In my supportive blogger poems One and Two.

Pay close attention you don’t wanna’ miss a thing.

There are so many more and I can’t go on forever,

So if I miss you, I’m sorry, for I’m really squeezing this together!

Cayman Drinks Well With Others, he’s one of a kind,

It’s great to find bloggers with such like mind.

Kristi’s blog is mighty fine,

She loves great books, YA and Wine.

If you want well rounded books then check this out,

Maria’s Library has what you want, of that there’s no doubt.

Pirate Patty is such a delight,

When it comes to Books Books and More Books shes always right!

Giorgiana is a book expert with reviews galore,

Awesome Books Today offers so much more.

Cherylann’s a big supporter and in book world she thrives,

I love every promo and tittle over at Book Addict Live.

Thank you dear bloggers for reading my crap,

You’ve all turned me into a cry baby sap.

I know that there’s more, and I can’t get every one,

But writing these poems have been oh so much fun.

For those that I’ve somehow managed to skip over.

I’ll do this again someday, and I promise to look closer.

Supportive Bloggers, 2nd Poem

I’ve created a beast now it’s time to keep feeding it,

As the first bloggers poem I wrote is still getting hits.

With a hundred fifty views and counting my gratitude grows,

If you could see my face for real, I’m confident it shows.

I’ll start with Jo-Ann and her love of creativity,

She’s positive, uplifting, and so great to me!

Our shared love of books makes me sniffle and sigh,

If you look for well rounded you’ll find it at Inspiration Pie.

Stephanie has the most impeccable liking,

If there is a great YA book out there, she’ll hunt it down like a Viking.

The adventure in this blog is jam packed, a precious vault,

To find a young readers quality, stick with Teacher Of YA.

I can’t go on any farther without throwing Danny in,

If you’re one of his thousands of followers then you’re in for the win.

His posts are inspirational and so very supportive,

If you want a touch of the heart then go now to Dream Big.

I have one more today and Susan is her name,

Or you can call her the twitter dominator, its all the same.

To find the best book reviews, you can never go wrong,

By checking first at Books From Dusk Till Dawn.

The scratching of surface has still only just begun,

Hang tight for poem three, more praises will be sung.

Supportive Bloggers, 1st poem

Blogging is a fickle thing,

It makes you laugh, it makes you think.

There are some that I follow who shine above,

So now it’s time to return the love.

James J Cudney you’re at the top of my list,

I don’t have a single post that you’ve missed.

With enough awards and tags to make a weak blogger bow,

You could say I’m a big fan of ‘This Is My Truth Now.’

Kim could be the kindest blogger I know,

Great things are coming your way if its true, you reap what you sow.

You’re bookish intelligent, and WordPress you’ve shook,

One of my most loved reviewers is By Hook Or By Book.

Felicia Denise you’re so on the ball,

From writing to romance, you deliver it all.

Your site is professional with a beautiful face,

I cherish every like and comment from Nessie’s Place.

Karen is sweet and that’s not to mention,

Everything she writes is with care and intention.

Her words are arguably richer than all of the rest,

If you don’t believe me, go ahead… Put Pen & Paper to the test.

Now just for today I’ve only mentioned four,

But don’t you worry there are much much more.

There are so many to mention so please stay tuned,

Your name could pop up here very soon.

Poem: Sharks, Shysters, Publishing Waste. #indiauthor

Sharks shyster publishing waste,

You hide in shallows, just waiting to taste.

A writer’s blood is sweet and delicious,

When the moment is right you sink your teeth in, you’re vicious.

It’s my very first book, like a virgin I’m new,

But I hold my words sacred, I’m watching for you!

I study, I watch, I compare, and I query,

Excitement is contained until I’m tired and weary.

But don’t you worry my fine tuned sweet piece of writing,

This tired mind of mine wont give up, ’cause you’re something worth fighting.

I’ll avoid the sneaky publishers, the shallow swarming beasts,

I’ll do great by you I promise, you wont be disappointed in the least.

Love your toddler #poem

Slow down mommy, hold my hand.

Hug me now, while you still can.

I’m growing fast, with each new day.

Very soon I’ll push you away.

I’ll do everything on my own, and that’s not to mention,

I won’t want your kisses, your help, or attention.

Love and play with me now while I want you to.

And, please keep you’re patience, I’m only two.

 

 

Photo Prompt #darkpoetry

Outside, the air is beautiful and clear,

But, sadly its so much different in here.

Everything around me is dusty and stale,

This cabin a prison, my personal hell.

I plead and I scream but help doesn’t come.

By shackles I’m bound, I can’t even run.

He dragged me so easily, limp with pills.

To this solitary cabin way out in the hills.

The only door locked and the windows quickly boarded,

My thirst trumps the hunger leaving my vision contorted.

