Checking in with a Reluctant Poet

Today I would like to introduce you to Mr. S., the writer and poet of the blog “Sailorpoet”. If you do not already know Mr. S. I will highly recommend you visit his site and check out his works. I have found My Friend to be a very entertaining and insightful writer whose works are at once impactful, deep, moving, romantic, humorous and just fun to read!

Mr. S. is one of the ringleaders of a growing community of wonderful writers who are connected and sharing with each other to further their skills and for the friendship of being with other like minded souls.

Mr. S. is one of the founding members of “The Inspirators Club” a little club I started for all of those who have provided me with a seed of inspiration for a poem later written by me. I am happy to say this club is steadily growing and Mr. S. is leading the charge to get a Clubhouse.

A perfect example of what a Prince Mr. S. is can be found in his many response and tribute poems to the works of other poets he has discovered and read. Mr. S. has a deep respect and dedication to the writings of others and likes to delve deep into the back catalog of writers. I was extremely blessed to have him do that for me!

Mr. S. and I share a fun connection that was started as a result of his comment on a post by DavyD about what time of day was the best time to write. And as a result He started a Meme of the poem I wrote “The Backside Of The Night”.

I have been “Reluctant” to reblog the piece he wrote about me but hope that you will focus on the words and thoughts of Mr.S. and make a definite effort to check out all of his works!!

Today, I wrap up a short but busy week with Chuck and his catalog of poetry. I hope you go read the work of this good man’s heart. We are blessed to have him in this community and I feel blessed to now call him a friend. He wants to give me credit for the backside of night, and reluctantly I accept, so call me the reluctant backside? I say there is nothing reluctant about this poet, so go and listen to his heart, it is funny and honest and kind. You will not regret it. This is my response to his work, sadly I couldn’t weave in his epic ode to porcelain, but will link to it for you to find and have a good Chuckle (forgive the pun, sir).

My response poem:

What is reluctant about, you, Poet?
Reluctance for me to know your words?

    1. I have wanted to post this for the longest time so that people can see the excellence in your words but I have to tell you even as I put this in the post section it was still really hard for me to take the final step and hit the post button! Still moving at glacial speed. Ha!

      Thank you again for your wonderful support of me and for that tribute. In some very basic ways I guess I’m a little like our Dear Friend, too!
