Blog of the week - Wordgathering (18 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 Margo Roby, a  poet/blogger who lives in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, and is a retired teacher.  If you take a look at Margo's blog, you will see that Margo is a very knowledgeable poet who supports a lot of online poetic communities, in addition to writing poems of her own.

Some poems of Margo's  that we would like to highlight from his blog are located in the Some of My Words Gathered section of her poetry blog.

The poems don't have individual links, but the ones that Pamela Sayers selected as being good examples of Margo's work are  "By Design," "Word Flight,"  and "Early Morning."    Take a look at these and other poems you will see.
Hope you will take a look at those and explore Margo's blog even more.

Thanks, Margo, 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. This blog and the poems, as we said above, were suggested by  Pamela Sayers.  Thank you, Pamela. 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.

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.
