@divingintothedumpster_girl wrote this heavy-hitting poem which we're selecting as today's her heart work of the day.
.
abuse. domestic violence. human trafficking. exploitation of youth and underprivileged minorities. these are all subjects wherein poetry serves as an excellent means of expression, because, as you can see from dumpster girl's poem, poetry can take these impossibly difficult subjects fused with our thoughts and emotions and unfortunate personal experiences and communicate them to others in a way that makes it all relatable and personal. it's still never easy to read about these incredibly tragic truths of our reality, but if we don't talk about them or write about them, how can we do anything to prevent it?
.
thank you for being bold, dumpster girl. thank you for being courageous enough to keep on going in spite of your experience. most importantly, though, thank you for sharing your heart and strength with us. we hear you. we see you. we are here for you. no more running. <3

The annual is a yearly anthology published by her heart poetry that showcases some of the best and brightest poets the world has to offer, and @reese.leyva has always been among their ranks.
.
her poem, danger, is included in the third section of this year's edition, titled 'the significance of significants,' which highlights the many facets of relationships.
.
reese is well-known for her voice of female empowerment, and danger is an incredible example of her self-sufficiency and intolerance of abuse in any form. after you've read it here, make sure to read it aloud, as well, because these words need volume!
.
thank you so much for sharing your strength with us both today and through the annual. we are over the moon to have your work included in this year's anthology and hope to see your work submitted for future anthologies, as well. ^.^

If you've got any winter-themed poetry, please make sure to tag it with #herheartpoetry so that we can make sure to get it featured! tis the season, after all. ;)
.
this beautiful piece of uncommon strength comes from @writings_by_barbara. it isn't often than winter and snowflakes, coldness and ice are used to show the strength of someone soul, but we absolutely adore barbara's resolve with this poem.
.
just remember, though, that whether or not you're capable of staving off winter's chill like barbara, your feelings and emotions in these darker winter months are 100% valid, and we still want to read whatever truth is in your heart to share. <3
.
thank you for sharing your unique and inspiring perspective with us today, barbara. now it's time for some personal reflection. ;)

What beautiful interpretive ambiguity in this piece by @joe_del_monte!
.
how do you interpret this piece?
.
is joe paddling like crazy to catch an unnamed lover, or is he paddling desperately to catch the black night and broken moon itself? do the night and moon symbolize a person, or is literally trying to embrace the star-filled void and the hermit who lives suspended there?
.
a poets greatest tool is ambiguity, and joe has utilized that tool with superb efficiency and mastery with this poem. can't wait to hear your interpretations of his beautiful work! thank you for sharing such a lovely piece with us today. ^.^

Poems like this one from @greisoncrow remind us of why it's so wonderful to be a poet.
.
most of us are dreamers.
hopeful romantics.
star-lost wanderers.
bleeding hearts.
kids at heart who don't see the sense in discarding imagination and the power of a soul.
.
poems like greison's are wonderful for bridging the gap between poets and the rest of the world, but they're also fantastic for reminding us - the ones writing - that the sky really does give us wings that only we understand how to use.
.
thank you for sharing this bit of inspiration with us today, greison. we hope it will serve as a reminder to any feeling somewhat grounded, that day or night, the sky is waiting for us. <3

You may not recognize the names wendy hines or @silverlake23, but they are one and the same, and she is one of our 38 poets featured in this year's edition of the annual which is now available in physical and digital formats at herheartpoetry.com.
.
this poem was an obvious choice to be included in the annual, because both visually and conceptually, wendy illustrates the gaps that can so easily grow between the closest of lovers, friends, and even family.
.
found in section three, the significance of significants, and touching on subjects of bullying and domestic abuse, as well, one of our favorite aspects of wendy's poem is the fact that both sides remain genderless throughout the piece. this is so important these days, because abuse doesn't move in one direction every time, and the sooner we accept it, the sooner we can begin to address issues on both sides of the table.
.
truly wonderful work, wendy! we are so honored to have your work included in the annual this year and hope to see your work reappear in future editions to come. ^.^
.
please take a moment to check out the rest of wendy's eclectic page which is filled with poetry, artwork, photography, and even knitting! she's quite the craftswoman, so show her some love, and remember to support both her and her heart poetry by picking up a copy of the annual today.
.

comment 8 star 102 Yesterday

How about a somber, little piece of somewhat unfortunate truth from @p.bodii to get the week started? (:
.
growth is not often an easy process. remember puberty? some kids grow so fast that their bones literally ache all day long for months without end. how much more difficult, then, is emotional and mental growth, or the growth involved in bettering ones craft?
.
some have suggested that anything which comes to you easily is not worth keeping. not sure about that, exactly, but we wholeheartedly agree with what p.bodii is saying here: personal growth requires constant reassessment which can be difficult, but the silver lining? the success in the end tastes so much sweeter!
.
thank you for this reminder, @p.bodii . it's a sobering notion to go into the week knowing, that difficulties lie ahead, but being prepared for them makes them easier to bear, right? <3
