I have several blog crushes. These are the writers I look forward to reading, who stir my thoughts, who amaze me with their evocative language, their unusual ideas, whose sites are designed with flair, and perhaps because they offer comments on visits to me.
As an aspiring poet dabbler, I lean toward more florid language, descriptions of the indescribable, of my deepest urges, my unspoken feelings. I think the person whose site stirs these deep reservoirs the most consistently is Yemanja. If I had a can of spray paint, I’d go to the local highway overpass in the middle of the night and signal for all to see: Garnet is swooning over Yemanja.
Her blog is beautifully designed, always pleasant to visit. She delves into the spiritual realm of passion with her sensual, rich poetry and photos. I like that she doesn’t shy from expressing her deepest, most subtle desires, and that she does so with such accessible, florid poetry. Yemanja stirs passions I never knew I had, and that’s saying quite a bit! (ahem, I refer to my birth given attraction to men) She walks a fine line, and does so with aplomb. She also seems to understand where I am coming from on my blog as well, and expresses so in her comments. Thank you Yemanja, for your beautiful, inspiring existence.
