POETIC BLOOMINGS is a Phoenix Rising Poetry Guild site established in May 2011 to nurture and inspire the creative spirit.


This is Poetic Bloomings — a place where poetry grows and flourishes in a supportive and encouraging environment.” 

This was our mission … our mutual vision.

Week-upon-week-upon-week, you grace us with your carefully penned words. You generously hearten and inspire. In short, you gift us with your gift.  We recognize that there are many venues where your words could be spent. We are deeply thankful to each of you for choosing to bloom in our humble “garden.”

Very sincerely,

Walt and Marie Elena