I feel my life slowly fade from limb to limb.

My soul now and forever angrily waits here for him.

This is the first time I’ve ever participated in a photo prompt! Something about this cabin just felt so creepy I couldn’t pass it up! Thanks All About Writing And More  blog, for providing such a great photo!

(P.s.  I blogged this from my phone, so don’t judge me for the poem length. Or lack of, I guess I should say. Afterall, it’s about the motion in the ocean, not the size of the boat… right? 😂…)

Poem: Intuition

If it feels right, there’s a reason,

We are human after all.

All energy’s insightful,

Even if it seems small.

So, listen to that buzz,

The tale-tale taps from your soul.

It’s a little thing called intuition,

And, it makes us humans whole.

Poetry book review: The Blue Book, by W. D. Jefferson 4.5 of 5 stars

MY REVIEW:

The poems in The Blue Book are so overwhelmingly depressing that it makes the whole thing just feel completely REAL. It’s centered around women who have been wronged in relationships, and are raising children in dicey situations. I had a hard time relating to many of the poems personally as I have been blessed in my life to be lucky in love. In my opinion, this actually had an equally as powerful effect on me as it would have had I ever under gone abuse(physically, mentally, and/or emotionally). Here is how:

The poems in the book pointed out the realities of some women’s lives. It was a reminder that not everyone has it as good as myself, some have to go about their days in a very dark and ugly place. For me, The Blue Book was a big fat slap in the face in regards to how cruel life (and people) can actually be. It also reminded me it’s time for me to stop being a whiny little baby and start appreciating what I have.

On many levels I don’t feel like this book is for everyone. I don’t think some could handle such harsh reality. If you don’t have an open heart and open mind then you can’t understand and appreciate the message.. That being said, I feel like there are so many women out there that actually NEED this book of poetry. Women like myself need a reminder of what we do actually have and blessed we are. Women who can relate on a more personal level with some of the poems in this book need to allow themselves to feel the emotions in order to heal and move on from difficult situations in life… This poetry is very bitter sweet.

In my opinion, the best poetry isn’t supposed to be all flowers and love, it’s supposed to draw out reality and strong emotion. The Blue Book did exactly that. It’s flawed to perfection, and just harsh enough in reality to leave a lasting impression.

Kudos W. D. Jefferson. I will definitely be reading more of your work!

 

DESCRIPTION:

If your looking for a loving, hopeful compilation of poetry, this is not it. This book is simply about the feelings and emotions inside of you, that are anything but pink, warm or fuzzy….they are bad decisions…they are regrets….they are dark…they are betrayed….they are angry..they are confused..they are my sins and transgressions…..passionate..explicit….street talking…in love still….sometimes sexual..life ending….and they are blue.

You will also get some unexpected gifts within this book….a song playlist….art..poetic art….and a non-traditional setup…Experience my only wish…to love….and then….feel my pain!

Poetry Review: Inside A Poet’s Cage, by Brad Mcnerney

MY REVIEW:

5 OF 5 STARS

WOW!  I’m completely blown away by this short 35 piece collection of  poetry! Talk about reaching inside my chest and wrapping its arms around my soul in a much needed hug of emotion! Brad Mcnerney is a very talented poet!  To say that my heart strings have been pulled would be an understatement.

For the most part, I’m personally hit and miss with poetry. Sometimes I love it, sometimes I don’t. More often than not, the reasoning behind my mixed emotions is due to a struggle of understanding.  Call me simple, I won’t hold it against anyone. The reason I’m explaining my feelings of poetry in a review, is because with this collection in particular I was actually able to grasp every single poem! They’re deep, complex, and emotional (as the very best of the best are) yet I was still able to comprehend the entire collection. Which in my opinion made the book a breath of fresh air!

Kudos Brad Mcnerney.  This is a book of poetry that shouldn’t be passed over.  I definitely recommend it to any and everyone!  I devoured the entire thing, cover to cover, in one sitting. Great read!

DESCRIPTION/SAMPLE POEM:

Inside A Poet’s Cage is a collection of 35 poems about love, romance, self discovery, and a world of dark emotions.

Sample Poem

Invincible Fire

I’m in love with your drive, ambition, and inner spirit.
You seem to ignite the world around you and far away I can hear it.
You are sensitive, kind, loving, but yet strong.
You seem to have an invincible fire that lives on.

I’m in love with your center, your core, the essence of who you are.
Our love can be what we want it to be so let’s leave it in the shadows of the stars.
You seem to give me what I need,
Nothing has to change let’s leave it be.

I’m in love with your magic, happiness and even your tears.
I embrace your world, even the clouds behind your fears.
You are alluring, sweet, caring, and there is an uplifting melody in your song.
You seem to have an invincible fire that lives on.
