Weekly Blog Recommendations – Poetry List 6

So I realize it is not Saturday quite yet in my part of the world, but I am sure it is Saturday somewhere in the world right?! …So here is the first rec list for this weekend. 🙂  I will probably have some more to follow throughout the weekend but for now I bring to you another set of marvellous poetesses who have captivated my heart and mind through their writing…You can find previous bloggers in the recommendation category. I am very excited to bring to you these wonderful bloggers below 🙂

1.) In the stillness…Laurie’s gentle healing notes

I just discovered Laurie a couple days ago through my good friend Line ( another wonderful poetess), and I was just left amazed by Laurie’s beautiful and gentle poetry. I highly recommend everyone to check out her blog, for it will heal your heart and sooth your mind.

2.) Petite Magique

I have been following Patti for a few weeks now and she is wonderfully talented writer who can get into the full spectrum of both dark and light poetry. She is a published writer and also a photographer but as this is a poetry rec, I am highlighting her writing more than her clicking behind the lens. I encourage everyone to check out this talented writer and I am sure you will be loving the other aspects of her blog as well.

3.) The Ark of Identity

Laura is also a published poetess who writes beautifully. Her pieces are powerful with a strong meaning. I also enjoy the responses she sometimes writes to works of other poets. I definitely recommend my readers to check out her work and read some amazing poetry.

4.) The sanctuary of my heart

I have been following Skye’s work for a while now and she is absolutely amazing! Her poetry is heartfelt and touches a chord with the reader. Some of her pieces are sometimes religious or spiritual but regardless of the religion you may follow, her message of love shines through. I encourage all my viewers to go check out this lady and her lovely poetry.

5.) Hortus Closus

Esther’s work speaks volumes about her talent, for it is soulful, powerful and beautiful all at once. She is bilingual and though I do not quite follow her other language her poetry is amazing! I highly recommend everyone to go check out the blog of this great writer!

CRÈME DE LA CRÈME AWARD

creme-de-la-creme

I am very pleased and humbled to say that I am accepting the Crème de la Crème award presented to me by the wonderful Ihsan. Thank you so much Ihsan your kind words and the nomination. If you have not already checked out Ihsan’s work please do so now as you are definitely missing out!

I know I have been very slow in responding to the awards I have been nominated for so far but I could not help but get this out faster than usual, due to the uniqueness of this award that was created by the lovely Morgan. Morgan is an amazing poetess, and again someone who I highly encourage my readers to check out. 🙂

“Simple and to the point, this Honour is awarded to ONE person. No more long lists, no more hours and hours for one post. Received by One, Given to One for being the Crème de la Crème, the Cream of the Crop, the Pick of the Litter, the Best of the Best.”  —given that fact I could not hold on to this special award and not pass it on!

Rules of the award:

• Select your Honoree and notify them. You Must Pay the Honor forward, (rather than just giving it back to the person who gave it to you.)

• Showcase their blog in the Best manner you choose.

• Include the Banner/Badge in your Post.

• Share your post with the world.

• Never forget to Thank the Person who Honored You.

 

So after much contemplation (and there was a lot of it, believe me… with the sheer talent I am surrounded by as you can tell from my weekly blog recs) I have decided to nominate a dear friend, I find to be kindred spirit who has inspired me from our first interaction on wordpress, through her writing and her lovely personality…and she is none other than  (drum roll) …Line! Please visit her blog now at http://pathsofthespirit.wordpress.com/ for some amazing pieces of writing that will inspire your soul and make your heart smile 🙂

 

CONGRATULATIONS LINE! YOU ARE   Crème de la Crème
