Poetry to fall in love with

Today I wanted to share with you some of the works of Christopher Poindexter – a poet I found thanks to a quote card that came with an awesome handmade skull I received for Christmas.

I started following him on Instagram and soon feel in love with his work – its super accessible, emotive and beautiful.

I read a lot of poetry when I was younger – from online teenage angst poetry forums to classics such as Sylvia Plath, John Keats, Emily Dickinson, Christina Rossetti and William Blake – mostly while I was at uni. But it’s been a while since I’ve read any modern poetry, and that’s why I’m so glad to have discovered Mr Poindexter and his bite sized poetry, which appears conveniently in my Instagram feed but stays in my mind for days.

I hope you fall in love, too.

  2. These are gorgeous, thanks for sharing them. I don’t usually read much poetry but this post made me want to change that. I’d love to hear more about some of your other favorite poems. x

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed them Pearl! I’m a firm believer that when it comes to art there is something for everyone – even people who say they never read poetry (or novels, or listen to rock n roll, or go to galleries, etc)

      I’d love to share some more of my faves – great idea!
