PWB Poetry Collection- September

This is the fourth month of this feature at PWB.

The idea is to list twenty poems, from different bloggers on our blogroll, that I have found enjoyable.They are not listed in any particular order. Do not submit poems to me for this feature.

Please check out some of these poems and leave comments. If there is a positive response then I will continue this next month. It takes about two hours to compile this list so please, if you have time, take a moment to stop in to some of the blogs listed below.

Thank you for supporting PWB and making it a wonderful haven for poets in the blogosphere.

Hi, Sara,
Did this post mis-fire? I don't see the list.

Sara said...

I set it up ahead of time but didn't get a chance to find the poems. I'll post it soon.

Thank you again Sara for all your work and for chosing my haiku, also thanks to every reader. Cannot access Blogger from my own browser at the moment, and will have to wait till problem is resolved to read you all.

lissa said...

I like the idea of featuring poets' work since I don't always visit everyone on the blogroll here as it is becoming longer

thanks Sara, for including me on the list and also thanks for keeping this site updated and encouraging writers with your devotion to this site and to poetry

Excellent work Sara! I have read so many wonderful pieces. This blog has saved me so much gasoline, as I really don't have to go to the library as much.

Thank you.

Sara said...

It would be great if each reader here would comment on at least one poem. We are doing a huge project here next month that aims to spotlight poetry blogs. I really pray some people will take the take to visit the sites I suggest, so it does not all end up wasted effort.

Angelica said...

As usual, you picked some great and interesting pieces.

Thanks for featuring my poem, too.

C. Elizabeth said...

Beautiful collection. Thanks for the inclusion!

Hi, Sara,
The work you do to aid poets is extraordinary. Like making this list, among so many other things.
Thank you.
You found one great poem with the Crafty Green Poet's "Poison". People should check it out.

Wanted to say that your resource is a wonderful outlet for poets, and that September's collection is diverse and beautiful. I can appreciate the difficulty in choosing a poem; my hat's off to your tenacity and love of poetry.

Thank you.

I do not comment unless I have something to say. Don't think that means I don't read a lot, though.

I really haven't had hardly any time to do anything, though.

I work full time and go to school full time, so I'm busy constantly now.

Sara said...

Noah, its great to hear from you. I love reading your stuff. I've been busy than usual for the last six months myself. Keep trying to really get in the swing of things again but its hard. Hopefully I can before the holidays come and then wipe out all my extra time.

Anyway, glad you could be part of this month's collective. I always can count on your blog, among a few others, to provide a poem I can use, which is helpful to me cause I need to cut down on the time it takes to search for poems. It great to know I won't have any trouble finding one at your blog.

Hi Sara

Loved this idea- and I loved the poetry you highlighted too-

I have linked to three of these poems for October on my site www.poetrydances.com

Again great site, wish you well.

Tony.

Thanks so much for including my poem, 'Broken Body, Shattered Mind' I am very honored. Sorry it took me so long to reply as I have been very ill. I will check out the other poems as soon as I'm able. I hope everyone at Poets Who Blog are (is?) doing well. Thanks again!
