Hello, i love hearing people sharing their poetry feelings. What are your favorite blogs or websites which contain casual responses to poetry? A good example of what I'm looking for is the wondering minstrels.


- short source media - don't make me read beowulf (no offense, beowulf lovers)
- sincere, informal responses - anecdotes welcome!
- "hey, this feels like something from the internet from 15 years ago"
- (bonus!) nice comments section

not this:

- lots of memes/retweets/promos/videos
- insider baseball
- "oh, it's a poem and nothing else"
- "this reads like wikipedia"

i don't care:

- how often it's updated
- what kind of poetry
- what kind of feelings (doesn't have to be positive all the time)

This one is very local; the New Zealand poetry shelf.

The Paris Review has a column where poets recommend poems for people's dilemmas and queries. I've found some great poems via its recommendations.
