A Meeting Like Stardust

Do you know what it’s like

to come face to face

with someone

who has been where

you’ve been?

It’s like stardust

that makes everything

imagined real.


The past steps forward,

a stranger

who is not a stranger,

but the only friend

you’ve ever had.



If the world could disappear

it would be perfect.

 

Do you know what it’s like

to hear a voice

that says

what it doesn’t speak,

and feel a hand

that barely touches

but holds you close

to immortality?




This is very old (1994) and very personal – less of a poem than a rambling, but it was written from my heart that still feels it to this day.

Repost: By a Thread

Hope those that have, don’t mind seeing this one again. Still on hiatus from posting anything brand new due to writing projects and, unexpectedly, a nasty flu bug, and what this poem expresses, I think.  My apologies for being absent from so many of the blogs I love to follow. Blessings to all.


So small

of its own making,

hesitant

to go up or down,

caught in a

movement larger than

its life,

taken for a ride,

let down so gently

after all.

Flattens out then gets

up again,

delicate and brave

as it

decides its next move.

Tiniest spider

I’ve ever

seen, slowly sliding

through the cracks

where it’s safe.

Brachyscombe – “Royal Blue” – (Daisy family Asteraceae)

I am long overdue in sharing the talents and insights of my dear friend, Christine. This is an extraordinary piece of poetry and photography and I am so pleased to offer it. And it seems an appropriate post, considering the bee in her photo who is attempting a getaway, to mention that I may be taking a little break from posting anything brand new as I have some important on-going writing and artwork projects that I must concentrate on. I have already been too absent on many of your blogs for which I apologize, and hope to be around here and there in that respect. I know I am missing some wonderful work which I intend to try to catch up on when I am able. But my ability to multi-task at the ripe age of 60 is not what it once was, and in-between the ‘day’ job I need to focus on finishing the sequel to ‘A House Near Luccoli’ and, also, an illustrated short story I am writing that will hopefully be included in All Things That Matter Press’ kindle shorts publications. In the meantime, enjoy this delicious offering from poet, photographer, and inspiring spirit, Christine Moran! Blessings to all. ☮ & ♥

Perfect Imperfection

“Bee Told”

“No, no”, says the bee,
“daisies must take centre stage,
please take your photograph.”
I plead with him to stay
as he nuzzles very edge of petals,
demonstrates his hovering skills.
But modesty flutters him into the wings
and there he stays.
