  1. Glad to discover your poetry – you certainly have a way with words! Thanks for visiting my blog. Look forward to reading more of your works.

  2. So incredibly grateful to meet another Soul passionate for pen and paper, or literally screen and keyboard. :-) I look forward to reading more of your work. May your days be painted in peace and serenity.

  3. I love the pocket change word volume, i don’t read much poetry outside of whats in my Norton 5th edition poetry anthology, but as is the world, so shall be reflected between lines: Quality over quantity.

    Inspiration

    thank you, best wishes.

  4. Hi Kenyatta,

    I was awarded the Liebster Blog Award, and you were one of the five blogs I wished to pass the award along to! You can read more about it on my blog.

    I realize that you were nominated recently and your blog has just passed the 200 follower mark but what can i say man – I enjoy your blog and nominate you – call it poetic licence :)

    Many thanks,

    A.A. Trivedi

    • Thanks for the award but honestly, I don’t even have the time to do my post for 2 Versatile Blogger Awards that I’ve also recently received. But the sentiment is thoroughly appreciated.

  5. Very much enjoyed lurking ’round…photos & poems are most wonderful. Dig how you keep recreating yourself… your nightshift life is something I’ve toyed with trying just to see life in a different light (yes, literally, too). cheers ~

  6. Your writings are really in depth, it’s feels quite mesmerising to me and almost that I’m someplace else reading them. The way the poetry is displayed is lovely also.

    (Thank you for liking one of my posts)

  7. Really like your poetry. It is creative and evolutionary. Rarely do I see people take chances with styles like ee cummings. To me it’s as much about how the eye sees the word as it is about what the words, rhythms, and rhymes mean.

  10. Hello there,
