We all know about reblogging, right. We read something we really like and we reblog onto our sites for others to see the work and get a chance to know the writer. As most of you will also know, I like to post the works of many different poets from all eras under my regular spot ‘My Special Guest…’.
Well last year I was toying with extending the idea to some of the bloggers out there that had become well known to me. An idea that never came to fruition due to many reason’s, one of which was my insecurities as a blogging virgin.
This year though, I’ve decided to take the plunge.
I want to pay it forward and blow the trumpet for those writers out there that have in no small way entertained me, inspired me and supported my attempts at writing the good read.
So, without further ado I’d like to present to you my new monthly spot.
Today on Poets Portraits I’d like to extend a virtual hand to the Poetry By Archangel White Wolf, who’s writing is, in my opinion… Brilliant. His theme, which I confess is a passion of mine, is very fantasy based with poems of warrior heroes, of love, loss, and revenge.
Most of what you’ll read on his blog is in rhyme and yet each poem tells a story in that moment. Sometimes, the verses are quite soft, gentle and easily read while others have been given the thought they deserve and drive a serious story.
There are many individual poems that could be mentioned but today I’d like to post this beauty which represents my personal interests. It’s a great interpretation and just sums up the theme perfectly.
We’ve worked in secret
Both near and far
We cannot reveal
Just who we are
We’re your friends
Family and lovers
We do this because
Of our love for you
Where others cannot
We stand and fight
For we work in the dark
To serve the light
