Thanks so much to “Thoughts from a Jaded Heart” http://jadedstone11.wordpress.com/ for passing this award to pointsthruprose. I look forward to a new post from this great writer and I just about get one on a daily basis. Thanks Jaded Heart for your profound and relevant writing and thanks for appreciating and following my blog.
The rules for this award are as follows:
- Share something about myself that other bloggers don’t know
- Link 7 posts from my blog that I feel are worthy
- Nominate 7 other bloggers who I feel deserve the award and haven’t yet received it
- “Good Morning World”, by Joanna Hyde http://pointsthruprose.com/2011/10/27/good-morning-world/ I was back and forth between this poem and “The Self Organizing Galaxy”. Both are brilliant and BIG. Good Morning World was Joanna’s first post on the blog and it is a very relevant poem that I feel the whole world needs to read – over and over again.
- “When they Closed the Gate”, by O.G. Hawkins http://pointsthruprose.com/2011/11/10/when-they-closed-the-gate/ This guy has so many great poems and such a unique writing style, but this particular piece resonates with me on the confinement that we all experience in this crazy controlled world.
- “Being with Experience”, by Carol Lefevre http://pointsthruprose.com/2011/11/30/being-with-experience/ It was tough trying to decide which tree of Carol’s I am in love with the most. Carol has the ability to paint trees like I have never seen before. I find this particular painting to be erotic and exuding with feminine energy.
- ‘Snake Dance”, by Kristine Zoodedo http://pointsthruprose.com/2011/12/05/snake-dance/ Now this is a million dollar painting! It is one of those paintings that changes every time I look at it and I have to look at it often. Again, it was tough to choose a favourite here as all of Kristine’s Art is so intricate, fun and profound – Do these words go together?
- ‘I WAS BECOMING WHAT I WAS FIGHTING, BUT NOT FIGHTING WHAT I WAS BECOMING”, by Murdoch McSween http://pointsthruprose.com/2011/12/15/i-was-becoming-what-i-was-fighting-but-not-fighting-what-i-was-becoming/ I chose this one, not because it was written by my 12 year old son, but because the title alone keeps me on my toes. I am a very fortunate Mother to have such an insightful boy.
- Thom Olsen, http://pointsthruprose.com/category/thom-olsen/ one of the most profound biographies I have ever read. I am determined to learn the secret of a sonnet through his beautiful writings.
- “I Awake”, by Jackie Blair McSween http://pointsthruprose.com/2011/12/08/i-awake/ One of the first poems I ever wrote (three years ago) This poem proved to me that if you study the technical then leave it alone and write in prose then the technical will just show up while the profound message remains.
