One Year Anniversary

Exactly one year ago today I started this blog by posting the poem The Darkness of His Dreams. Since then I have published 256 posts (246 poems (Among them 28 Haiku/Senryu, 46 Tanka, 2 Sonnets, and 35 poems involving Mythology (30 of them involving Norse Mythology)), 8 pieces of prose and a couple administrative announcements, similar to this one). My most liked posts have been:

  1. Childhood Memory (Haiku)
  2. For Bob Dylan
  3. Portrait of the Poet
  4. For Vincent van Gogh
  5. I Dreamed I Saw Old Socrates

Also in that time 355 people have subscribed to the blog via WordPress and there have been 1146 comments posted by readers. The top commentors have been Kindra M. Austin (77), Colleen Chesbro (58), Sarah Doughty (52) and Christine Valentor (47).

I want to thank every person who has visited this blog, subscribed, read my poetry and commented over the past year. Your support truely means more to me than I can express.

Thank you all.

John W. Leys

  2. I came across a poem you wrote for a braveandreckless prompt, and I found it truly profound, it truly spoke to me. There is so much sadness there, and I feel so much for the people who can relate to the words you wrote. I didn’t need to relate like that, but just see something that would resonate with others (soldiers, I suppose). I can tell that you truly feel things, and thank you for putting them into such beautiful words so others can see a little glimpse of what you see. All the best to you.
