Walking Alone

Walking alone by the roadside, I meander…

Remnant

A very special poem from my poetry collection Journey On: Beauty And Grit Along the Way. It was one of those poems that came to me so easily…I love when writing a poem can actually be almost effortless. This one was: Remnant You found…

I am greeting September with a quiet poem for my readers. The bustle of summer is now past. Here in Colorado our mornings begin with chilled autumn like temperatures. Spots of orange are appearing on the scrub oak and the aspens are tinged with…

Why I Write Poetry

August 8, 2014 by annablakegodbout        I am often asked why I have chosen to write poems instead of novels, short stories and essays in my writer’s life. My answer is not a complicated one: Because I want to. Because it lets me…

Giving the Beach Back to the Tourists

August brings forth the winding down of summer days and nights. Soon Nature’s landscape will begin slow quiet changes often without notice. Before the calendar rolls in September, I give you a poem of quiet summer reflection. A moment in time when evening settles…

Journey On

It’s time to become acquainted with a new season and embrace a limitless horizon, vast and mysterious. No longer desiring to be held back, a long silence stirs awake. My life map unfolds; a new journey begins… revealing new dreams with the same heart….

Late Afternoon in Early Winter The wood stove fire burns slowly, warmth seeps into ridges of a red fleece blanket that adorns my shivering shoulders. Outside the snow softly falls, swirls of silver and white cover autumn into bare branched silence. North winds howl,…

Beach Harvest

A warm morning on the beach; the sunrise bellows tangerine and lavender where sea and sky become one. I walk in sand-silenced footsteps along the shoreline with a gathering bucket in hand, listening to breakers crash and the cry of gulls. Above pelicans swoop…

Deep Winter, Now Gone

It is the first day of National Poetry Month and this blog is declared to be officially open or perhaps I should say “re-open”.  Blog posts have not been made for quite sometime and what a perfect time to re-open Journey On to readers! …

Writing what I experience-not what I know…exactly

I write free verse only; I am partial to the flow of eloquent and rich language. I cannot rhyme or do metered poetry or sonnets-it reminds me of teaching language arts daily to my students at school.  I do not care for writing prompts…

Vox Populi

A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
