My BYOB List 2 – My Favorite Poems


My BYOB (Blog Your Own Best) list 1 has a list of my favorite posts. BYOB list 2 is a list of my favorite poems. For all poetry lovers, who love nothing more than a poem, this is for you because these words strung together will not come to life unless read by you. For those who hate poetry, this is for you too- maybe you’ll change your opinion :).

I know a favorite list should be short and sweet but choosing my favorite poems among the ones I have written so far was the most difficult task. So I cheated!

I decided to group my poems under sections and chose 5 poems under each section – Nature, Life, Love, Earth, Inspirational, Memories, Relationships and Fun.

Choose the section that tugs your heart and let me know how you feel on reading the poems. Which one is your favorite? If you like them all, you can go to the poetry section of my blog and read the rest :).

A big thanks  to fellow blogger James Clark,  James Clark — The Next Iteration    for the suggestion of creating a favorite list. It’s the best piece of advice I have received on WordPress till date.

    I enjoy writing my poems more than anything else. It takes me to unexplainable places and I don’t think I can choose a favourite out of the few I have written because I love them all.
    Nice post👍🏼 will check out your poems.

      😊I am glad you wrote this comment Marium. I felt like I was being rather unreasonable yesterday, finding it so difficult to let go of the poems. Its good to know that it’s ok to feel like this.
      Hopefully you enjoy reading them. Let me know 😊

      For the advice you gave me, you deserve all the thanks :).
      Looking forward to reading your comments on the poems…I know the list is a little long but not adding a poem to the list was the most difficult task.
