Stars above thy head
Shines light upon a dark soul
Reach thy hand and find
~ Haiku: Stacia Lynn Reynolds ~

We, as poets and poetess, express a unique intensity about us. This passion allows us to paint images of the world with our words, along with portraying emotions and ideals in our own styles and rhythms. Poetry is the beauty of our expression through allegory, symbolism, sound and meaning; formulating an imaginative verse to draw emotion or a particular response from the reader. We bring awareness to various subjects encountered through life, whether it be love, war, peace, poverty or prosperity. We construct and arrange our words in a way that leaves a permanent effect or thought to ponder upon. Our words are profound, powerful, exciting, imaginative and elevated in thought; thoughts that come deep within the soul and mind. Poet’s words dance within the minds and senses of those who read their words. The reader sees, feels, smells, tastes and hears each expressed vowel and consonant. We, as poets and poetess, have a unique talent, unique minds and a unique ability to convey the world around us.

We, at times, may seem to be peculiar people to the world, but when our words are read or spoken aloud, our passion is revealed, and a deeper understanding or view occurs. For this reason, Our Poetry Archive features the beauty of each poet or poetess and their words. Along with the featured poets, the introduction of “Poet of the Month” was birthed in April of this year, 2016. The purpose was to bring to light different poetess’ or poet’s views through a personal interview. It has been a great success, beginning with Ana Nedelcu, then Sandy Sass in May. For June, we are proud to present Poet Michael Marrotti’s interview, expressed in his own words. These are three very passionate people, with different backgrounds and way of life, but they all have one thing in common, the intensity and beauty of expression.

This June we are happy to introduce sixteen new poets from different parts of the world to our readers. Our Poetry Archive appreciates the support of each reader and poet. And for this we would like to extend our gratitude to poetess Alicja Kuberska of Poland for bringing in number of poets from Poland to our poetry journal. Your support is appreciated, and humbly asks for your continued involvement in our efforts to shine a light upon each poet as they reach for the stars.

Those who would like to participate in our upcoming numbers, please send at least three poems and a profile picture along with the explicit confirmation of your permission for publication in OPA well before the 21st of every month. Our mail address is
