The Poetess For Today Is ~

The Poetess For Today Is ~

Well, today is March 9th, 2016, and I want to introduce to you another poetess friend who is an author of numerous books and also publishes for others.  She is an owner and administtrator on a FB poetry site called Potpourri Poets/Artists. She’s not busy at all… LOL!

May I introduce to you, Susan Joyner-Stumphf. Today, I want to recognize her for all of the accomplishments, and for her personal poetic writing which is deep, extensive, mysterious, sensuous, haunting and the descriptive list goes on and on. But, most importantly, Susan is a supporter for other writers and is always encouraging the least of us to continue writing. The giving of her time and support to others often seems limitless.

Under Susan’s picture you can read her poem, Soul’s Release. And, under her poem you will find her bio that she wrote, plus how to find her books, her FB page link, and business card for any further questions.

So without any further introduction, here is Susan’s poem, Soul’s Release…





You will know of truths

They scrape your cells

You will feel the whir,

The adagio of their tailwind,

Touching you like a

Myriad of pearled feathers

Ancient whispers

Awakened noumenon

Fabric opening of cognition

Sanguine moments, stilled

Rippling time a voluble blip

In your restive heart-star

Winking at the semi-darkness

Candle on the ocean’s scar

Thoughts ~ ~ … life forms

Of their own massed holograph,

Kaleidoscopic orbs

Re-circling the vacuum of

What once was of cranial dust

Now transcendent-luminous

Echelon of Earth’s God-stroked genesis

Fingering of divine tracing beam

That then became inculcated Sapiens

In those ruminate clouds where

Slipstream dreams are swallowed

A greater force is recognized,

Finds its collided deluge

Its then-fling with death’s tiny surprise

A taste that immortality seizes from a ‘high!

Passion’s aurora gate, amber-ridden bliss

The folds that cupped my mortal sting

Are now my Soul’s Release.
