Blog of the Week - And Now Poems (4 July, 2011)

At Poets United we are all about our community and enjoying each other's work, so please take the time support one of your fellow poets by visiting our Blog of the Week.

This week our Blog of the Week is

by Victoria Hendricks, a  poet/blogger who lives in Texas, USA.  Her motto is, "Real is better than perfect."  You will see the realness in her poems in this blog.  It may have a no-frills appearance, but her poems are thought-provoking and complex.
Some poems of  Victoria's we would like to highlight from her blog are:

No One Wants War


First Grandchild

Not Obsolete

Thanks, Victoria, for being part of our community!  We appreciate you and your contributions.

Every week Poets United tries to introduce our members and readers to a poet and poetry blog found  in our community.  Poets United is about reading, writing, and enjoying one another’s poetry; and this is just one more way to show our support for one another. We would love to hear your comments on this poet’s blog and poetry; so please come back after visiting the blog of the week and let us know your thoughts.  I am sure the poet would also like to read comments on her poems.

We hope you enjoy visiting the highlighted blogs each week. Thank you for supporting your fellow poets with positive comments.  You may soon see your blog highlighted here.

Mary Kling (who hangs out at  In the Corner of My Eye) for Poets United.
