Five Blogs You Should Follow This Fall!

Hi All! I know that I haven’t done many posts like this in a while! But late this summer I did a mass search to find new blogs on WordPress to follow. And I have to tell you, I have found some really nice ones! I wanted to take this moment to share them with all of you – because I think, or know, you will enjoy them, too. So here’s five blogs you should follow this fall!

“Short Prose”

I wanted to start off with this one, although most of you probably know them, because I have been reading much more of their poetry lately. I just really appreciate the level of quality poetry they put out. It’s classic quality. . . but with a modern twist. And that’s how I want to write as well.

“Haiku Spot” & “Blue Willow Haiku World”

These next blogs I grouped together because they are both Haiku blogs. In the last few months, I have gotten more into writing Haiku, which also led me to search for more inspiration on them. I like these blogs because I think they really capture the true art of Haiku and help motivate me to do the same.

“100 Tang Poems”

I just like these poems. I feel that they help to capture more of the ancient, time-less art of poetry writing. And that is something I would like to aspire to in my writing – rather than just serving the “flavor of the day,” so to say.

“Uzuri Art”

Link: https://uzuriart.wordpress.com/

This last one actually isn’t a poetry blog, it’s an art blog. But often times I find inspiration for writing in pictures or artwork, so I think it’s relevant to always be open to blogs that post pictures or artwork. And this blog is quite talented, in my opinion, and pretty much posts every day.

In Closing. . .

One last thing I always like to mention is that I don’t go deep into every blog and check everything they have ever posted. So if there is anything in there that offends you, I apologize. That’s just the nature of the game in blogging.

I hope you enjoyed this, and I hope that you will appreciate these blogs as much as I do. And, as always, don’t forget to check out my blog. . .

But, on occasion,
I can sense your breathe with me;
As warm winds blows west.
