Poets Consortium Two – An Introduction
Rosyln’s poetry gets deep into blood,
a flowing stream, breathing life
into a reader’s soul.
In her studio, Annell becomes artist’s
instrument tearing emotions (one at a time)
from the flesh of her own story.
With intensely focused aim, Misky’s
inner code is revealed in written words
that tickle inner ear and are long remembered.
Jules’ poetic gifts are a rich and secret
fortune she freely shares in hard-worked
haibun and haiku.
In purely poetic petition, Marian
has been known to address deep needs
of ignorant and innocent alike.
Moved by silent hope, Elizabeth desires
only to subdue thundering cacophony
of breath lines inside her head.
Not fickle-hearted, Benjamin’s signature
stroke is an inky brand he wields
within poetry shack he calls home.
Grace’s sweet poetic breath might
send a responsive shiver down
backbone of any recipient.
Like the pattern in a nautilus shell,
Nicole’s words keep a coiled afterlife
beneath the sternum of her followers.
No rust grows on Hannah’s pen,
her poetic plumes are coherently
The goddess Irene inhabits a fecund
delta of glistening pearl-like poems
where orange is a succulent fruit.
The aperture of Ms. Pie’s poetry paradise
is entwined with the heady blossoms
of marriage between sense and sound.

Notes: Again, I was tempted to continue using the poets’ names along with their words. The verses are intended to show my sense of the poetry community and what I find there.
This image has always carried my personal sense of the that community. It is from the soul cards that were created by Deborah Koff-Chapin and may be found at her site, here: http://www.touchdrawing.com/
