When Poems by Post commissioned Alba Frederick to write October's poem, and Harriette Lloyd to design the accompanying artwork, we didn't quite realise just how perfect a match they would be! Alba's abstract imagery and pared-back, emotional poem partnered perfectly with Harriette's fascination for empty spaces, and the end result blew us away.
September 2021 marked Poems by Post's first birthday! To celebrate, Alex and Kelsy, without whom this platform wouldn't exist, joined forces on a poetry-and-artwork combination to celebrate all things creative! Of course, this is Poems by Post, so a typewriter had to take centre stage...
Is there a bigger question than what it is that makes us human? Well, that's exactly the question eloquently posed by Rohan Samuel, in his thoughtful piece 'Humane' - accompanied by equally philosophical artwork by Morgan McHale-Dill.
In July Matt Alton took our hands, and walked us through a journey of self-discovery and self-acceptance with his wonderful poem 'A home to call your own'. The artist behind the beautiful envelope and accompanying card, all inspired by Matt's poem, was the brilliant Fay Troote!
This month we have a poem about poetry! Mina West delves into her own journey into poetry for inspiration for June's poem. Perhaps there'll be some fellow addicts getting a hit from this one...
As the world opens back up and the sun starts to shine, we all have a chance to re-venture outside and appreciate Mother Nature in all her gory. Dana's poem serves as a reminder of the connection between ourselves and the natural world.
In a world where distancing has become the new social, Blake Auden chronicles the events of the past year in his trademark style - succinct yet poignant.
You can find peace and serenity within the Ocean's fierce power. PM allows our emotions to surf the Waves in this evocative and thought-provoking poem, encouraging us to reconnect with ourselves and our emotions.
Before we fall in love with anybody else, we must first learn to love ourselves... Niamh Murphy's 'Falling In Love' perfectly captures the little moments that we all experience; the moments of self-appreciation that we all take for granted; the moments that we all need to pause and take stock of. We were delighted to have Niamh as February's featured poet, and we hope that you love her words as much as we do.
In these trying times it's the small things that keep us going. It's our family, our routines, and our unwavering hope and belief that we will get through this. Sam Bruce brilliantly captures the feeling of the world with their words; their personal experiences resonating deeply with everybody who hears/reads them. Working with Sam was a delight, and we are proud to share this poem with you.
