more  marvelous  men  poets

i am pleased to be featuring some of  the most creative,  talented,  brilliant  {really!}  poets of  our time.  i have been fortunate over the past two and a half years to meet this amazing group of  people through twitter and their blogs.  not only are they writers who excite and enchant and entrance their readers,  they are,  one and all,  nice people who are supportive of  everyone in our online poetry community.  the “age of  technology”  has,  in fact,  facilitated the spread of  the ARTS! ~  poetry,  photography,  art,  prose,  music…   i have friends i have yet to meet face-to-face from all around the world.  day or night,  you can visit their blogs and be transported to another time or place or frame of  mind with just a few clicks of  a mouse.  i find it thrilling!  and i believe you will find it equally thrilling to discover their words.

just click on the  “Read More”  links on each poem to be taken to a new tab or window to read the rest of  the poem on the author’s blog.  if  you enjoy what you read,  please leave a comment on their blog to let them know.  { you don’t have to say you saw them here. }  i am truly honored that these wonderful people agreed to be featured on my blog ~  my gratitude to them all.

and thank you for coming to our celebration ~  enjoy!

Peter  Lindsey
aka  expatinCAT

i met Peter  on twitter in late 2010  { @expatinCAT } ~  he tweets beautiful poetry.  he offered to write me a poem if  i would bake him a  Victorian Sandwich Cake.   i did and tweeted him photos which were terrible because  (a)  my non-smart cell phone takes horrible pictures and (b) by the time i got even a semi-decent pic,  the whipped cream filling was melting causing the top layer to slide.  a few months later i made him a Black Forest Cake.  { i baked real cakes then sent him terrible pictures.  as bad as they looked,  they tasted great!  the fun for me was baking something i’d never tried before. } {smile}

Peter has been living and working in Spain for the last 17 years.  he works as a freelance teacher,  teaching English as a foreign/second language.  an amateur writer who’s trying to  “get his head round what it means to be me at the ‘meridian’  of  his life.  how he fits this space and this time fits him ~  writing is a form of expression that allows him to do it.”   Peter likes writing,  poetry,  haiku,  art,  American fiction,  thinking,  business,  beauty,  music,  philosophy,  physics,  natural history,  mathematics,  writing…   he has published poems  *Zanzibar*  in Symmetry Pebbles Issue 2,  haiku published in the British Haiku Society Members’ Anthology 2011,  and several haiku and senryu in upcoming journals of the  British Haiku Society.  Peter has  two blogs ~  expatinCAT’s Blog  and  tesellatedmein his own words ~

“I  write words;  haiku,  senryu,  gogyohka,  tanka… poetry.  Member of the British Haiku Society.  Blogger.  Gentleman.”

Await muse quill to ink the skins of your back.

Swirl flowing cursive forming alphabetical rhythms.

  1. A belated thank you Dani to brave my mostly NSFW blog, finding and sharing some gems that I wrote and mostly forgotten. It’s been a while, but I feel finding my old self again is so pleasurable. Gratefully, Pierre xxx

    • i was so happy you allowed me to include you in the featured poet series, Pierre! and personally, i like erotica so it wasn’t a hardship to browse through your blog. {smile}

      • Thank you ;) . Erotica can be offensive to some people and sensual, a turn on for others. As a writer, it’s a very challenging genre. Thank you again Dani ;)

        • i don’t write any or link to any on my blog but, as i said, i like erotica. how do you think i found your blog? {smile} i have several women friends who have separate blogs just for their erotic writings. what’s interesting to me is that most don’t think they’re also good poets. it was my pleasure to feature some of your poetry, Pierre. {smile}

talk to me, baby ♥ ♥ ♥ {comments must be approved before they are visible}
