At His Wake That Day – A Poetry Reading

 

Today is Sunday Poets.  An opportunity to post a reading – of your original work – to your blog.  An opportunity to hear poets reading their work.  If you care to, link your reading into the comment section.

At His Wake That Day
Sometimes comes the bagpipes sounding
and the rain pounding
and all round the room there looms
the final sadness of good bye.

Sunday Poets – Poetry Readings

Welcome to Sunday Poets – an invitation to read your original poetry.  Go on and put a poetry reading on your blog. Then, if you’d like, link it here in the comments.  Please just link the URL of your reading.

Enjoy the sounds!

Tonight I Felt The Breeze Blow Through
In the twilight moon,
as delicate as a baby’s clipping
and so perfectly transparent,
I watched a spring breeze
and those near redwood trees
we love so much
caress and sway against each other
and the soft pink sky.
Then I turned
to see you smiling.

Sunday Poets Is Now Open To Accept Your Reading and/or For Your Listening Pleasure

A few days ago I posted that, each Sunday during June, I would be hosting poets reading their work.  I’m happy to say,   thanks to some help,  Sunday Poets is now open and ready to accept links from poets reading their own original work.  The link page will accept your link until midnight Sunday,  June 1.

How To Listen and Post:

1) click the frog icon at the bottom of my post.  This takes you to a page with links to poets reading their work.  Listen to readings by clicking on the links.

2) if you would like to link your own reading, put your reading on your blog page. Go to the froggy icon back to the InLinkz page. Scroll down to the bottom of that page and click the “Add your link” button.

3) at the add page paste the URL OF YOUR READING – NOT YOUR MAIN BLOG URL into the first box. At the second box put the title of your reading and your name/blogging name. Third box would be your email. Your  email is confidential and will not be shared.  Click submit.

**If you need assistance, please contact me via a comment.**

Thanks to all listeners and readers for participating.  Even though there may be a few wrinkles to work out at first,  I hope you will enjoy this experience.

Mostly – A Poetry Reading for Sunday Poets

Mostly
She didn’t go to church
that much.
Hell.
She hardly prayed
most days
at all though
sometimes when she prayed
she cried.
She didn’t love everyone
she met at parties, either –
usually.
She did all that though not
that much
and that proved best
for her soul
mostly.
