born………at the edge of mystery, it seems to all be touching the same thing……

  3. Continued speedy and lasting recovery. On the edge there are endings and beginnings – horizons are like that. We are always arriving somewhere and leaving something behind.

    Thanks for stopping by the lone lily. We had a death recently – And the fern…I have some too. Continue to be inspired! Cheers, Jules.
