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!

Togetherness – a poem   by   Sheila

I seep into your pores and

The Student Becomes the Teacher   by   Sheila

“Patience, Grasshopper,” I say. Cliché, I know.
Yet, as my daughter’s world expands past Eden’s garden gates
I pray that she keeps wearing her rose-colored glasses,
and forever sees the forest for the trees…unlike me.

I was a shrewd child; could convince a meteorologist
it was spring during the fall, and create tornadoes
in the frigid winter air.

Camouflaged by pretty things that casted shadows on
too many hours of my life, and depraved by Mother

Making Up Words”    by   Sheila

I hold this blackened stone in hand
and offer it to thee

it dangles out of reach,
hangs just like a carrot stick for
which horses do beseech.

I can’t, I shan’t, I won’t, I don’t,
how shall…..Read More

My Date With a Tiger   by   Sheila

I see my naked-self reflected in his eyes
though, I am fully clothed…

It is not a lust kind-of-look, but rather
one of deep longing, like a rumble
caught in the belly of a tiger…..Read More
