Welcome Summer #poetry #photography #solstice


Blushing rose

 

How long you have hidden

averted your face

the cold winter presence

no longer a trace

you hoped for the sunshine

dreamed of the day

fling back the shutters

blow kisses and play

finger the dew drops

on velvety skin

beauty is open

a light from within

fear not the darkness

revel in today

warmth you are clothed in

fan dance in sun’s gaze

The prompt for Poet’s United Midweek Motif is in celebration of the Solstice on June 20 the contrast of Light and Dark.

What does light and dark symbolize to you?

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 am not always in a position to show my admiration as to how pleased I am to read your posts, they are so meaningful and beautiful, I find myself repeating the same words, which becomes quite boring but I’ll have to repeat this poem shows what an extraordinary gift you have. Thank you Leslie.

  3. Lovely!!!! To have a “fan dance in sun’s gaze” is a joyful image, especially if you love the moon dust. Have no fear–here is the day you’ve been waiting for! I love the switch from past to present tense in this poem, emphasizing the cold of winter truly has gone.

"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
