Thorns and All #poetry #photography


red rose

How many loved you

the way I did

 shadowy our days

 wings of abandon

beneath the crashing waves

*

how many loved you

listening for your step

on lips we sipped and grazed

moon light in your eyes

melting in your gaze

*

how many loved you

picked away the thorns

begged you back

petals plucked  away

you left the soil to crack

*

how many loved you

willing your return

have to staunch the burn

no beauty in your leaving

but pain we have to learn

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. I had to read your poem a few times to figure out the message. I then wrote it and read it again and finally understood what really is the poet saying.
    There is a lot of pain, the poet’s love for this person, is much more than anyone else’s, yet the person who it is directed to seem either didn’t care or failed to understand.
    Am I close to the meaning, Leslie?

    1. Ranu, I love poetry because there is an underlying mystery. Love if you chose to enter into it seems to be bound to hurt one or both people. You are wonderful at getting deep into the meaning and you go beyond the words.
