‘Abdu’l-Bahá said…: “All Art is a gift of the Holy Spirit. When this light shines through the mind of a musician, it manifests itself in beautiful harmonies. Again, shining through the mind of a poet, it is seen in fine poetry and poetic prose. When the Light of the Sun of Truth inspires the mind of a painter, he produces marvellous pictures. These gifts are fulfilling their highest purpose, when showing forth the praise of God.”
A new blog for Bahá’í Poets began yesterday. it sprang from a dialog on the Bahai-Writers list. The blog will accept poems and poetic prose from Bahá’í poets and writers. The blog will include many features and topic headings. So far the new Downloads page has three offerings available: Guidance to Poets, A Compilation of Use to Writers, and a brand new compilation not previously published, Poets… Poetic… Poetry. The About page that explains its purpose and reason for being hasn’t been written yet.
Please visit this new blog and share your thoughts.
