They are the ones who make me dream, who make me want to take a pen and write, till I don’t have any more ink to colour pages, who take me out of my zone of comfort, straight into the deep world of words.
I recall Anne Lamott saying “Writing and reading decrease our sense of isolation. They deepen and widen and expand our sense of life: they feed the soul”.
Let’s start with Balqis. Balqis is writing mostly haikus and this is enchanting, cause it creates every time beautiful ideas and images in my mind. I did try to write some without success. It’s maybe why I like Balqis way with words so much.
In the “B” world, we find Balroop. Her poems come straight from the heart and are full of light. When I read her, it feels like stepping out on the road, walking and looking at the beauty on the side, letting this beauty mesmerizing me, emptying me of the dark.
Let’s continue with Parmita Dubay, a passionate writer, a day-dreamer, an author in waiting. If you step by her blog, you definitely need to read the poem she dedicated to me – Being – and I guess you’ll fall in love!
Now I want to introduce you to some French Bloggers. First I’ll take you to Morocco to meet Marie. When she writes, I feel surrounded by peace, calm. I just want to settle down with a hot tea into my favourite chair and let her world consume mine, let her words take me by the hand, as far away as possible.
And then there is Petite Yaye in Senegal this time. Pure, raw, beautiful writing. A young woman with an open heart. Tolerance and kindness seem to belong to her, like sun to the sky.
I’ll end today’s trip in the world of words with Sarah. Poetry again. Everyday joy and everyday pain. Everyday hope and everyday loss. Everyday encounter with death and everyday encounter with life. Everyday everything, but with style!
