Greetings and welcome to Poets on Display during National Poetry Month/Blogging From A to Z April Challenge. I’m doing a poetry theme, so each day this month I feature poets from the book Sunrise Summits: A Poetry Anthology, which was recently selected as a finalist for the 2017 Colorado Book Awards in the anthology category (information about the awards can be found by Clicking Here).
It’s an honor for me to continue to share the work of those who contributed to Northern Colorado Writers first poetry anthology and to have this work selected as an award finalist. The poets included are a shining example of the talent found in Northern Colorado Writers, LLC.
The poem posted below is not from the anthology. This way you get a wider read of each poet’s work. It’s been a challenge to get the poems to fit the letter theme, but I think I’ve worked it out. I hope you enjoy what you read here.
Today’s Poem: Dizain by Eleanore Trupkiewicz
And when the world began to turn
slow on its sated axis wild
and ancient fire anew to burn
‘neath cloudless skies all dark and mild,
then did I stand a wond’ring child
to watch the world all clear and sweet
untrodden by man’s careless feet,
‘ere I looked up and there you stood
such thoughtful beauty God did mete
that all the world seemed new and good.
Eleanore D. Trupkiewicz is an award-winning author and poet whose submission “Poetry by Keats” won the 2013 Writer’s Digest Short Short Story Competition out of more than six thousand entries internationally. Her poems appear in Sunrise Summits: A Poetry Anthology (2016) and Measuring Twine: Poetry With Strings Attached (2012). She writes speculative fiction and freelances as editor and proofreader. Eleanore works with gratitude out of her local Starbucks coffee shop. Find her online at http://refinersfireediting.com
Today is also Insecure Writers Support Group posting day. I’m letting the poetry do the talking this month, so no IWSG post content today. I highly recommend getting in with the group. It’s a great place to hang with writerly types of all genres.
Note: On May 1, 2017 I’ll be drawing one winner to receive a copy of Sunrise Summits: A Poetry Anthology. Each day you visit and leave a comment, you’ll earn one entry for the drawing. (Only one entry per day can be earned, regardless of number of visits/comments) That’s a potential of 30 entries for the drawing! Winner to be announced on this blog on May 1, 2017.
