Weekly Blog Recommendations – Poetry List 1

14 Comments

I have decided to start a weekly blog recommendation, which I will post every weekend, highlighting the beautiful blogs I have discovered on this site. It will range from a wide aspect of blogs from poetry, photography, art, travel, and anything under the sun that  catches my eye. I will also try to highlight new blogs that I have discovered from time to time, that I think has a lot of potential.

For the first list, I will give you 5 bloggers of poetry whose work I enjoy very much. They all spread the beautiful word and wrap it up in the perfect gift wrap of poetry. This list is definitely not the entire list of people that I love to follow but just the first, keep an eye out  here for more throughout this weekend and next week. Initially it will focus mostly on poetry or photography blogs but I promise you I will give you a wide variety of topics soon…

 

 

1.) Line

The inscrutable paths of the spirit

Line writes beautiful pieces of poetry where she spreads the word of love, peace and hope. I highly recommend each one of her work.

Here is a sample of one of her poetry called: You are Love

You are
an evolution
of Love
expanding
with every act
of devoted kindness

You are
a magnificent sunrise
climbing
towards the peak
of the sky
radiating
soft warmth
while painting
the clouds
with your light

You are
the one
who can quench
the thirst
of your longing
with every
remembered memory
of Love’s perfect Union

 

2.) AB

Perspective on life and Everything

AB showcases beautiful poetry complimented with some amazing photography. Again highly recommended.

Here is a sample of his work called: Return

New day, new dawn
and I am lost
in a place known
Location determined
situation strange
Mind deranged
Fate arraigned
a joker’s jest
Body protests
hearts arrests
Nothing but pain
Memory lane
Why have I come back?

 

3.) Anna Mosca

Annamosca

Anna is a biliungual poet who writes in both English and Italian. I do not understand the latter language but I highly recommend all the pieces I have read by her in english 🙂

Here is a sample of her work :

wishing for one more
soundless day

swimming quietly
at the bottom of
a sea of written words

– squealing and chirping
if any outside

the time held
between night

and day between
sleep and awakening

4.) Ihsan

iiThinks

Ihsan writes soulful poetry, and I highly recommend each one I have read so far.

Here is a sample piece called: Beautiful Silence

End the endless talking
Bar your words and thoughts
It’s a state of madness
A veil of distraction

Truth is cloaked in silence
Truth lovers are deeply quiet
They carry a peaceful stillness
You want to reach out and touch

The more you experience
The less you have to say
Words are aught but shadows
Facing the light of Reality

If they’ve ended their endless talking
Then hear what they have to say
They speak volumes with their presence
Their eyes give Divine secrets away

And if they open their mouths
Their words are brief and honest
Doing what they must
For every once in a while

Their words are more beautiful than their silence

5.) Jen

Blase

I am yet to go through a lot of Jen’s works but I really loved all her poetry I have read  and highly recommend it.

Here is a sample of her work :

‘From here to there
all in one breath
Closing my eyes,
I remember…I forget…
I’m beyond the Sky
light-years gone
Swept away by the Melody
of Creation’s Song.’

 

This here is the first list, watch out for more all through this weekend and each weekend here after! Enjoy and check out some awesome bloggers!

***Note to any bloggers featured in these weekly posts, if you wish for me to remove your name from this list due to any reason please let me know, and I will do so. Also all of the excerpts featured are the works of the bloggers listed, they  each own the copyrights to their own piece and it is not my intention to take credit for it in anyway, hope that is clear to all readers. This is just my effort to appreciate good work. If any bloggers feel that their work has not been properly credited or should not be on the list let me know and I shall remove it. Again thank you all for sharing your beautiful work 🙂

  1. Thank you for the post, I am happy to find new poetry blogs 🙂

  2. Very lovely thought-it is nice to see people that you love here and for such respect to be given in such a way. Recognizing artists we admire is an essential part of blogging.

    If I might kindly suggest something-that might occur to me, if my work were put here, which is a slightly different than reblogging. A copyright notice, might be in order at the end of each excerpt-every artist has their own. Permissions from each person (you may already be doing this), might be a good idea prior to publishing excerpts, even if a link is provided. Everyone is different, and we all have unique requirements on the appearance of our works, in places other than our own blogs.

    This is a kindly meant suggestion and my perspective as a writer; I hope you will view it constructively and with great respect for you as an individual, as I have the utmost gratitude for your support in my own little path, and admire your beautifully intended homage to those that you wish to feature.

    Blessings to you and have a wonderful weekend.

    • Thank you for your constructive note, I thought it is pretty clear as to the works of each artist as I clearly state that under their name and sample, but I will add a copyright note at end of this post to let the artists know that their work has been recommended in this post and if they wish for me to remove it I will do so. Thank you for dropping by and have a great weekend…

      • I think Holly has brought up a good point here, worth considering. You are doing a good work Neha and I’m thankful for your attention to my work; in my case if you put just even the symbol of Copyrights next to my name or work it will suffice… just as a reminder. So very often people, included some of my students, forget about quoting or copyrights. This will protect up mostly you and the poets. I will share this link on my networks. You and Holly have a very nice weekend 🙂

      • Not a problem, that is why after reading Holly’s points I had posted my note at the end to ensure that everyone was correctly credited but I will add the symbol after your name as per request.

      • It has now been added let me know if that will suffice. Also I have added copyright note for each excerpt featured at the end note for any one else so it is clear that I do not intend to take credit for any of it. Thanks

    • Those are good points that you had brought up so I have also added copyright note for each excerpt featured at the end note for any one else… so it is clear that I do not intend to take credit for any of it. Also in future posts I may choose not to add any excerpts all together if this becomes an issue with authors as being a writer myself I understand the importance of giving credit and do not want them to feel that I am taking undue credit for their work. Thanks

  3. Such a neat idea! I do look forward to discovering more talent via your kind recommendations.
    Thanks again! – Jen xXx

  4. What a wonderful thing you have done! And as these bloggers are all new to me, I’m going to visit each of their sites. Thank you for the recommendations and your thoughtfulness to fellow bloggers.
