Review Tuesdays - Her World

For us poets, writing our heart out means a lot. Poetry is our world, and we sometimes lose ourselves wandering its many streets. Browsing Jingle Poetry Potluck, I found a new blog, just into the fifth month. The title expresses what a poet feels about poetry – “My World”. The poetess there, Rashmi Jayakrishnan

More about Rashmi
Rashmi is a blogger and a poetess from India. She calls herself a toddler in poetry, one who continued in poems after getting support from her friends. She informs her readers that being new to poetry, they might find rough edges there, and may or may not call them as poems. However, she is open to suggestions, and that I feel is a quality any poet should have, as they look to improve their art.

What’s her world like?

Rashmi’s blog is more focused on the poems than the template or design. The template is a Blogger default template, with a split sidebar. There are six widgets: Followers, Recent Posts, About, Blogroll, Blog Archive and her Indiblogger Rank. The blog archives show that she’s been writing from July 2010 and has 34 posts.

Rashmi’s Poetry:
Rashmi’s poems are simple and from her heart. No unnecessary depth in them, and nice rhyme and/or flow to each of her works. She writes for a few memes, Jingle Poetry and Thursday Poets Rally stand out from them I feel. Her choice of topics and words are unique and bring a smile to the readers face. She numbers her poems, though I don’t know if it is to keep track of her progress or just habitual.

From her poems I’ve read recently, I feel the poem she penned for Magpie Tales, titled “Who Am I?” is her best effort. It expresses a question that most of us can relate to, and it is presented in direct, yet unique manner. Another read I’d recommend from her budding space is “Envision”, which is a two verse set, each can stand on its own, and when read together makes the poem all the more beautiful. The question and answer style of presentation is catchy.

All her poems are worthy reads, and for a blogger just finding her feet, the returns are quite impressive. A nice blog to start following and to expect some nice poetry with each update.

The poetry is on right track, Rashmi, I’m admiring your simplicity… the blog could use a new template perhaps, some widgets to go with it as well… (Maybe like a visitor counter, or a slideshow for your awards, etc.) It’d give your blog a more welcoming look. There are sites like Btemplates which give you a wide range of templates. I’d also suggest you “label” your posts so the readers can search based on that.

Who am I?

I’m Leo; author of I Rhyme Without Reason, co-host of Review Tuesdays here at Jingle Poetry along with Someone is Special. Hope you enjoy reading about the blogs, and do go read them too. Rashmi, reading your blog was very nice, and it was really nice reviewing a blossoming blogger. Do let me know how you found it, or if I went wrong somewhere!
