Welcome back to Poppy's Preferences :)

This week I didn't find as many creators that were new to me but definitely stumbled across some beautiful poems. Please check out the links below and look at the poets' profiles too!


Give Me More to Love by Hannah Moore

Okay, this has got to be one of the cleverest poems I've ever read. I'm assuming it's for the Short and Sweet Challenge; she did an absolutely amazing job of saying so much with just four letter words and less. It was incredibly captivating and like I said, INSANELY CLEVER. I can't even explain how good it was.

And Then Suddenly by Callum Smith

This one told a beautiful touching narrative which was effortless to read. There were multiple gorgeous lines I had to reread but the end one really stuck with me:

And if heaven exists; I know it is a sofa with him next to me; existing, loving and being.

On Marriage and Summer Squash by L.A. Hancock

This one was so creative and unique filled with affection and warmth. It all led up to a beautiful, heart-touching ending.

This is New by Mackenzie Davis

Mackenzie Davis always writes incredible poetry, never ceasing to take my breath away. Her poems from the past week have given me a new appreciation for haiku. This was probably my favourite but it was hard to choose. She has incredible talent.


Here's another few that already has some reads but definitely deserve more!

Wildflowers by Joelle Nanula

These four haiku are beautiful on their own and even more amazing together. They flow so effortlessly and have an uplifting message behind them. Some of my favourite poems I've read lately.

Every Inch by Kelli Sheckler-Amsden

This one says so much in such few words. The similes are gorgeous and I found myself rereading it multiple times to fully appreciate the beauty of it.


Thanks for reading!

Here's one of mine:

    Did I never comment on this??? Thank you so much for featuring me, Poppy! I just read all of your suggestions and I was wowed more than once! Your eye for poetry is superb, and I am enjoying catching up on your Preference series. Kelli's was WOW and I really loved L.A. Hancock's.

  • This is such a cool thing you do. Opening us up to new reads we may have missed and is such a great way to support another writer. Thank you for all you do. Your insights and feedback are a great source of encouragement.

    I completely missed this collection. Sorry about that - came across it because I saw Pt3...and thought, "Wait...did I miss part 2!" lol! I love that there are some writers I know and love in your selection and some that I've never read. Keep this up! As Judey said, seeing what poems and writers stand out to different creators is interesting. I love your introductions to each piece and love your community spirit! As part of my reading for today on Vocal I shall look at this and Pt2. Thank you for being an asset to the Vocal community, Poppy!
