encore presentation
2012 featured poets
at my heart’s love songs

Ainsley Allmark

to celebrate {inter}national poetry month,  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 three 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!

Ainsley Allmark

Ainsley Allmark  { @DolphinDancer }  is an amazing writer of  prose and poetry, as well as a stunning photographer.  he lives on the western point of Cornwall in the United Kingdom ~ as he describes it,  he is  “living in a wonderful part of the world…  ‘twixt sea and magical circle on the moor…”   he is so prolific that he has multiple  “Dolphin”  blogs.  he tends toward short poetry forms,  but his longer poems are wonderful ~ especially the romantic ones.  in his own words,  Ainsley is  “a spiritual explorer, collector of random things.”

enjoy a small taste of  his talent  ~
