Search Engine Poetry: Sweet Planet Poems

She was the first blogger to make me laugh out loud, by asking me, on my About page, whether I was a man or a woman  – the question astounded me and was the beginning of my appreciation of the mind-altering value of blogging: the way others perceive us is often so different from the way we see ourselves.

Insightful and multi-talented, Monica of Sweet Planet Poems is one of my oldest blogging friends – and how grateful I am that she has stayed the distance! 🙂 She has a delightful sense of humour, a rare generosity of spirit and a passion for the natural world that infuses her enchanting blog and publications.

She is a tireless campaigner for the protection of wolves in their natural habitat and shares their mystique in her wonderful poems, videos and photos many of which she creates on her frequent trips to Yellowstone National Park.

Monica has woven this delightful found poem in response to my Search Engine Poetry Challenge – I see it as a mirror of all the good in her heart (even the “picking up dog poop” line. :-D)


And here are a few of my favourite posts on Sweet Planet Poems:

  1. That’s a cool found poem and you know I love wolves 😉 You’re spot on about how people perceive us – I was on another community website and known as GB – many people assumed I was male and it was very interesting how males are treated so differently to females – that’s why so many female authors in the old days (and maybe still) used male pseudonyms.

    • Yes, funny how gender gets in the way of our perceptions. I remember the first commercial flight i was on where a female captain’s voice came over the intercom system – how everyone (men and women) looked up in surprise. Happy to say that no-one seems to bat an eyelid these days 🙂

  2. Dear Bluebee, I am simply blown away by this beautiful and generous post. Thank you! Only my dogs would have such lovely things to say, and they don’t blog. I’m also interested in the posts you chose. These are special to me, too, although I don’t understand why you didn’t include the “picking up dog poop” poem. Bluebee, you are the best!
