encore  presentation
2012  featured poets

at my heart’s love songs

the  60th  featured poet in  2012!

Hannah  Gosselin

i have been pleased to feature some of  the most creative,  talented,  brilliant  {really!}  poets of  our time.  i’ve been so 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!

Not an Atypical Poem”    by   Hannah Gosselin

Lower me to the raging of river,

float me atop waters current;

a swiftly-slipping origami boat,

perching on the lip…

of the next swirling eddy.

Truth Hurts?”    by   Hannah Gosselin

It’s always the guttural grounds,

grounds, they’re mired and thick,

thick-lipped your tongue slips

slips spilling words you’ll regret.

Regret is tangible, heavy in the air

air that…..Read More
