featured poet of the day ~ Shay aka Fireblossom

.
i found Shay aka Fireblossom through  . One Stop Poetry.  her main blog is  SHAY’S WORD GARDEN.  this is what she says about herself  in her profile ~ “Poet. Story writer. Loves dogs. Hates haiku.”   she writes absolutely stunning poetry and prose.  she has another blog  Night Blooms  .  where she writes short stories for a mature audience.  in her writing she is original, bold, rebellious, romantic, evocative, provocative. to put it simply, she is a damn good writer.  no…an AMAZING writer!

there is one other thing… Fireblossom “created”  Coal Black and gave her a blog  .  COAL BLACK’S HOUSE OF PAIN.  the story of  her creation is .  HERE.   i’ve included a poem from Coal Black as well.

  1. thanks, doll. I never got featured before, except as replacement opening act, once. I may just go splurge on a basket from The Happy Chicken to celebrate!

    seriously, thank you.

  2. woohoo! thanks dani for featuring one of my fav online poets!

    • i’m glad you like it, Brian. thank you. ♥ it’s a lot of fun doing these because i get a chance to read through poems that i haven’t seen before.

  3. No one deserves a feature more than Shay (and her accomplice CoalBlack.) You picked some of her best poems–but then, its hard to find one that isn’t ‘best” Thanks for featuring her.

    • i had to feature Shay ~ and you’re right, it would be impossible to find a poem of hers that isn’t “best.” i think this is going to become a weekly feature after National Poetry Month ends. there are so many amazing poets! {including you} thank you for visiting and commenting. ♥

  4. Dani, you did a fantastic job on featuring Shay who, in my humble opinion, is the best poet writing in the blogosphere. Great job, it looks wonderful.

    • thank you so much, Sherry. i agree with you about Shay. it’s an honor to feature her on my blog. i appreciate your visit and kind comment. ♥

  5. I like this feature, dani … adds another dimension to your awesome blog … I have been away and have missed reading your posts … thank you for sharing!

    • thank you, Becca. i’ve already decided that i’m going to continue this in some fashion after National Poetry Month is over. there are too many wonderful poets to fit into thirty days! i won’t be doing it every day, but i may do it as often as once a week. ♥ thanks again, sweetheart.

  6. Even though my alter ego Coal has already been by, I thought I would come back and thank you as myself. :-)

  7. Shay is my absolute favorite! Excellent feature!

i'd love to hear from you ♥ thanks! {comments must be approved before they are visible}
