So, September has finally come to an end and so has Whispers Of The Soul- the Poetry series that began on September 2 (on my book blog- Paper Hearts).
So, here are the wonderful poet bloggers who submitted one of their own works and the bloggers who suggested their favourite poems. A huge thank you to each and every one of you for your support and co-operation!
2.Raven from Raven’s Blog & Journal and Stories by Raven wrote a poem titled Travel in the Mind which was about the power of words. Again, another beautiful poem which most of us can relate to! Check it out here.
3. Evin from A Curly Sue’s Ramblings and A Wanderful Life! sent in a sweet poem named One Shine which portrayed a child’s desire to be who he/she wanted to and their willingness to work for it. Another stunning poem! Head over here to read it.
4. Fahimay from A Writer’s Retreat sent in a poem titled The Caged Bird which I sadly couldn’t post because it was the fourth submission. A profound, poignant and powerful poem, this was based on how women are bound by marriage and their lack of freedom. Check it out here.
