Lovely Sunday surprise...

I am totally chuffed that Khaled at Khaled KEM has showcased a new 'Untitled' poem that I posted on my site (although revised) on his blog. He is a gifted poet and one of his recent poems 'I love you' is a favourite of mine. But this month due to his graduate study commitments he has decided in his own words to: “...Since April is National Poetry month here's my plan: I will post daily a poem, from the most well known of poets to the newest and freshest of poets, as well as selected poetry of my friends...”. A poem I’ve thoroughly enjoyed from his April showcase is 'Home Street' by Gary Hyland. Do visit his blog and have a browse through an eclectic selection of his own poems and those of many others. Hope you enjoy the read!

Happy Easter Sunday!

Hi Catherine,

Thanks for the kind words you wrote about me, my blog, and my poetry.

I always consider poetry a unique language that can say a lot about life, people, places, etc... with the best of words.

I hope that you keep writing poems as you definitely have a unique voice and it's always nice to share your thoughts.

Happy Easter!

PS I did not forget about the Arabic literature and I will send you soon a list of the best I read.

@Melissa: Thank you...

@Khaled: You are very welcome. And thank you for your encouraging comments on my poetry – I am not a confident poet so your words give me the impetus to keep [wrestling] with my poetic voice and form UNTIL I FIND IT (lol)!

@ Emi & Christopher Raun Leth & Printemps & Chuck Dilmore: WELCOME to my blogspace and thank you for your following. I look forward to staying connected with your blogs too!

Well done Cath,
Yes, keep wrestling until the confidence comes out. As for your writings, you are certainly gifted and have your own creative style. One thing I most appreciate, and I've said as such before, is the inspirational nature you exude which touches and moves all readers in one way or another.

Love always & have a pleasant Easter season,
Lil

Catherine - I hope you had a wonderful Easter! The poem posted on Khaled's blog is quite fine. I thought it most beautiful when you posted it here: sublte, short, but very relevant and powerful. It says much.
