Weekly Blog Recommendations – Poetry List 1

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!
