National Poetry Month

Every since 1996 poets from around the globe have spent the month of April celebrating this craft that we love.

In honor of NPM I ask that you leave a comment telling your fellow poets who blog the name of your favorite poem. Leave a link if you can.

Happy National Poetry Month to one and all. Spread the word about this site, this holiday, and all poets who blog by linking to this post on your own blog.

Your Blog Manager,

Meet Rethabile Masilo

Dive into the work of Rethabile Masilo by stopping by Sotho or Poefrika, the latter is a group blog that focuses on poetry that is African inspired.

You can feel the intense connection to that country in every word written on those sites. The energy of that place and her people come through the lines of the poems and grip the reader.

A standout among the poems I read by this poet is
maseru street in the sixties.

When you read that piece you are in the place it describes, breathing that air, living that life. You are transported and left feeling the ache of legacy that can never be forgetten.

Check out this talented poet that I am proud to have in our community of poets who blog.

Second Group Poem

Add a line to this poem. I will link to your blog, in this post, to give you credit for the line.

Reverberations by PWB poets

Like a drunk breaks glass, you

this frozen lake for her swan coloured

muzzling the angelic sound she belted out
past mountain pass and winter’s heart.

Turbulent sediment churns amidst her broken dreams.
Her soul lies naked in wanting.

You collect this yearning, a messenger of her silence,
in her sigh, immeasurable in depth and seemily endless.

The poets who wrote this, in the order their line appears,

Clockwork Chris
