Woven are these pages in poetic verse, With bare threads of our deepest feelings, You will find laughter, tears and remorse, and words of wisdom, prayer and healings. Krish Radhakrishna The words herein form an anthology of love From the pens of poets from around the world It's a love only possible through God above Creating a bond of friendship freely unfurled. Curtis Moorman The poet mines the cave for treasures sought, Walls encrusted with images from the past. Chipping away at a long forgotten thought, Emerging with gold nuggets at long last. John Watt Metaphors and simile express the fire, that smolder in the bosom of a writer, who only seeks to send to you with fond desire, a verse to make our weary lives much brighter. Janish Thompson Sorrows drip from our pens so poignantly, Elegantly too our joys are expressed, We can even imagine things we cannot see, With imagery, our loveliest thoughts are dressed. Andrea Dietrich Where pen meets paper, the words abound, Words of men and women of every race and creed, No greater conglommerate will there be found, Words which sow seeds that the whole world needs. Curtis Moorman We write for we must, and our words pouring out, can never be stopped, for as our words surge - like rivers to the ocean we flow; without doubt, we are one and the same as together we merge. Andrea Dietrich The entry of Divine words must be first, because they always have the deepest meanings, And they are able to quench our deepest thirst, In spite of all our ailments and other misgivings. Curtis Johnson Such highlight gratitude-assertions today, Rippling with blissful hope for tomorrow, Dispelling woes breathed-out by yesterday, Assuring God’s presence midst blessings’ flow… Beata Agustin Reverberating rhymes of earnest praise** Faith-propped exhortations despite grievous pain; Odes and sonnets exalting triumphant grace Keep driving poetry spirit to reign. Beata Agustin Emerald emotive urge surges in opulence on rhythmic passionate flow of poems. Earnest yearning rippling on relevance. Verses shining, glowing, sparkling like gems. Anisha Dutta Sentiment, sapience, and vehemence, aroma of dormant dreams in rapture on charming display of sensuous sentence projecting past, present and future. Anisha Dutta Poets polish leather letters with feather fingers, Every word wild like the waves of the ocean, Passionate paragraphs parade with clingers, Full moon highlights heights of heavenly motion. Chantelle Anne Cooke Misty movement that marks the poem’s destiny Gossamer souls swim interweaving with words Watercolor waterfalls wisp magic into eternity For poetry forever seasons its forest of birds Chantelle Anne Cooke Deep in this poignancy you may immerse That humiliation you are concealing, Grief and joy both may be the source To which self-expression is appealing. Beth Evans If words were gold coins in a silken purse, We would seek their worth in our dealings, And we would wish to have recourse To those gifts of verse they are revealing. Beth Evans Slander blossoms, having no real root; critics water down truth with vexation. Taking issue with points that are moot they harvest lies and fabrication. Reason A Poteet Letting us live life in situations so diverse bestow tranquility under unsure reelings each moment felt, understood, of course on path of faith, gratitude and kneelings. Mohan Chutani Tapestry of textures, rough and smooth entwined, Interlacing suffering and joy, Satin strands of blessing lovingly designed Tangled knots attempting to destroy. Wendy Watson Paths are set before us, history unfurled, Warnings and instruction to be heard, Faith and hope encouraged in a fickle world, Treasure to unlock within the word. Wendy Watson Take the wisdom and guidance from these pages Take each and every single word to heart. Trust and follow where the wisdom leads you This knowledge is now for you to impart. Mary Taylor
