Posted by mamta on Friday, February 21, 2014 (07:35:55)

Another month and I am back with another round of staff picks. I have always found imagist poems fascinating mainly because of the clarity and precision of words and expression. The minimalist style and the visual representation paint a clear picture to the readers.

Staff Picks Staff Picks for November 2013
Posted by mamta on Tuesday, November 19, 2013 (16:49:19)

Autumn poems always have wonderful visuals mainly due to the changing color of leaves that lend color to the trees and the ground once they fall. My pick of this month is one such poem which is rich in imagery with lots of color and visuals.
