Sunsets of Beauty | Short Poem No. 58

Sunsets of beauty,

with postcards and memories.

Come away with me.

Poets, I’m listening to Italian lounge music [click the link to listen, yourself], the sun is shining outside, and this picture hit me just right. Who is ready to go into the weekend with some sunshine and relaxation? Have any special plans for Easter? Let me know in the comments section below.

Speaking of Italian, check out this cool post I found that highlights the Southern part of Italy – Calabria – which is where my family originally came from: “Why Calabria in Southern Italy?” by Imagine Earth Travel.

And if you haven’t yet, check out my other latest poem, “To Be a Drop in the Sea.” That one, too, began with a picture that hit me just right.

Grace – I am a paradox | Featured Blogs

I pray to God most times that I may have the courage to accept the things I can’t change and if I do then may it be for myself that I may strive. . .because everyday God is grace.

Friends, this is a great post that I really wanted to share with all of you. For starters, this post was written from the heart – you can really feel it. And That’s one reason I really like this author, Mailo. Second, I like this post because it’s very eloquent. Third, it has a great subject matter. For these three reasons, I wanted to include as one of my featured blogs to share with all of you.

I am just a little flower The garland maker my Lord He holds me in His hands And I wonder “Where will He put me?” “Next to the big marigolds? Or with my little friends, jasmines? …

This is a great post that I wanted to share. Even though KrishnaPriya and I are from quite different religions and parts of the world, it is amazing to me how we can both come to some of the same conclusions about God. The beginning of all is to find completeness in His love.

Five Poetry Blogs You Should Meet | Winter 2018

Five Poetry Blogs You Should Meet | Winter 2018.

Today is the beginning of something new: Five Poetry Blogs You Should Meet | Winter 2018. Periodically I will be posting five poetry blogs that I think you should meet! I will keep these short and sweet. And, unfortunately, there are so many great blogs out there that I absolutely love, I won’t be able to show them all to you. But at least I can share with you some of them that are amazing!

I want to be clear: This post is not a contest and I am not here to try to rate people’s blogs. But there are, however, three main criteria that I make sure every blog has before I share it. (1) That they are active and post regularly. (2) They are interactive – they will respond your comments and leave comments on your posts and (3)  They have content that is compelling but family-friendly.

Without further delay, let’s get to it!

(1) Culture Shocks.

This blog is a mix of poetry, photography, short stories, and probably everything else! But it is always an enjoyable read. By theresaly520.

One post that I really liked was “Dark Night of the Soul” (I may be a little biased since my blog is also mentioned in that post!).

(2) Blue Feet, Bamboo Flute.

This is a great poem blog by krishnapriya108, often times focusing on the religious nature of things. Inquisitive minds will want to check out this site out, for sure!

You can start by checking out their post, “Our Journey to Nowhere.”

(3) iScriblr.

Like Culture Shocks, this blog also is a conglomeration of everything under the sun. But one thing particular about this blog is Richa’s support towards women.

You can see an example here with this poem “Dare to Survive.”

(4) KaylaAnn.

KaylaAnn is another great blog that often posts poetry. But one great thing about this blog is that KaylaAnn also offers a lot of useful tips on writing! That makes it worth while to check out.

Check out her post “Writing Tip: Managing Your Expectations” for some of those great tips!

(5) Truly Madly Ordinary.

While, this is not actually a poetry blog, I still wanted to include it on my list. That’s because you will still enjoy all these great stories that Ortensia relates from her daily life. Coming into Winter, this site will definitely warm your heart.

Warm up with her post “Papa Bear and The Halloween Disco.”

I hope you enjoyed this post!

Well, that’s it for today everyone. Thanks for checking out Five Poetry Blogs You Should Meet | Winter 2018. Check out each and every one of these sites and stay tuned for more in the future!

Also, check out one of my recent posts, “Love and Shadows.”
