Long Gone (Skittles) #atozchallenge #poetry


L

i found one piece

colored in memories

touching my fingertips

*

i hear unstoppable giggles

colored in memories

and silly moments

*

 i grasp all that is left

colored in memories

touching my heart

*

i remember candy coated silliness

colored in memories

and boys…

Skittles

This is written for friend and colleague Brian Miller and the boys that keep us young.

A2Z-BADGE-000 [2014]

Light Verse are whimsical poems  are represented in Limerick, non-sense poems and  Double Dactly.  (the above  is more a free verse)

This is a Limerick-

I met a strange man from Philly

Who everyone said was quite silly

he pulled up a dish, it was covered in fish

and pulled up a chair with fine Lily

***

There is no grief like the grief that does not speak

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Look not mournfully into the past, it comes not back again.

Wisely improve the present , it is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future without fear…

~Longfellow

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.
