more  wonderful women  poets

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!

A Strange Affair ~ Depression”    by   Beezknez

of promise

Loneliness

Finding Grace in a landslide   by   Beezknez

Around her landslide of age
Falls a tangled mass of wild flower and vine
where ravens wings shadowed her light
nesting in the black holes of her eyes
‘There is a saying isn’t there ~ she thinks
about something beautiful happening
as one leaves life for death
She looks back to her reflecti…..Read more

Gayle  Walters  Rose
aka  BODHIROSE

Gayle Walters Rose  aka  bodhirose  is  a woman,  mother,  poet,  writer,  blogger  who loves nature, bird watching,  gardening,  many different types of music — and writing and reading,  of  course.  if  you would like to know more about her,  there are two interviews of  Gayle   HERE    and   HERE.

the meaning of  her name  bodhirose,  in her own words ~

“The word  ‘bodhi’  comes from both ancient Sanskrit and Pali languages and means awakening, insight, understanding and sometimes is described as meaning enlightenment.   I’m a student of many spiritual teachings and consider myself to be on a path to “awakening”  — the word Bodhi leapt to mind when choosing a name and I added Rose to it — my last name,  and Bodhirose was born.”

A  Walk  in  Haiku”   by   BODHIROSE

The harsh, chilling freeze
Slowly warms into the spring’s
First hint of dewdrops
Left unfrozen upon the
Daffodil and rose.     (Tanka) 

Peacock’s tail lightly
brushes the tall courtyard wall–
disturbing ants’ march

tranquil, green anole
basks on warm, idle…..Read More

Vigilant  –  A  Haibun”    by   BODHIROSE

It’s subtle but I immediately sense the telltale tightening throughout my body.  It quickly moves to hyper vigilance.  I look down at my hands and find them clutched together as if seeking sanctuary with the other from the impending increase in tension.  My heart rate quickens…there’s slight dizziness, nausea–which only serves to ratchet up the anxiety.  There’s never a turning back from this…it has to run its course, reach its peak and take me unwilling on an alarming provocation of harrowing fear and panic.

I search my mind; what…..Read More
