As always, I want to nominate some bloggers who are kind enough to comment and like my posts, but I don’t really have time to follow as much as I’d like:

  • First, there’s Seedbud’s beautiful photographic blog Leaf and Twig. It’s simple, elegant, and full of the loveliest photos.
  • Green-Eyed Geisha features song lyrics, poems, pin-ups, and love letters on
  • Steven McCabe of Poem Image has gorgeous poetry and artwork.
  • FloridaBorne writes Two On A Rant, about two women and the little things that bug them.


Please visit these remarkable blogs to check out their unique styles, amazing poetry, thought-provoking writing, beautiful photography and inspiring art. You will not be disappointed.
