TO ALL LIFE’S CREATION on Earth Day

eyes untamed

yet full of love

each step

sheer poetry in motion

we walk the same sand

you and I

share the same sky

then why should one be

lesser than the other?

~to all life’s creation on

There are so many ways in which we can help reduce our negative impact on the earth. Little things like reducing wastage of resources, to plantation drives, to helping animals in distress…every action counts. No contribution is too small. And if we can do nothing else, we can at least use our pen to increase awareness. Let’s do our bit for this awesome planet.

Celebrating Poets – Christopher Seiffert

In the rough and tumble of life, there are always some bright spots that fill our souls with gladness. Poetry is one such blessing that brings beauty into our lives.

Today, I choose a poet who is one such beautiful person… someone whose words are always a pleasure to read. Though I haven’t been too much in touch with his poetry these days, life just gets too busy at times and days not long enough to do everything one wishes for, I keep visiting his page whenever I get a chance. His poetry calls out, and that pull cannot be ignored.

Christopher Seiffert… perhaps better known as Lion In The Stars… you can find his work on Instagram, Twitter and his website.

The poem of choice for today is something that would make you look forward to the blessings of a new day. Do visit his pages and let him know you appreciate his work by saying a few words to him here.

{Caption Piece} . . Pain filled soliloquies Reflections of intentions Meant to destroy my dreams The damage of internal dialogue Now gone with a simple feeling The words of hate, erased Nothing but Love fills this space Between my heart and mind As my soul overflows with gratitude Leaving the past behind Blessings of a new day @lion.in.the.stars . . Each day is a clean slate. A new chance to grow and step closer to the life you were born to live. Let go of the self-doubt. It truly is beneath you. Shine your light bright in the sky and let others know it’s ok to shine too ✨✨✨ . .

Celebrating Poets – I SEE THE STARS IN YOU (a tribute to poets of Google Plus)

A very Happy Easter to you all! May the Risen Lord bring many blessings, peace and joy in your life.

Are enjoying your egg hunt? Hey! I’m a good egg too… and poetic as well… I hope someone is looking for me 😜

Happy Easter Day!

This day is blessed and very special, so I decided to dedicate today to all the poets who were my friends, and inspiration when I first came online with a blog called A Gypsy At Heart. It was not a poetry blog but more of inspirational and motivational write-ups with a couple of poems thrown in at times. Slowly, I began to build up a following on Google plus, and came into contact with some wonderful poets… it was perhaps destiny that I eventually began to write poetry as the chosen way of spilling my soul. That blog is still online to read though I do not add to it anymore.

I have come a long way from that day in the last week of April 2014 when I became Manic Sylph to send my first words out into the online world, and I am grateful and indebted to all those wonderful people who taught me so much, who stood by me in good times and bad, and many became lifelong friends.

Alas, with the end of Google Plus on 2nd April, as one of my favourite people on G+ put it, an era came to an end. Many of those poets have gone on to various other social networks, but the beautiful circle has been broken and there are many who have chosen to bow out without a trace. I dedicate today’s post on Celebrating Poets to all those awesome dream weavers and rhyme makers who make the world a better place just by being in it.

For today… a poem that I wrote for my best friend on G+ that I now dedicate to all the poets of Google Plus. I hope you enjoy this old one. This is not my best effort but has a lot of beautiful memories attached to it. I send all my best wishes to them, wherever they are…

Celebrating Poets – Erin Hanson

One for the weekend…

This is a poet I discovered a couple of years ago, and I instantly fell in love with this young girl’s writing. The freshness of her thought and her lyrical poetry fascinates me.

Erin Hanson, also known as e.h can be found at her blog “The Poetic Underground“, her facebook page and Instagram

Enjoy my choice for today and have a wonderful weekend!

KISSES

I feel the kiss of the wind
In my hair
Playfully, a heart laid bare

Celebrating Poets – J K Salmon

“One should always be drunk. That’s all that matters…But with what? With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you chose. But get drunk.” —Charles Baudelaire

Ah! Well, poetry is my chosen poison… so let me make my choice for today.

J K Salmon… or perhaps, you know him better as NorthPoet. A romantic, a dreamer and a poetry maker, his work is like a fairy tale, something I keep going back to again and again. You can reach him on his Twitter page or buy his books on Amazon.

Today, I bring to you his poem Immortal Roses… enjoy his work!

Celebrating Poets – Janey M

Hi dear friends!

Thank you very much for showing your love to these awesome poets this Poetry Month. Do tell me about your favourite poets too, let’s share the love forward and let poetry claim our souls! I am keeping my eyes peeled for your comments…

Some people are just perfect! And so is this poet who writes as beautifully as she presents her posts. It is easy to fall in love with her words. There’s so much to read on her page, but because I have to choose only one, I chose this treasure from her collection.

We have all heard broken is beautiful…but I have yet to see it being written so beautifully!!

Janey M…meet her on her Instagram page and let her poetry flow over you…
