Promise – Published in Festive Riot

Amidst the darkness and light that filled you,
you hung on to hope,
as you lay your mind
on the first sunrise of the new year…
and in that moment,
you promised your dreams
that you would never stop trying…
you promised your heart
that you would never stop loving…
and in that moment,
you promised your life
that you would never stop living.
So you smiled at the new dawn
and let yourself be content in this feeling,
this moment, that made you happy.

Hello Everyone,

Hope you are all having a fantastic 2017 so far! Last month I was approached by a fellow blogger, Suparna from https://pulsingthoughts.wordpress.com/ about writing something for her non profit online magazine, Festive Riot. The magazine features some great art, poetry and short pieces by individuals around the globe. Needless to say, I was honoured by her request. I am so humbled to be part of their new year edition. Thank you again Suparna for the opportunity. Keep up the great work! Please check out her blog if you haven’t already done so for some great poetry and awesome posts.

You can check out the New Year edition of Festive Riot via this link. My poem in on page 6.

 

Much Love,

Neha

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!
