To Join Us

Welcome poets,

All poets who share their work online are sharing pieces of their soul and deserve to be applauded for opening up to the world in that way. I support poets who blog, will you?

Meet Rax

This poet posts her work at Soul Phantasm, where she weaves poetic verses that are both impressive and haunting. Each one I have read only makes me want to read another.

Why don't you stop by and see the latest compliation poem she has created and see for yourself the unique way she paints a picture with words: Scrying Glass: Disillusioned.

Carnivale Comes to Poets Who Blog

Thank you to every poet who submitted an entry to this carnival. I ask that the other poets listed at this site take some time to check out the following entries and leave your comments. Show your support for the artists below who use the written word to transport, enlighten and enrich the world.

We start off with Soul Phantasm who offers Prayer and The Exorcism, both deeply moving and thought provoking.

Next we have the oldest member of Poets Who Blog, ClockWork Chris with his poem trilogy titled Angel., which are a unique look at seeing the same thing in different viewpoints.

Crimsonflaw , with his extrodinary poetic talent, composed Necromancer, a dark but lovely little piece of work.

Check out the sexily titled blog by Chameleon, Girls Want Porn and the poem Under the Bed

Square Traveler from Views From the Forward Earth shares with us a beautiful creation called Sketches from the Boardwalk

Lisa Chapman from Word for Word wrote 25, a truly moving piece about the joy, the pain, the comfort that can be found in a friendship.

Brian from brief poems offers a short but masterfully written poem called The Sabatoge

A poet with the amusing screen name of extra special bitter asks you to check out this one line poem that takes you into his morning routine.

The hilarious Madeleine Begun Kane, Humorist & Song Parodist gifts us with a limerick called Only In Queens, New York

Tiel Aisha Ansari from Knocking From Inside, a blog I read often, shares her poem called Robert Johnson and the black dog

K. M. Ryanwould like you to read post #127, The Simplicity of Love, a poem that is equally soulful and romantic.

Something Romantic

Every once in a while I stumble upon a poem from one of our poets that really speaks to me. When that happens I like to share the link with all of you.

This poem is enchanting. It gets down to a real level where you can feel an ache pulsating in ever word. Yet it still manages to be romantic and hopeful, at least I found it so.

Let the poet know what you think after you read
