Pearl of a read: good blog worth checking out

I avoid reading poetry unless forced to do so at gunpoint. Naturally there are a few acceptations. Bukowski, Du Fu, a few more, and assorted hiku (lets not get academic and call it poetry). A while back I’ve discovered a new addition to these acceptations in the blogosphere: Polka Dots & Pearls Green Tea Diaries. She (I’m assuming from the poems that the author a she) writes with a delightful mix of humour, delicacy, brevity, and punch.  I find her ability to keep the words constantly polished, sharper and always on the mark to be awe-inspiring. I’m sure Bukowski would have brought her a beer and Li Bai would shared his wine in acknowledgment (not that I can speak for imortals).

I would of course go on and on about this blog but what would be the point? The whole idea of a post like this is to get people to see for themselves. Not that I’m trying to chase away traffic but this blog is a bloody good read. Specially if you are always in a hurry. Like me.

  1. Good to know that I’m not alone in thinking so ๐Ÿ™‚

    polkadotsnpearls: You are welcome ๐Ÿ™‚ and thank YOU for the wonderbah writing ๐Ÿ˜€ Btw, any chance you’ll switch your blog theme back to something resembling your old theme? The pearls and the dots picture catches the mood very well..


      1. I know the feeling. Where did you get that picture though? Couldn’t think of a better image to capture the feel of your blog.


  2. The thing that most impresses me about her writing is the sheer wit in every line. Also I have to agree with Cerno, the old theme was fantastic.


  3. T: Totally agree with you on that. It takes a lot of talent to put out that kind of sharpness on a regular basis. BTW, who is it that your blog is now locked up?

    slpmartin & Chavie: You are very welcome ๐Ÿ˜€
