August – Heart Poem


Feature Poem for August


This month’s feature poet is Steph, from the blog, Stories and Things Like That.  I really like the repetition Steph uses in this poem and how the shape reinforces and emphasizes the touching memories of a loved one.





Blogger Submissions for August


The prompt in August was to write a poem or format a poem with a Heart theme.

We had some wonderful interpretations of this theme, so please do hop around and check them all out.

  • Hesterleynel  writes in both Afrikaans and English, which is no easy feat and cleverly uses a heart format to communicate her words.



  • Ju- Lyn writes an exquisite Somonka.  Just as two souls are intwined in love, Ju-Lyn has intwined Two Tanka poems about the power of Love.


  • Yvette at delights us with eye -pleasing photographs  and a fun heart shaped format to accompany her writing.


  • Ineke at  scrapydo2 writes a touching poem about love, loss and forgiveness

    (Insert into Google translate for English)


  • Amanda  aused a heart graphic and rhyme to enhance this love poem here


  • Mammasquirrel presents a poem honoring her faith and love of the Divine.


  • Manja writes a poetic story of love, separation, and what’s more, it comes beautifully illustrated  with photographs.


  • Tafazul writes with honesty and directness in his poem for August.



Please let me know if you submitted a poem during August, and the link is not listed here.

Sometimes pingbacks do not work as they should.
