Weekly Blog Recommendations – Poetry List 2

Hi Everyone, as mentioned before from this weekend on I will be recommending bloggers from different fields every weekend. Here were the previous lists: Weekly Blog Recommendations – Poetry List 1 , Weekly Blog Recommendations – Photography List 1. You can check out some awesome bloggers in those list.

Here is the second list of poetry bloggers for this weekend, more will follow soon , so stay tuned!

1.) Morgan

booknvolume

I am inspired by the variety and beauty of Morgan’s poetry everyday. I highly recommend her blog to everyone searching for the beauty in words. She is a wonderful blogger and I admire her greatly. Here is a sample of her work:

Breathe In Me

I Close my Weary Eyes
And Sigh
I Rest my Breath Upon
Your Bosom
I Exhale Chaos
Pain
Frustration
Turmoil
Confusion
Hurt
Loneliness
And All the Chaff in me,
With its jagged and lacerating edges.

Sigh
Sweet and Softly Deep
Me
Quiet and Gently Free
You
Tenderly Whispering Love
Drift
To Touch You High Above

I Sing in Concert with the Blissful Night
In the Boundless Halls of the Echoing Palace
Of All Your Beauty, Bedecked and Glimmering
Phantasm and Mystery for me to See.

Lush
Delicate
Stirring
Refreshing
Breath of Heaven
Breathe in Me
Sing Past All my Calamity
Rest in Me and Set me Free.

 

2.) M. Zane Mcllelan

Poetry Channel

I truly enjoy the work of Michael and definitely recommend him to all my readers. I admire how different each of his pieces are from another and the meaning behind them. Do check him out for some beautiful poetry. Here is a sample piece of his work:

 

Diapers to diplomas

Cool early morning, I can see my breath,
suspended before my eyes, the cloudlets.
Wait for the school bus, my daughter and I.
To keep warm and pass time, we play “I spy.”
~
“I spy with my little eye,” her voice sings!
My heart is smiling from the joy this brings.
She manages to stump me every time,
with castles in clouds, memories divine.
~
A couple of decades now come and gone,
with a diploma, soon out on her own.
Like parents before, I wonder sometimes,
out in the world, what future she will find.
~
Did I do my best, teach her to prepare,
to be successful and happy out there?
Hoping she’s able to make herself proud.
Diapers to Diplomas, castles in clouds.

 

3.) Belinda

Busymindthinking

Belinda is a beautiful soul who blogs on a variety of topics, and though she has both photographs and poetry, I thought of her when I chose this category. I would definitely recommend her work to all my readers for inspiration and to get to know a wonderful blogger who spreads positive messages through her blog…Here is a sample piece:

Fading

Crinkled paper
Held by
Crinkled hands

Ink fading
Though steadfast
It stands

The story
Is stored
Memory remains

Her love
On paper
Beautiful stains

Time flew
Empty nest
Partner gone

He awaits
His wings
Not long

 

4.) Richard Tanka

RichardAnkersWrites

Richard’s was one of the first blogs I started following and have been truly inspired by his writing…I highly recommend his work, his poetry has depth that I know readers will enjoy following. Here is a sample of his work:

Moondance

We danced and twirled
Before the moon,
Two souls
Captured in luminance
Beneath an eternal veil
Of glistening dreams.
You smiled,
My breath caught,
And I knew
My life complete,
A moment unsurpassable.
Then, you opened your eyes,
And I knew,
I was wrong.

5.) Starralee

Madwoman of Ghost Harbor

I have just discovered her blog though she has been on wordpress much longer than me. Regardless, I am absolutely delighted to have found her…Her poetry is beautiful and I highly recommend what I have read so far…Here is a piece for you to enjoy:

Night Sounds

Night sounds, darkness lifts—

Old wall clock whisper-ticks;

Evening birds, soft song-speak;

Frogs love-calling—neighborhood creek.
