The Narrow Road #haiku #napowrimo

Where do you go on the narrow road? To another land where you have never gone? Only the story teller knows…

bridge

There’s a narrow road

you can see it if you try

look very closely

***

look very closely

for the almost hidden way

peer beyond the trees

***

peer beyond the trees

 imagination unfolds

a story is told

***

a story is told

worlds and cultures far and near

 centuries old

**

centuries old

aged hands move yellowed page

story of the road

The prompt for today at Carpe Diem  is the Story Teller. My story is inspired by Kristjaan and Basho both who have written about “The Narrow Road”

The Chapters of Today #oneshotwednesday

We closed the chapter yesterday

you were a whisper away

smiling during the dedication

catching prism-like reflection

a loving and tearful display

***

I turned a page in my life today

a new script to unfold

catching friends bloom ~a glance

butterflies in a regal dance

many stories yet untold

***

There was a book they say

filled with colorful array

it represented forever

we embraced it together

we continue to  play

 

Yesterday we buried a dear friend who lost the battle with cancer, today I bury a dream called One Stop Poetry, tomorrow a new dream, a new chapter will unfold for each of us.

To each of you who has supported One Stop Poetry and a crazy dream thank you; to my team wishing you the best as you pursue new heights – all my love to each of you.

My dreams and life are changing but in an exciting way: I am moving back to San Francisco – my home where I will care for my aging mother and where I will heal from a respiratory disease that salt air “wonderfully” cures, I am returning to my studies an an artist with my mentor; my books for special needs children will  be moving forward to publication; my dream to see artists realize their dreams will continue and hopefully take wing.

 

Please join us for a farewell to One Stop Poetry

 

Ode To a Writer #oneshotwednesday

Ode to the Writer

You’ve seen me in print
Reading parts of my type
Thinking my words
reflect what I am like
*
points misread
lies between the lines
mere complications
Space and time
***
you’ve read into words
sometimes that will be
When you misunderstand
What you think you see
***
please realize
I’m not who you believe
You never really saw
The unknown person – me

*

I wrote this weeks ago for a site that was doing a feature of me on a VLOG. It was fun as the writer in the poem was just a person. Today I spoke with a co-author/ dear friend. We  had big dreams and lived some. She helped start and I wrote for a small international radio station ( still operating). We wrote several books (  paid for  printing); they have been distributed  all over the world. You may know who I am today – but who I will become and where I was before there ever was Moondustwriter – well hmmm we shall see.

We are into week 54 of One Shot Wednesday having just celebrated a year of being.

Please join us and take some time to read fantastic poetry.

160 running away

I had a story in my head

I was finishing the last chapter

When it jumped out!

I watched as my 300 page novel

began to run down the road

“Wait I haven’t finished the …”

Aren’t 160 character stories fun? I actually had my 160 in my head and before I could jot it down it escaped and left me with this. Please join Monkey Man as he encourages us to write Micro Fiction
