Lynda  Goldstein

i’m still celebrating the fifth anniversary of  my heart’s love songs and i decided 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  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!

Why I Must
 Stay, That Is

by   lyndagrace

My sign is Cancer,  I like to stay
  inside my shell, that is.
I wonder why I can’t go away
  away from home, that is.
 
I seem to always want to go
  back, that is.
By that I mean that I don’t like to stay
  away, that is.
 
Once it was too scary
  to be away, that is.
I had to stay
for my mother, sister and brother, that is…..Read More
