ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Welcome to my blog of poetry. I began my blogging of poetry in 2010, and since then , I had acquired over 400 written poems, and as well a talented group of followers. I removed about 380 pieces of poetry, and left only a small selection of some recent poems written. The reason behind my actions were caused by the many uncertainties of grammatical errors, and revisions necessary to my crafts potential. I thank all of the bloggers who have followed me, and I appreciate sincerely your dedicated time for reading my material. There is no greater service, than to dedicate ones’ time to another, and all of you are appreciated. Again, thank you for stopping by, and welcome. Below are some following words on the scope of my work, and also, my views on comments.

 

A Word on my Poetry:

IMG_0755 I cover many topics such as: love, hardships, relationships, hate, religion, and philosophy; of course, due to removing the bulk of my titles, there may be no longer any pertaining to some of the subjects above. I dedicate more time to my fiction, but I prize poetry as my primary tool for writing. Poetry is the expression of all life’s thoughts, and truths, it mirrors the authors interpretations of life’s dilemmas, perspective, and empathy. The greatest of poems are not subjected to hours, days, or years of thought; rather, they are subjected to one moment of true insight, tailored by the emotional response of the author’s need to channel his, or her abilities to interpret the very meaning of their insight. The greatest truths can be found inside the pages of poetry, philosophy, and fiction, for they are a means of revealing truths, in such a manner to liberate the authors of repercussions. Do not have mercy on the writer, because he or she will have no mercy in their abilities as a wordsmith to create verses of powerful wordplay intended to strike the chords of the readers’ own emotions.

A Word on Comments:

As a blogger, I realize the importance of reading a fellow bloggers work, but not only reading their work, or “liking” it, but also, commenting on it. When I read another writer’s work, I will always post a comment in relation to the writer’s works’ impression to me as the reader. Some might argue and say, “well, how is one to maintain hundreds of readers, and their comments, or works of art?” Then might I add, “don’t bother commenting, nor liking a bloggers work.” I find it more insulting for one to simply click (Like) without even observing the material rather than for one to simply avoid the work until there is time to do so.


 Quotes:

“A poem cannot be right, nor wrong, it can only be perceived as it is by the reader as a justification, or explanation of the readers particular experience in accordance to the nature of its’ interpretation” – WB

  4. in each human spirit there is a story
    that craves a canvas….fingers hold the
    brushes that will create a master piece
    thoughts that flow from the heart over mind have the most
    incredible colors to form words into a work of art…
    you have quite a canvas here…I enjoy the flow of energy
    that takes shape in your art….
    Take Care…

  5. I read one poem, n’ i’ll agree with the others. You write with such an impressive power of words that show your excellence in writing.

  6. The following sentence you wrote truly captures me:

    The greatest of poems are not subjected to hours, days, or years of thought; rather, they are subjected to one moment of true insight, tailored by the emotional response of the author’s need to channel his, or her abilities to interpret the very meaning of their insight.

    I sometimes write seemingly conflicting poems within minutes of each other. My emotions run rampant often. What you wrote makes me feel understood. I don’t know how you found my blog, but I am so glad I have found yours. I find your words striking.

  7. When I was nominated for an award today and asked to renominate…you were right at the top of my mind. Please have a look…I hope you will accept it as you have earned it.
