Hi everyone,
I just wanted to make a short post to tell you all that, although I was nominated along with;
Eliza Segiet
John Drudge
Jeff Flesch
Phyllis P. Colucci
Karima Hoisan
Greg Massey
Ron Rowland
for Spillwords  Author of the Month and I am extremely thankful to everyone there at Spillwords for choosing me along with the others mentioned, I personally have decided to not ask for votes.
Thank you all for your great support of me here on WordPress for 11 years!!
You have made my blogging journey a very special and delightful experience, full of
friendship and learning and mutual support.
Thank you again Spillwords.com for publishing 8 of my poems.
I am eternally grateful to you all and for this honored nomination.

Here’s a  Cinquain for your viewing pleasure:)

Today
I felt the sting
of loving you too much
so allergic to loneliness
I died.

Love,
Karima

  3. Yes they do have names for shock from a very bad allergic reaction (not usually associated with love) except in my poem haha:)

    • Habibiti!! Good to see you here on WordPress:) Thank you so much for your sweet words of support…always. You too are an amazing soul..so perceptive, wise and open to the flow wherever you find it. Your poetry is always a delight, but just know that on Insta I need to type on a telephone..and it is very hard for me. I’m all thumbs but not coordinated thumbs haha.I’m afraid my comments are short , where here I can type on a keyboard. Blessings to you always dear Diana… When you have time, I hope you will check out my new singing Video..I think you will enjoy it..definitely dance-able :):) https://karimahoisan.com/2022/02/22/green-screen-the-youtube/ Let me know if it got stuck in your ear:):) 😘🤗🙏🌹🦋

    Congratulations, Karima! You are so deserving, your poetry is gorgeous, and I know you know how much it speaks to me. Every word, every line, every poem. It’s an honor to be named alongside you. Of course the poem is gorgeous, and speaks to me of the paradoxical quality of love, and the relationship love has to loneliness. For loving hard and deep takes great strength, and can, at times, be quite lonely. Wishing you a gorgeous rest of your week! ❤️🌸🌹🌺🙏

    Hello my dear creative lady. I am up late tonight did not know it was time to vote but glad I saw that it was. You are a most talented poet and you create alternative worlds with such beauty my friend. You don’t have to ask for votes Karima as if people want to vote for you they most certainly will. You have touched my heart since the first time I saw your work. You are a splendid poet with amazing depth and great visual descriptions. You didn’t have to ask to be nominated either sweetie. SpillWords wouldn’t have nominated you if they did not think you were an excellent poet. The team there does an amazing job and by nominating you they showed that they thought you were deserving. Please don’t leave us Karima, even if we don’t visit as often as we should because everyone gets overwhelmed it certainly doesn’t mean we don’t love and respect your amazing talent. I hope you know how much I care for you as a person but also as a poet. The beautiful worlds you create are just plain mesmerizing. Love you sweetheart and thinking about you tonight.

        Dearest Karima I can not get the green screen to play so I am going into your site to find it. I meant every word. I am amazed at your talent and the beauty of what you do. Your poetry is beautiful. Thank you for all the very kind words you said to me as they mean a lot. Know that I mean mine as well. You are special a shining pearl who does something unique and beautiful. Everyone can’t do or create what you do. Sending my love. I am going to try and find this on your site. Love and prayers, Joni
