Blog of the Week - Paula Wanken (28 November, 2011)

Today Poets United would like to recognize Paula Wanken's blog Echoes from the Silence as the Blog of the Week.  We are all about community, and Paula definitely has been active in our community.  She has often taken part in Thursday Think Tank, has usually been a supporter of Sunday's Poetry Potluck.

To get a sense of her poetry, here are a few for you to check out:

Gathering Thoughts - Perhaps many of us have family members we missed at the Thanksgiving meal last week. Pauls writes about a family member she missed.

Advancements - Here Paula writes about how things change as time goes on.

Corralled  - I really liked the story of the stallion's quest for freedom.

But don't stop there, friends.  Paula's blog is filled with a variety of interesting reads.  Hope you will enjoy taking a look.  Paula, thank you for being such an active member of our community.

It is always a thrill to have the opportunity to feature the blogs of some of the talented people who are active in our community.

Written for Poets United by Mary who can be found at In the Corner of My Eye.


  1. WOW...what a surprise, Mary, to see my name in the Facebook newsfeed! I'm just a couple weeks shy of my one-year anniversary of starting my blog and couldn't be more blessed by this honor. Thank you! :)
