Ripples of Life

Your outstretched hand

reaching toward wounded soul

fingertips meet


fingertips meet

heart warmed with kindness’ smile

reflect in the sky


reflect in the sky

ripples of  compassion

circle the earth

It is so refreshing that the smallest act of kindness can have a ripple effect

Thanks to Kristjaan at Carpe Diem for prompting us to reflect upon compassion.

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. As you know, Vasilly, I’ve been asking myeslf the same. On the one hand, the friends I’ve made keep me going, but at the same time I sometimes want to stop for their sake. I feel that now that we keep in touch via twitter, e-mail, etc, my blog has become a burden to them. They feel forced to read it for the sake of our friendship, and I don’t want that. This is the reason why I never told anyone I knew in real life why I had a blog, and now that some blogging friends have moved beyond the realm of blogging friends, the same sort of awkward situation has been created.But then there’s the fact that I really, really enjoy writing about the books I read. When I sit down to write a post, the process is similar to what King Rat described (I love his comment). It’s for me, and I enjoy it a lot. So I guess that at the end of the day, it’s really this that keeps me going.As for poets I’d recommend: Sharon Olds, Katrina Vandenberg, Margaret Atwood (her poetry is so good!), Fernando Pessoa, Anne Sexton, Christina Rossetti, Robert Browning.


    1. Hi Lesley, sigh, if only the news media (in all its formats) would share povitise and uplifting information and content. An emphasis on the good things that ARE happening around the world too. Can you imagine the impact it would have for those who do view the news! Thank you for the beautiful rosebud Lesley ~ you made my day my friend! xx
