Hey! Do you know how difficult it is to choose between drops of sunshine, and then you have to pick only one per day…
Well, I made my rules, and I will have to adhere to them I guess, so I will slowly get to all my favourite poets, one at a time, in a random order.
Today, I choose Joe Barca, perhaps better known as Shepherdmoon to the Twitterati, one who has gems scattered all over his page and we all love him.
It is impossible to choose just one of his poems from a million, so I took one from the latest lot. You can visit him on Twitter, or Instagram or buy his books on Amazon. Meanwhile, here’s something that all poets will relate to.
I want to write poetry the way that flowers bloom – softly, slowly – where the emergence of beauty is almost imperceptible.
And then you are startled.
