Love with words…

Love is such a common theme isn’t it? Love is also the most misunderstood theme.

These two poems will again try to define LOVE using words

True Love (poem by  Dave Holloway)

The waves are pounding down below me.
The sun disappears setting the night free.
Darkness enhances campfires up and down,
like glowing diamonds on a black background.

A warm wind blows into my face,
coming off the sea from a distant place.
I smile to myself, contentedness surrounds me
and ponder it’s meaning, staring out at the sea.

Then an array of thought begins to flow through.
All beautiful and loving, then I think of you,

but that slowly fades into the awesome sound
of waves crashing below on sandy ground.
Then my gaze drifts up to the far distant lights
edging the shoreline like a necklace that delights
an eternal goddess standing proud and sure,
whose breath is the wind, an enticing lure.

Love May Be Unsure (Poem by Leslie Moon)

Love may be whimsical

elusive, unsure

but it is a feeling that helps us endure

Without love we are cold

insignificant, small

we stop feeling anything at all

Love can embrace

or push away

how much better to stay

Don’t get rid of love

Remove the hurt, the harshness

bring light to remove the darkness

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. love may be cliche, but we always go back to it, when writing poetry. your post inspired me, so i thought i’d mention one of my favourite poems about love – Valentine by Carol Ann Duffy

    it’s a beautiful poem, though i must admit, i didn’t like it much at first 😀

    if you haven’t heard of it, here it is in full:

    Not a red rose or a satin heart.

    I give you an onion.
    It is a moon wrapped in brown paper.
    It promises light
    like the careful undressing of love.

    It will blind you with tears
    like a lover.
    It will make your reflection
    a wobbling photo of grief.

    I am trying to be truthful.

    Not a cute card or a kissogram.

    I give you an onion.
    Its fierce kiss will stay on your lips,
    possessive and faithful
    as we are,
    for as long as we are.

    Take it.
    Its platinum loops shrink to a wedding-ring,
    if you like.

    Its scent will cling to your fingers,
    cling to your knife.


    1. thanks for the poem. Love as a theme is like a bottomless pit. It inspires and confounds. Plenty to still write about:)


  2. that’s true. as long as people live, they will love. as long as they love, there’ll be poems written about the mysterious feeling of loving another person.
    i think it’s beautiful how we continuously gain a new perspective on love.
    as the values chage, the poems written about love change and i think – for the better. 🙂


    1. I’m am told that I am a romantic so I have confidence that love will continue on and as you said change for the better.
      Hope you have a wonderful ‘love filled” week.
