Leo... the Rhymer without reason. Leo hardly needs any introduction to bloggers particularly to my readers. Any attempt to introduce him would be akin to carrying coal to Newcastle. He is a well known and popular figure in my circle of bloggers and surely beyond and held in high esteem for his poetic ability. I strongly feel that the title of his blog I Rhyme Without Reason is a misnomer for he writes each time with reason and with profound common sense. His poems are invariably works of art and great charm serving as benchmark for me and many budding poets to emulate and reach. He is himself a prolific writer in various platforms besides encouraging various bloggers through his succinct comments. I know he has been a mentor to many promising poets who approach him, guiding them into the nuances of various forms of poetry and prose. I have personally benefited by my association with him in the field of writing and blogging. I would proudly share with you the secret that my beautiful template is his creation.He hosts a handful of memes from Thursday Tales, to Haiku Heights, to Lots of Laughter and lately the Z-A Challenge in 26 Days for the month of November, which will be ending tomorrow and which I had actively participated that made me a prolific writer for this month as a blogger. Do we need a proof to show that he is a versatile writer and blogger very well known in the blogging community around the world . Name a meme, and he's there with his splendid poems, e.g Monday Poetry Potluck, Thursday Poets' Rally, Writers Island, Sensational Wednesday Haiku and many more.
Lest I give more *talks* with his guesting here than he would do...let me now give the floor to the Rhymer ................. opppsss... he opted this time for a long prosaic lullaby for me but it still rhymes, hiding the poet in him na... :P
Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome, the Amateur Poet who Rhymes Without Reason..:D~*~*~*~I frankly don't know what I'm doing here :P Wasn't I here just a year back? I'm sure I said a lot and most of what I know about this Filipino auntie Amity ;) What more could I add on to that, I wonder! I said she puts a lot of effort into her blogging and she still does. I said she had a talent in Acrostics, she still does, and she's even got a bucketload of award badges from Amias at Acrostic Only to prove her talent was recognized by one of the best writers of Acrostic poetry I know! I said she's a passionate friend, and she is. What more do I add on about Amity? Awwww shucks, no wonder I "nearly" backed out of this guest post agreement. See Amity, I'm finding it so difficult to write about you. :PI'll give it a try nevertheless. In the past one year, Amity has taken a serious commitment to writing. The fact that she has won two Blog-A-Tonic badges in successive months itself shows she's putting more effort to fine-tune her writing. Kudos to her for that. She's also got better and better at writing Haikus and is a regular at my haiku meme, Haiku Heights. She's now past 200 followers at her blogspace, which should be a milestone too. Not that it would end there, a thousand looks on the cards soon for this extremely sensitive blogger, who tells she'll take "breaks" when she gets irritated. Good thing her plans don't take shape though, I'm sure many would miss her words. She doesn't like her other blog All Acrostics that much, and even after its creation, she's continued to write her acrostics at Dreams are my Reality itself. She's going to heights in blogging, so I think on her anniversary, I'll gift her a nice jacket, so she doesn't feel the chill up there... maybe I can join her there sometime soon! :)I think that's all I've to add on, since I already mentioned that Madhu mentioned she's stealing hearts in my previous guest post here last year! Hope to see her writing a lot of different forms, win more and more awards and appreciation from her peers, and maybe get to meet her sometime.Signing off,
The Amateur Poet,
