Poetry Shout-outs! (Part 2)

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!

Poem Submissions:

1.Maggie from Chicadee Lover Maggie sent in a lovely poem titled Kindness which was absolutely poignant and conveyed a great message. You can read it here.

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.

Poetry Series! (Closed)

I am so excited to let you all know that I’m starting a second series on Paper Hearts, my book blog!

Titled, ‘Whispers of the Soul‘ because Poetry comes from deep within, this is a month long series which will begin on September 2 and end on September 30. I’ll post one of my favourite poems every Wednesday along with a short interpretation and review.

The best part is that you get to participate too!! Comment down one of your favourite poems and I’d love to write a short review. You’ll also receive a shout-out in the respective post and at the end of the month! I’ll post your suggested poems every Monday and Saturday (depending on the number of poems I receive). Please note that, the poems should not be too long as I’ll be including it in the post and romantic poems will not be considered.

For the final surprise, on Sep 21, Sep 24, and Sep 28, I’ll be publishing a poem one of you wrote! (Closed as I’ve received 4 submissions. Thank you so much for your constant support!!) Something similar to guest posting. Please note you’ll have to provide a short description of what you want your poem to convey along with the submission of your poem. If you would like to submit a poem, please head over to my Contact page to get in touch! Only the first three entries would be considered as I don’t like judging or choosing over any one’s works. If I do receive more than three poems, everyone who sends one will receive a shout out at the end of the month!

Please do participate!
