Red Thread Poets – Glorify God – Honour Poets

 

WHAT IS RED THREAD POETS?

more than a poetry platform!

Red Thread Poets is a gathering place for contemporary poets and songwriters under a Mandate from our Triune God, our FOUNDER, with the express purpose of glorifying God.

 

The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it. Psalm 68:11 KJV

 

We support God’s plan to bring about the Government of God on the earth and, wish to inspire all those interested in all that our awesome God is doing.

We honour all poets and songwriters, and we especially recognise that they are inspirational in providing wisdom, understanding and knowledge essential to living in these times. We love and respect the writers’ exploration of their own lives and the lives of others in their writing, the risks they take being open and transparent, and their desire to lift others up through their walk on the ‘write side’.

Only a small number of Poets appear on this Home Page – go to POETS & POEMS for all Poets.     NOTE that Poets appear randomly on a rotation in both places.

Enjoy a poem when you arise each day, or anytime 24/7 …  AND refer us to a poet you love … Oh yes – bookmark this page!! Also see the Search icon above.

TIPS from our FOUNDER: don’t rush … savour … make an appointment with yourself to come back … then anticipate, re-immerse, and savour again … repeat!
