Happy are We #poetry

piglet and winnie

we walked down the trail

of hopefuls and dreams

skipping to made-up tunes

holding balloons full of imaginings

the world floated below in color

our feet nudged the puffy sky

there is so much of wonder

let us open our eyes

take my hand as they higher lift 

magical and so much in store

as we rise above the hills

panoramic and so much more

never extinguish mind images

where  children laugh and play

melody bobs with the carousel

we love the ride every day

we walked down the trail

of hopefuls and dreams

skipping to made-up tunes

letting go balloons full of imaginings


Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.”
A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

“Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon.”
A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

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. Oh I love this. You not only ouched the child in me, but you made me even more grateful to have children in my life. Thank you so much for this. Oh, and I really like your drawings too.


  2. i liked the almost innocent voice here. brings me back right away to childhood years where i walked with friends and just embracing the silly moments without worrying too much. ah, happiness brought by friendship – thanks for this


  3. Absolutely loved this! Brought me such a smile. Reminded me of sitting back and listening to my kiddos laughter and awesome imaginary games. 🙂


  4. Amazing poem. Trip down memorary lane to carefree days. Balloons…though I was afraid of them as a kid, I always thought they looked cheery. These days what makes me happy is seeing my loved ones and a good meal 🙂


  5. I must have caught one of your balloons, because I was skipping down the trail as though at your side (and Winnie the Pooh and y pleasant, visually beautiful and Piglet too). The poem draws on our senses, lyrical metre is soooo pleasant. Visually, the poem is also stunning on the screen!


  6. ooops how did this happen?……that was a comment on Hannah’s poem :0….love your poem, Leslie…..its happy spirit touched and lifted my heart higher…such is the effect of happiness, i guess…


  7. I love the sense of escaping into an imaginative world, even while pondering life with my coffee…It is a little luxury, which returns a happiness, worth conserving!! Childlike, but calming…


  8. we walked down the trail
    of hopefuls and dreams
    skipping to made-up tunes
    letting go balloons full of imaginings

    Sounds good to me! ❤
    Another wonderful poem 😀
