Tarot Mandalas

I want to try to identify some less trafficked blogs that are just as worth visiting as their much busier superhighway neighbors.

Tarot Mandalas is not your traditional poetry blog.  The poems are supposedly based on Tarot Readings — and this is an area I have not knowledge of or understanding of — yet, each entry reads like a wonderfully wrought poem, each with a special musical identity.

The author poets together ten-line stanzas (usually, it seems, into 9 stanza poems).

I am so tempted to quote one of these amazing verses, but don’t wish to do so without the author’s permission. (May update this post with a quote later, if I do get such permission, however, the site appears to have been inactive for awhile.)

Rather than my attempting to further explain the nature of this site, best for you to ditch my blog and visit the Tarot Mandalas site.

Silliman’s Blog

Ron Silliman, the 2006 Poet Laureate of the Blogosphere, provides a website of exploration, an online amusement park, that covers not only poetry but music  (John Cage, Fred Hersch, Anthony Braxton), art, linguistics, books and literature, dance (Merce Cunningham) and other worthwhile subjects.  Make no mistake, this site’s focus is poetry, poems and poets:  videos of topnotch poets reading their works, excerpts of poems, complete poems, external links for living poets, fitting remembrances of those passing on, and Ron Sillman’s own writing.  The amount of content here is overwhelming and a tribute to Sillman’s energy and  productivity.

Check out Mr. Sillman’s site, his blogroll and some of his poems.
