featured poets
at my heart’s love songs

Beez  Laine
aka  @beezknez

i’m still celebrating the fifth anniversary of  my heart’s love songs  and,  in April,  {inter}National Poetry Month.   i thought it would be fitting to rerun the 2012 featured poet series  which spotlights sixty of  the most creative,  talented,  brilliant  {really!}  poets of  our time.  i have been fortunate over the five 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.  i will be putting up these posts throughout the month of  April  (and probably into May)  to reacquaint you with old friends and introduce you to new ones.

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 the celebration ~  enjoy!

Dream .. I Am…     by   Beezknez

Touched by the misty mornings light
kisses whispered across my blue eyes
with surprise I am looking out of myself
looking down at me in my dream

I am the sky
looking now into my eyes
white clouds drift on by
An extraordinary…..Read More

A Strange Affair ~ Depression    by   Beezknez

The kiss
of promise
to always be
the quiet of me
Loneliness
like cold death
Oh Jealous Lover
it has always been you

The sadness of a cross
lays like

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

Ode To The Fallen Stars  (the social outcasts)    by   Beezknez

the best part of the fall is the getting back up in life.
N we can
Live life each day till it makes you breathless
Fly with all your arms n legs … Let your whole being feel every breath of breeze Jump
your body with the mind thought of a feather n skip rope with the wind
N don’t let yourself be blinkered by those in a race
Trust your own thoughts Your instinct n allow your own voice to see your words and
embrace them. These are your songs like no others.
You don’t need gang mind mentality to see your voice speaks.
You only need Love n the only blinkers you ever need in this life is Trust.
If those in your life are honest In their love you don’t need to see them catch you If you fall
The trust will see you through the falls throughout your life.
Love n Trust r the best friends you could ever have.
I You Me Us Them
seem like…..Read More

One response to “featured poets ~ Beez Laine @beezknez + #giveaway

    Love all the celebration of National Poetry Month, so please accept this poem by John Siddique as a gift for the event.
    Thirst.
    Imagine thirst without knowing water.
    And you ask me what freedom means.
    Imagine love without love.

    Some things are unthinkable,
    until one day the unthinkable is here.
    Imagine thirst without knowing water.

    Some things we assume just are as they are,
    no action is taken to make or sustain them.
    Imagine love without love.

    It is fear that eats the heart: fear and
    endless talk, and not risking a step.
    Imagine thirst without knowing water.

    Fold away your beautiful thoughts.
    Talk away curiosity, chatter away truth.
    Imagine love without love.

    Imagine believing in the whispers,
    the screams and the gossip. Dancing to a tune
    with no song to sing inside you.
    Imagine love without love

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