Through the Glass #photography #haiku #poetry


 

we crossed paths at dawn you and I

you in search of anything that might satisfy

 gnawing of winter’s constant hunger

*

the cold seemed little impediment

there was something in doe eyes

that determination could not disguise

*

I could not reach you through cold glass

I willed a full belly to break repast

my hands empty of all but understanding

*

you caught me in your eye

too close to blink away surprise

we crossed paths at dawn you and I

ice crystals

Through the glass

a world beyond frozen dreams

more than meets the eye

Today’s prompt at Poet’s United Midweek Motif is Glass .

 

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

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

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. What a magical almost ancient moment…one that will be preserved in the glass of your memory forever I should imagine…crystallised and certain….beautiful piece Moonie

  2. WOW! The image of the eyes of the doe and the human, with the glass between–real or symbolic–is a powerful one! The world could stop rotating in that instant. How beautifully you’ve woven in hunger and desire! I read the final haiku, after the image of frost, struck me as a separate poem, a comment on the first. I believe there is always more, and love how you used the phrase “than meets the eye” as a follow up to the first poem.

  3. There is something magic in that moment of understanding when you look a wild creature in the eye and they know you are not a threat and you know you have experienced something almost too beautiful for words.

  4. This really resonates with me….as I have deer very close to my yard all the time. See them mostly at dusk and dawn. Many times our eyes meet….and I feel the connection. I always enjoy this crossing of paths.
