Oops I dropped my Pen #poetry #amwriting


Off the desk it rolled

catching speed it darted between my feet

I think it drew a smily face

as it raced  into the street

I remember about the gingerbread man

who thoughtless ran away

I shook my finger pointedly

“you’ll wish you’d never strayed”

I thought about the vixen

who smacked her ginger lips

“You’ll meet the very edge

wish you’d listened to my tips

“Not waiting, I’m catching up

stacks of books to read

just a matter of time you know

my imagination you will need”



As a writer or poet do you have periods when there is so much to write that you just need to stop and regroup?

Lately, I have had so much going on including research for an historical fiction (that has been on the back burner long enough) that my poetry pen is running amuck.

Please don’t fret, keep writing and I will do my best to catch up with what each of you are doing.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we started working with an E. African team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. As a bio major and nurse, it is exciting to use my knowledge to encourage young minds to love science. 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. The Gingerbread man. I’ve always been very fond of him. He is very cute but oh so delicious at the same time 😉 There are times when I don’t feel inspired to write, but when I do, there never seems to be enough time to get all the ideas out…and sometimes I just scribble down all the ideas down first and then come back to flesh them out…which doesn’t always work because then the inspiration might have left me. Good luck with your research 🙂
