A Man’s Day #poetry #photography


pink begonia

Eyes that radiate summer

warm my being in the heart of winter

strong arms hold me back

from running toward another mistake

lovingly you embrace me

though I’m a complexity of errors

Like spring’s friend the firefly

you light the way for others

unaware you humbly beam cheer

spinning daily kindnesses

like the ever dutiful spider

who weaves above my doorpost

I am drawn to your window of beauty

prismatic you make another angle

through life’s aperture

sometimes I spin in circles

and marvel at the inspiration

that you with a word place into the sky

****

man flips a coin

chase his own wild dreams

smooth the way for others

There are men in our world who are loving, kind, honorable. There are also men those who are narcissistic fiends. I am blessed to know  (and have known) some exceptional men who have made the journey of life bearable. This is dedicated to – well he knows 🙂

Poet’s United Midweek Motif wants to recognize men this week – A Man’s Day.

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 think many of us have been lucky to have had great role models in our lives. Giving us love, adding to our understanding and helping us grow. I like you last line “Smoothing the way for others”.

  2. This man! a summer warm enough for spiders and fireflys–kindly and lighting the way for others. Wow! And humble too? He would have to be unpresumptuous to be a “window of beauty” and to be listened to. This poem defines respect for me–you to him and he to you. Bravo!

  4. Wonderful, Leslie, and so beautifully written. I love the idea of those summer eyes that warm you in winter, the firefly lighting the way for others, and his placing a word into the sky. Just beautiful.
