The best #poetry books to #inspire and uplift you @Shepherd_books @BalroopShado

3 copies of Life & Soul on picnic table in forestHi everyone! I hope you’ve had a good weekend. After Mae Clair’s lovely Story Empire post on Shepherd for Authors, I got in touch, and today I have a post up with recommendations for five books of poetry that have stayed with me. You can find the page HERE. I list poets such as American Poet Laureate Kay Ryan, as well as one of my favourite Indie Poets, Balroop Singh. I’d be delighted if you could take a look and share the page. My latest book of poetry, Life & Soul, also gets a mention at the top of the page, so your sharing would help me get the word out on that too.

Thanks for all your support. I’d love to hear what you think of my recommendations in the comments below. Have a lovely day! πŸ™‚Β

Hi Harmony, those are all great poetry books and you’ve included The War Poets, my favourite poetry book of them all. I shared to Twitter and my Facebook Poetry group.

Best wishes Harmony. Sharing it right away. I look forward to reading your book sometime soon.


Hey. So yes, there I was, posted my book review on Amazon for Tell Me A Story when I got a recommendation for your book. How cool is that? I clicked to look inside. Loved what I saw: HOPE β€” about a Violet looking forward to the visit of a dear friend… and I’m enamored. Wow. Bought the book. So happy I did. Thanks. Will review when I’m done. ((ps. Posted this before with a lot more excitement the first time. Reader. But it didn’t take. The commenting is STILL not working in the reader. And I STILL forget.)) all… Read more »

Thanks for sharing your favs, Harmony. I’ve been meaning to sign up with Shepherd for Authors since Mae’s post. You’ve inspired me to get that done!

I forgot all about Shepherd. (Too much going on to think straight.) Headed there now…


Congratulations on “Life and Soul”, Harmony, and I also enjoy reading Kay Ryan. I’m not familiar with some on your list, so thanks for the heads-up.
