Posted by Ozymandias on Saturday, April 05, 2014 (10:07:16)

April is National Poetry Month, and poetry is a great reading experience to develop language skills for young children. Reading poetry to young children offers many opportunities for them to learn vocabulary, rhyming words, and skills to help them master reading by learning word decoding with syllabication in the rhymes they hear and later learn to read.Link!

News in Poetry Snow and poetry
Posted by Ozymandias on Sunday, March 09, 2014 (01:33:02)

This trail invites one to pause. The trail I am skiing has about half a dozen poems mounted on sign posts at intervals along the route. The poems have titles like Vagabond Song and May Day and The Winter. I’m no judge of poetry but I admire the artful use of language, the meter, and the economy with which poets wring meaning from text. So I stop to read them even though it offends my desire to create distance and burn calories.Link!

Staff Picks Staff Picks for February 2014
Posted by mamta on Friday, February 21, 2014 (07:35:55)

Another month and I am back with another round of staff picks. I have always found imagist poems fascinating mainly because of the clarity and precision of words and expression. The minimalist style and the visual representation paint a clear picture to the readers. My pick for this month is one such poem by a new poet where the economy of words and vivid images strike a beautiful scene.

News in Poetry Poet Starlets Fear Nothing, Not Even Writing About 'Lady Parts'
Posted by Ozymandias on Saturday, December 21, 2013 (07:54:33)

Photographer Lawrence Schwartzwald created a photo essay about the female starlets of the New York poetry world. These are writers who, as the New York Daily News puts it, “dare to pen lines about subjects like menstruation, orgasms and lady parts that their bros in prose are afraid to touch.” But, you know, they also write useful things about being a person in the world, and they do it well.Link!

News in Poetry Luminous lines
Posted by Ozymandias on Saturday, December 14, 2013 (11:04:25)

Vajpeyi’s poems encourage even the uninitiated to seek in Raza’s works the artist’s and their own antardhwani. Take the poem, “Ab mai akaash ko pukarta hoon”, where the poet draws up a picture of a long isolated sky who, in spite of being above all, hides, whimpering like a child, from loneliness and can be invited to rest awhile and, “washing hands and feet”, partake of daal-roti in the kitchen, find out about old friends and sleep on the soft bed of the earth.

News in Poetry Bookish | Matthew GilbertDrawing on poetry
Posted by Ozymandias on Tuesday, December 03, 2013 (10:13:06)

Poetry and comics. It sounds like an uncomfortable union of arts, joining the spiritual desolation of T. S. Eliot or the restlessness of Arthur Rimbaud with the text balloons and exclamation points that have traditionally filled a newspaper’s “fun pages.” But the forms merge beautifully in the work of Julian Peters.

News in Poetry Poetry breaks through fog of Alzheimer's sufferers
Posted by Ozymandias on Saturday, November 23, 2013 (02:33:01)

This Warwickshire retirement home in is one of many institutions and hospitals across the country turning to poetry to provide some respite from the symptoms of dementia, such as the loss of memory, communication and basic skills. While it provides no cure, the rhythm and pace of well-known verse can act as a trigger for memories and speech, according to Jill Fraser, whose charity “Kissing it Better” organises reading sessions for the elderly.Link!
