ANNOUNCEMENT: Urban Poetry Moving to WolffPoetry.com

image of urban poetry is moving

Hello, my beautiful followers and fans! First things first, thank you for your beautiful and supportive comments through this year. If wasn’t for all of you, Urban Poetry wouldn’t have grown as fast as it did.

But, Urban Poetry has grown and doesn’t conform to the structure of WordPress.com, we can only stay for a short time. The capacity of how fast this site is growing over capacitates the WordPress structure.

On October 5th, 2017 we purchased the domain name, Wolff Poetry.

I thought it only fitting to distinguish myself in this new domain name.

  1. Wolff, being my last name.
  2. Poetry is what I love to write.

Thus, is born the new me on the Internet “Wolff Poetry.” I bring a new thought to this new site. In many of the comments I have received, they are as follows.

These are the questions I am asked and in my new site, I will be inserting the answers through a blog post.

  1. How do you get so many page views a month in so short of time on the internet, since Urban Poetry only started January 3, 2017?
  2. How did you come to acquire so many followers in so little time?

  3. Can your offer resources of writing tools you use?

  4. Can your offer resources and help in how to get my poetry self-published?

Above and beyond, I want you to read for yourself “Who is Wolff Poetry?

I am in hopes that you will follow me to my new site, cause my mission is to offer support to new writers, and tips and tools to grow your following and blog, and offer assistance in helping you bring your creative writing to publication in the success I did.

Thanks again,

Linda J. Wolff

Your dearest fan!

Poetry: Etched Time

…Bringing back a piece of poetry I wrote January 2016.
white delicate petals
Time seemed…to etch her into the darken shadows.
But her delicate white petals seem to stand out.
She kinda had that beauty that would light the darkest sky.
You could see her glow in the fragrance—left behind.

Poetry: So Strong and So Weak

Withered from the pelting rain, it rises again to greet the sun.  I found an old picture of big beautiful blossoms, spun a few effects to create this very soft, subtle digital art piece. And a Rictameter verse to accentuate the flow of poetry.

image of big flower blossoms.

Just like flowers, we too can be so strong and so weak altogether.

I am a delicate flower, but so strong.

So strong.
But yet so weak,
She gave love, even in
the moments when she was falling
apart. Like a delicate white flower
withstanding a rain storm, and how
it rises to the sun
for warmth, she stands
so strong.

Always
throw yourself in
to it completely. Where
they can read it. Where they can see
it and they can inhale it. Be it through
slighted breeze. Be it through petals,
and lingering fragrances.
Pause and enjoy.
Always.

Poetry: Petals and Thorns

image of wild rose

Petals and scars…

a free verse poetry… rhyming or non-rhyming… More about forms of poetry.

All your frozen scars and mine,
ignite our fire and ice.
This love is new and old over time,
and just like that,
another day is a fresh start.
Like little buds opening,
waiting for kisses from the morning sun.
You are all for me and I for you.
A beautiful rose of petals and thorns.
I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Poetry: Places Between Space

stand

…a new form of poetry—Rictameter Verse. This poem uses 9 lines in the poem, and strict syllable count: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 with the first line repeating itself in the last line.

Purple
existence lives,
in places between space.
Can’t see them with the naked eye.
Purple hides behind the shadows of time.
Revealed within the dreams sublime.
It’s when you see white flecks,
behind the eye.
Purple.

Poetry: Fishnet of Scars

image of fishnet

Fishnet of Scars.

a free verse poetry… rhyming or non-rhyming… More about forms of poetry

I found you,
among the barnacles
and dead sea skeletons
in the dark sea of life.
Trapped in a
fishnet of scars
and weighted memories.
I swam to you,
luring you with bait,
backed by a smile
and laughter so contagious,
and that kind of sweetness
that you couldn’t resist,
setting you free.
You seemed to flounder
for awhile.
Unable to accept,
that life could offer promises
of love, so true and complete.
But over time, I saw a twinkle
in those baby blue eyes,
as they soften with
the reflection of me.
