Complicated #poetry #photography #poetsunited


Always at cross angles

like waves against me crash

wind whipped standard


your eyes flash

multiple thoughts converging

life never to be the same


Blocking my way

shadowing my step

muddying my resolution


your eyes flash

multiple thoughts converging

my life never to be the same


Sandpaper like friction

seabirds fight for their find

iron gate clanging shut


your eyes flash

multiple thoughts converging

Our lives never to be the same


I offer you my hand

 simple gesture of love

please take it – don’t run

…or we will never be the same

Poets United prompt for Verse First is Poetry that Heals. 

Can abrasive, passionate words help a heart heal or do they tend to rip off the scab?

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. The image is very effective with capturing the uneasy mood. The repetitive questioning adds to the sombre situation. Sometimes there is a final point; the sandpaper, when a connection can bring some settlement….



  2. May you be in the best of health. May you be smiling every day. Hope your Mother’s Day celebration is the best one yet!
    Stay happy and healthy,


  3. A classic story of star-crossed lovers, brings a lump to the throat by its simplicity yet depth in philosophical mooring…but yes complications are the hallmark of the talented…consistency is mediocre..This is awesome!


  4. You expressed the turmoil that can arise in any relationship in a very vivid way…working through the conflict can definitely take you through some rough seas. Beautifully written!
