I Am MOVING Sites!!!

long time friend poem image

Oh where, oh where, has Poetry Perfected gone?

Oh where, oh where, can it be?

It’s moving soon, that is FOR SURE.

And I want you to MOVE WITH ME!!!

Yes, it’s true. I have decided to do away with this free site… and move all of my posts to my author site, Laying It Out There at http://lorrainereguly.com… and so if you want to continue reading my poetry, please subscribe to my newsletter/email list over there!

OR USE THIS LINK. You’ll get a freebie when you do!😉


There are 4 reasons, actually.

1: I now have 3 other sites in addition to this one. I just started The Blind Writer a while ago. This new site is geared to helping writers find direction. Learn more about it here.

I also have Wording Well, my business/freelancing site where I offer tips to bloggers, writers, freelancers, and business owners.

2: This is currently a free site that can be deleted at any point.

3: I am only one person and think that having four sites is having one too many. I also don’t like the dashboard of this site anymore.

4: I have been neglecting my author site for some time. I am going to add a new page for my poetry to it.


I do not want to lose you as a reader, however, and so I urge you to sign up for my other site!

The best way is to get on my email list. USE THIS LINK TO DO SO! (EVEN IF YOU DON’T WANT THE FREEBIE!)


WordPress emails me every time someone follows my blog. I’ve kept those emails, too. So I know who you are, and how to get ahold of you, if need be.

I was thinking of emailing you individually, but it’s easier for me to simply ask you to get on my author email list. USE THIS LINK.

I value you as a reader, as a comment-er and as a sharer of my posts.

I like you. I don’t want to lose you.

Please move with me!

Risky Issues and Lorraine Reguly

Not really poetry, but worth sharing nonetheless…😉

The Writer Next Door


It is my pleasure to present to you today a fellow writer and blogger Lorraine Reguly.

Lorraine-Reguly-author Author Lorraine Reguly

Risky Issues by Lorraine Reguly serves a very necessary and worthwhile function; it opens the door to conversation. We all know that children and teens these days face intense and tragic challenges, and we all know that these same youngsters have a tendency to keep it all inside (sometimes threatened by the people who prey on them). Caught up in the silent web of pain, lies and deceit, kids will often make bad decisions, while if they had been able to discuss the issues and get some rational feedback, they could often see things in a different light and rise above the challenges to create happy, successful lives for themselves. This book could make the difference. A survivor of abuse herself, Reguly has seen all sides of this experience…

5 Things a Poet Doesn’t Tell You

Well said, Christy! I don’t think I could have said it better myself.😀

What, you mean that a poet might be hiding details from you, the dear reader? Perhaps. Grins. Here are five of the things a poet doesn’t tell you – until now!

Poets and Visions, or Lack of

It’s not always the case that the poet has a vision of what to write about when picking up a pen or putting fingers to keyboard. Instead, some writers go with the flow and get swept up within the moment as one line leads to the next one. This smooth flow often leads to beautiful poems because of its fairly effortless creation.

On Poetry Being ‘Dead’

Despite the familiar cries of readers that “poetry is a dying art form,” poets remain calm. A passionate poet knows that this style of writing remains alive in his or her heart. Even if there were…

Spam Poem #1

Christy Birmingham PhotoSo Christy Birmingham posed a challenge and I am trying to meet it.

I don’t have a lot of readers of this blog (but that’s not why I have this blog anyway) and so don’t get spam comments here. Wording Well is my main blog, and I get tons there! So I’m taking my spam comments from there to create this post.



 Here are the spam comments:

I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great. I don’t know who you are but definitely you are going to a famous blogger if you are not already😉 Cheers!

I have to thank you for the efforts you have put in penning this website. I really hope to view the same high-grade content by you later on as well. In truth, your creative writing abilities has encouraged me to get my
own site now😉 Visit my web-site – porn videos

Greetings from Idaho! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break.
I love the info you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m amazed at how quick your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, very good site!

I go to see day-to-day some blogs and blogs to read articles, but this blog presents quality based content.


Here is my poem:

I don’t know how I ended up here

on the internet.

I guess it was because I was bored to death at work.

Who really knows?

Now I’m penning this website, and others, too,

trying to write quality-based content.

Oh, and I’m also trying to have fun.

If these spammers would ever leave me alone,

I might be able to achieve my goals.


So there it is!

A fun exercise, which I hope you enjoyed.🙂

Guest Post – Uncredited

Thanks goes out to Sophie Bowns, for this wonderful poem, which I really like!

~Idiot Writing~

A Guest Post
By Sophie Bowns

A completed novel is in my grasp, why am I pulling on the reins?

Why do I have these inhibitions, which are tying me up in chains?

I can do this; the readers of my unpublished novel believe in me

Why is it that I am curling up in a corner, when I so long to be free?

My ideas are down on paper, almost completed, longing to be edited;

I cannot remain as an unknown writer, whose novels go uncredited.

Next months I must be braver, any edits of my book I must complete

Yes, the time has come to take the plunge and perhaps I will find my feet.

My Blog Is Alive – Poem

I just came across this author recently. This is one fantastic piece of poetry – and humorous, too.🙂 Enjoy!

So I want to be an author...

My blog is alive and it’s feeling neglected.

Mailed me asking “Where’s that post I expected?

I know that you worry your writing is weak,

but it’s not like you’re writing in ancient Greek.

It’s Friday already so get a move on,

before you know it the whole week will have gone.

You want to be perfect but in this case

I really think you ought to pick up the pace.

I’m waiting to see just what you’ll come up with.

This is the life that you so wanted to live?

There’s no point whining or throwing a strop;

that’s not going to help you get to the top.

Stop watching Netflix or reading a book,

don’t avoid me by offering to cook.

Get something written and post it now,

or you and I will get in a row.

Visit today, do not be late

think of me as a…

Interview with Writer Betsy A. Riley

Please enjoy the poem Betsy Riley shares here.🙂

Paint Fumes

The odors arising from the paint fumes

are not unpleasant;

they mark a new beginning

for the kitchen being painted;

they are a memory of family

and friends

working together

to create



where more good memories can be created.
