I have always had an urge to write but it was only recently I convinced myself that I could. The poems on this site are my first attempts. I prefer to write in prose to rhyme. I intend to continue as it has given me more pleasure than anything else I have experienced. I strongly believe that we are all citizens of this world and we all deserve a fair chance at its spoils. If we take time to enjoy each moment as it comes we will all notice that we live in a wonderful world. I am interested in both Western and Eastern Philosophy, I am in love with nature and spend as much time as possible outdoors, inhaling the natural air and beauty all around. more »

    'What wonderful thought-provoking poetry! I thoroughly enjoyed all three poems by a person who can certainly call himself a deep-thinking and empowering poet. Each poem was a heart-felt message so clear and powerful in its simplicity. I felt a familiar desire when reading these poems; a desire to embrace the poet's understanding of achieving peace and harmony. His ability to use poetry so effectively to describe universal motivational principles is commendable.'

    This was written by the chief editor of Reach publishers.

    Bob Blackwell is a wonderful and inspiring poet. No word is comparable to his talent...
    his poems reflect the lives in this world, the beauty of nature, and many other topics that may seem ordinary but is compiled greatly and differently. Have a good day!

    I've read some of your poems and found them all meaningful. Although not strictly 'traditional', they are somewhat 'structured' and contentwise, they are great!

Best Poem of Bob Blackwell

! ! At Days End

As our sun sets,
our moon,
a citrus segment,
halfway to whole,
rises, on a
now retiring world.

Its warm amber glow
softens, calms, it’s
blush of orange, creeps
covers, warms, comforts;
it illuminates our view.

Days noise and bustle
lessens, stars appear,
moon now a silver piece,
brings nightfall, a peace,
a gentle whispered calm.

A stillness wrapped up
in starlight and secured
by moonbeams, has
no threatening shadows,
no noisy rising wants.

An empty mind holds no
sorrows, fears, concerns
or worries. ...
