Rhyming and poetry have always eluded me as a writer. I lack the gift of brevity. My brother is a poet. He used to do slam poetry in the city and his monologues were powerful, funny, and moving.
My absolute favorite slam poet is Shane Hawley and he is amazing. His entry into the National Poetry Slam, Robot Parts, is actually about sorrow and loss...but you have to see this guy to believe it.
Some other poets I've come across on this blog challenge are:
- Inside My Poem Book by Uma Maheswari Anandane
- Welcome To My World of Poetry (alumni from last year's challenge)
I hope you hop over and visit these fellow bloggers and enjoy their poetry.
Until next time...Go Write!
