The Wall #haiku


I never saw the Berlin wall. I do remember when it came down and was happy. I was 9 and my school teacher told a story about a wall that was built in one night. He didn’t talk about a city split in half  or the political ramifications; he just told us that he woke in the morning and could no longer visit his 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.

  1. That was a crazy time in history. Such tension. Unfortunately, that’s been replaced by other craziness. I guess it’ll keep going till we’re all done – for good!

  2. I clearly remember the day we were told it had come down, something no-one believed would ever happen. I went to Berlin for the Pink Floyd concert “The Wall” a concert they had said they’d only perform again the day the Berlin Wall came down. It was incredible. The atmosphere is something I’ll never forget. Never have I experienced the presence of hope so strong that you could almost reach out and touch it with your hands.
