the  winds  from  the  sun
blow  across  the  planets
more  slowly  than  the  speed  of  light
still,  they carry  the  singing  of  the  sun

the  planets  reply  in  kind
each  in  its  own  voice
are  they  worshipping  their  star?
or  complaining  of  their  hardships?

the  sun  remains  unaware
its  winds  blowing  out  through  the  solar  system
the  songs  of  the  planets
swept  away  as  well

how  lonely  the sun  must  be
never  hearing  anything
but  its  own  voice

BIG POETRY GIVEAWAY (inter)National Poetry Month 2015 #giveaway

BIG  POETRY  GIVEAWAY

(inter)National Poetry Month
April  2015

hello,  poetry lovers!  have i got a treat for you!  i’m participating in the sixth annual  BIG POETRY GIVEAWAY   in celebration of  (inter)National Poetry Month 2015.  the giveaway is being curated this year by  Kelli Russell Agodon, the founder of BIG POETRY GIVEAWAY,  at her blog  Book of  Kells  HERE.  i will be giving away two books of  poetry.  anywhere in the world.

the first book  i am going to give away is the latest book  “The Cherub of  Pierzanie Prison and other poems”  by  Shay Caroline Simmons  aka  Fireblossom,  who is one of  the most original and brilliant poets alive.  you can find Shay Caroline aka Fireblossom at  ‘Shay’s Word Garden

“From tender love poems to the revolutionary red army,  the poems in this book will take you places you might not expect.  Meet a wampus cat,  a logician,  a demented realtor,  the sisters of  the Creolan mission,  the childhood friend of a now-famous star and even a group of down at the heels Roman gods.”

the second book   i’m going to give away is titled  “Gemini/Scorpio/Capricorn:  three American women poets”  by Shay Caroline Simmons,  Kelli Simson  and Joy Ann Jones.

“A rippling triple vision through the heart’s crystal,  both light and dark;  riddles of needles and glass,  demons and gypsies,  love for men,  love for other women,  love for our children,  love that damns and love that redeems,  all of these motifs and more twine like scarlet threads through a little black dress in this triad of women building alternate universes with words.”

you can find these truly unique and amazing poets at their poetry blogs,  which i consider to be the top three in the blogosphere ~
Shay Caroline aka Fireblossom  blogs at  ‘Shay’s Word Garden
Kelli Simson aka Mama Zen blogs her poetry at  ‘another damn poetry blog
Joy Ann Jones aka hedgewitch blogs at  ‘Verse Escape

bonus!  i’m giving away four more books in the e-book versions ~ i’m going to give away the e-book versions of  “100 Best-Loved Poems“  and  “The Road Not Taken and Other Poems  [Illustrated]”  by Robert Frost and  “Leaves of  Grass  [Illustrated]”  by Walt Whitman  and  “Love Poem Collection – The Greatest Love Poems and Quotes of  All Time.”

EVERYONE can get a FREE  (at least at the time of  this post)  download NOW of  the Kindle e-book version of  Edgar Allan Poe’s  “Complete Poetical Works”  on  Amazon  HERE.   Amazon.com offers  FREE  Kindle e-book versions of  dozens of  poetry books  { search  HERE }  as does Amazon.co.uk  { search  HERE. }

don’t  worry if  you don’t have a Kindle or other e-book reader.  Amazon provides FREE downloadable versions of  Kindle which work on any number of  devices from some smart phones to tablets,  laptops and desktop computers.  you can get the FREE downloads at  amazon.com  HERE   and at  amazon.co.uk  HERE.

If you’d like to be entered,  please leave your name and email address by midnight  (12:00am)  Pacific Standard Time USA on the night of  April 30/May 1, 2015 below in the comment section of this post and I’ll be randomly choosing all lucky winners the week of May 1st, 2015.

{as the blog author,  i approve all comments BEFORE they are published so you will NOT see your comment until i have an opportunity to approve it.  i will try to get to them all on the day they are submitted, but some may take longer before they appear.  if  you don’t see your comment within a week,   and definitely no later than April 30th,  please email me at myheartslovesongs@gmail.com.}
