Fill the cracks

kids playing watermark

Give me a soccer ball

for friends and I to play

fast legs can run and dodge

keep the other team away

Oh Give me food to eat

I’m weary from disease

so many lives were lost

help us will you please

Ebola it took so much

my mommy and my dad

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.
