encore  presentation
2012  featured poets

at my heart’s love songs

Ranee Dillon

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!

Sighted    by   Ranee Dillon

Never lost
never found
the ground still
firm beneath her feet
She meets the scars
agile stars, unformed
adorned with nightfall

Never became

Cigarettes & Salt Water”   by   Ranee Dillon

Five cigarettes
She’ll numb the pain
the salt-water drips
down broken chains

Four notes pass
She’ll sing along
in wind…..Read More

Taken to Wing    by   Ranee Dillon

When the world finds me

I will be in darkness

search through despair

needle thin and blade edge sharp

with a care reserved for the most sacred

And when at last you stumble across

the tattered…..Read More

Dreamers”   by   Ranee Dillon

To all the tightrope walkers
Who dance on silver strings
Chasing pretty dreams
Without a safety net

To all the travel bound
Those journeymen
With bags in hand
Searching for new roads

To all the lovers
Who float…..Read More

Love Me Tomorrow”    by   Ranee Dillon

Love me tomorrow; when the wind shifts and the stench of past romances no longer follows us as we walk. They haunt in gusts, forcing the memories back; each smell, every touch assaulting the senses. Its grasp so tight I struggle to pull in breaths that sting with loss. The pain real to the taste, it sits bittered on my tongue, rooted so deep I’ve yet to remove them all.

So, love me tomorrow; let time lift the scars…..Read More
