A Lover’s Face #poetry #photography #nature

Is she not beautiful…

Her beauty blooms over me

a sighing red lipstick kiss

I am caught

gazing upon your blushing smile

the heat rises as I ponder

“Can such beauty be held in a mortal’s fingertips?

will my touch cause her to brown and wither?”

I dare not risk the sacrifice

I entreat “Never turn your face”

I remain content

Imagining the silk like fluttering

graze against a waiting lover’s lips


Inspired by the beauty of this lovely hibiscus I had to write a poem in her honor.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing and publishing in multiple genres (including education) in E. African for E. Africa. As a writer, it is a thrill to write for children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 13 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 - my joy is in meeting you!

  1. I’m glad you did write that poem. I love the idea of man-kind backing away and not touching. We touch everything, very often changing or bringing ruin when we do. It takes a lot of strength to stop and walk away. I’ll have to remember that.



    1. I was wondering if you ever thuoght of changing the page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?


  2. “a sighing red lipstick kiss”

    beautiful imagery. Your ponderings have me wondering whether the touch is worth the possibility of destroying such beauty.


  3. Hey,Was wandering if peploe who submitted for youth issue have been notified that Ambit has their work yet? I feel a certain anxiety having read that there was some small confusion regarding the address for youth issue submissions. I did include an SAE is there any way to check if my piece arrived?All the best,Liam
