The Tuesday Platform


Greetings to all poets, wayfarers and friends. It's the holiday season and Christmas is right around the corner! It's the time when we're given the opportunity to brighten other people's lives by spreading warmth and joy. Moreover, it's when we bear each other's burden and lighten the load of mind.

I came across this glorious collection of poetry reading by several celebrities, and knew that it would be absolutely perfect to share with you guys this week. Poems such as "If everything happens that can't be done," and "Do not go gentle into that Good Night," tend to make us think more deeply about life. 

If you have any thoughts to share, ideas you wish to release into the wild or a world view to express, then you have come to the right place. Please share a poem of your choice and enjoy the company of your fellow scribes. We look forward to reading you and hope you have a wonderful day ahead.

  2. Linking this week's Monday WRites poem. Good Morning. Wishing all a fine day.
    I received a shock last night hearing that one of my friends was hospitalized over the weekend and had died. Her two daughters and her mother are distraught. RIP Paula Clarke. Already I miss her.

    much love...

  4. I'm afraid my poem is not very uplifting. Also, everything happens so fast these days, this is my response to a terrible event of only a week or so ago, but it seems longer away. xoxo
