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

… Beautiful Broke Flower …

She wore it so gracefully,
Adorned with a beautiful face.
She held her stance.
Keeping her head high,
she brushed away a cry.
Not one of them could see,
a ribcage holding heartaches.
Courage came in that smile,
with the passing of each day.
Somehow life had turned gray hues
to yellow and bright blue light.
Brilliant petals bowed colorful heads,
throwing caution to the wind,
and fragrances lingered on her neck.

~ ———————————– ~

I find
solace in the
branches of time, where there’s
a place found…Null and void of noise.
I love it there, and it’s mine, I own it.
And when I close that door, I walk
from it feeling refreshed.
Answers fulfilled.
I find.

Poetry: A Farce of the Humorous

In this free verse poetry “A Farce of the Humorous.”

I wanted to describe the role of a comedian, some think of her as a farce or buffoon if weren’t to know of her love for comedy and her work. Maybe you can read this explanation through this piece of poetry. Adding a digital art piece to delight the eyes too. Happy Thursdays Beautiful People!

Image of flower bud and a farce of humorous

She made a buffoonery of herself.
A farce of the humorous.
But she was magical.
A contagious—light always beckoning.
Begging the eyes for a view.
The ears to listen to and when you did.
The results were always the same.
First just a smile. Then. The thunderous sound of this laughter.
She held the crowd under siege,
The way She placed words
between her teeth, and how her body shifted.
After the first line, she held them in a trance.
Addicted to her words and laughter.
The faces she made as she told each story,
left many tears streaming upon THEIR faces.
Then a hush came over the crowd,
as she pronounced, this is the last one.
They screamed for more, more, and more.
A great comedian was she.

Poetry: Particles of Dreams

In this free verse poetry “Particles of Dreams”.

A man watches his beautiful lover resting on satin sheets dreaming…He envisions her dreams as he could actually see them. He wants to capture them. A digital art piece to exaggerate the feeling.

image of lover dream particles and poetry

I stand
In shadows
Eyes wide open.
I don’t
Want to miss them.
(Particles.
Of dreams floating.)
I imagined.
I saw you sleeping.
Your thoughts.
Floating like clouds.
Between darkness and light.
Moonlight ignites them.
Like tiny fireflies.
Dreams.
Buzzing around.
Around above your beautiful tresses.
I can see them now.
So lucid, warm and sweet.
So heavenly.

The 10 O’Clock Hour

The journey starts with the encounter of a man and woman who by accident briefly meet each other. The lurch of the train moving forward force an encounter. No words are spoken. Just an exchange of a touch, a silly, sweet smile. A business card is slipped into the hands of Emily. Then she is left with the notion of what could be and her feelings of the silent tantalizing moment of a brief encounter with love.

Short Story: A Pillar of Humaneness

In this short story “A Pillar of Humaneness”.

I try to emphasize in this short story about being observant. It is a lesson every day as a mother, I try to teach my 9 years OLD Bianca. Life is about seeing hearing the silent languages, feeling the pain without words through body language. Being compassionate to those silent noises, one can help humanity. “A Pillar of Humaneness” brings this lesson to light.

a short story and image of a pillar of humaneness

I saw an old friend,
at the local Greek eatery.
Something about his presence
was daunting.
His head hung with heaviness.
His slouched body void of noise.
He sat quietly just sipping a glass of merlot.
But yet, the place was noisy, buzzing with conversation.
People sat on both sides of him,
and not one conversed with him.

I stood there in awe, just watching.
It was like black and white.
The black of a sad quietness.
And the white noise of happiness.
Such a contrast to my eyes and ears.
It wasn’t as if he’s hidden,
in some dark corner of the restaurant.
He was in the midst of it all.
A pillar of humaneness.

I approached him softly, leaning in, whispering his name.
He heard me and lifted his head.
With softness in my voice, “How are you?
“Not good, I’m suffering! Two of my friends passed,” he said.
Gently, I placed my hand on his back,
softly caressing his back as I listen to his story.
Tears spilled down his cheeks.
I soothed him with words, calming his hurt.
He grabbed my hand and held it.
Of all the people here,

you’re the only one who heard my heart crying.

Poetry: Rebirth…New Circles of Life.

New circles of life are formed through the rebirth of hope.

In this free verse poetry, one can absorb the idea…a new dawn rising. Of changes, of the mind, body, and soul. Thought processes can inhibit a darker place waiting for a light. A pink rose bud, looking for its first taste of yellow glow and warm. A newborn baby gasping its first breath. A cocoon yielding a colorful show of wings.

image of rebirth of new life. butterfly

Swallowed…Darken cocoon.
Time holds answers to beautiful entities.
Light is the rebirth on spoken whispers.
Silence flutters in a furious wind.
Colors burst upon the first cry.
Hope opens in new circles of life.

Poetry: a Murmuring Ghost.

Do you ever feel like your a murmuring ghost?

You’re asleep, and then there it is noises.  They become louder and louder to the point of waking up. A free verse poetry simulating the murmurings of the night or maybe dreams that wake the dead.

image of a murmuring ghost

My ghost,
She came back from the dead.
She wasn’t white.
But red instead.
She wore this grin.
With it,
she laughed continually.
It became quite annoying,
Obnoxious as hell.
I told her to stop it.
But the night rang a bell.
It was in these
wee morning hours.
That I realized;
was all but a dream.
It was just myself
and my loud murmurings.

50-Word Story: Beautifully and Broken

…Around you, you walk beautifully and broken souls exposed under layers of skin, visibility is seen in the rain drops that fall. And in place lies seeds willing to grow love. The chaos, the unpredictable, the negative hard truths of life and yet you walk a sweet soul. A 50-word story and digital art piece for my gorgeous peeps!

image of a beautifully broken rose from stem

We call it broken,
That kind of scar
That bleeds within the mind.
It’s more noticed,
if it lies upon the flesh,
spilling from openness.
Strength is the bandage,
to hold all together as a whole,
and accept layers of healing,
of love and still bloom
beautifully in clouds
and the wind.
