3 Day Quote Challenge: Day 3 – Nanushka

Thanks to Prior from Priorhouse Blog for nominating me to try out this challenge.

This is for all the bloggers who are all around the world and come into my world as I go into theirs.

“. . and if our lives
should never quite entwine –
our friendship
lights my understanding
of your world,
and sheds a gentle lustre
upon mine. . .”

Nanushka came into my life from my Mother. She saw Nanushka, whose real name is Nan Whitcomb, on TV and knowing my love of poetry gave me a book, The Thoughts of Nanushka one Christmas. I now have 4 volumes of Nan’s poetry which inspire me in my life and remind me of my parents. Now I enjoy sharing her poetry with others. The way I write poems is based on the way she writes poetry I guess.

Moon Goddess

The moon
full and bright,
in my garden
casts shadows among the trees –
I thought I saw
you there
dancing –
a woman of beauty,
a moon goddess.

Moonbeams casting
landing on petals,
shining on my skin,
entering my being
enveloping my heart
making it race,
distracting my thoughts
so I think of nothing
but her,
dancing in my garden,
lighting my life.

I shall sit here –
awaiting her come near
that I might steal a kiss,
my arms
encircle her waist
drawing her to me,
to feel her warmth,
her goddess fullness –
a moment of passion
to believe that
the dancing in the shadows
is not a dream,
a dream of beauty,
a dream of
my moon goddess –
casting her beams
throughout my garden
enchanting
captivating……..

The Daily Challenge – Pursue

Watering

Arrive home
no rain
garden dry as…
start pump to water
sky darkens….

Still watering
sprinkles of rain
I say
“bring it on”
still watering….

Dark clouds
how you taunt
small droplets tumble
splash the dust
plants beg
we wait
still watering….

Clouds persist
the dust persists
the garden begs
the dam empties
finished watering….
