My Top Ten Favorite Poets of Instagram

Those closest to me know that I have always had a love for writing. I’ve been writing since I was a little girl, but my love for poetry grew over the years and eventually, I began writing my own. I haven’t shared it with many people, but I do want to share it all soon (be on the lookout for more relating to this!)

As social media grew over the years, I have discovered so many talented writers through Instagram. I truly see social media as a very positive thing. While of course there are negative things about it, I find that for myself, social media keeps me in touch with friends and family, it inspires me, and it is a space for me to share whatever is on my heart. I try to use my platforms wisely and to share content with intention. Helping people is such a big goal for me, and if I could do that through my writing, nothing would make me happier.

When it comes to writing and poetry, I believe that there really are no rules. You don’t have to go by the book and do what everyone else is doing. I often write short little poems in my notes on my phone, and they may not rhyme or have a certain number of stanzas, but to me, it’s still poetry. I have always loved the way that writing can resonate with so many people. It often makes people feel less alone in this world. People can interpret words in different ways, and this can be helpful because they can then relate the words to their own personal lives. I love that there is a whole community of poets on Instagram, whether they are anonymous or open with their identity.

Today, I wanted to share my top ten favorite poets on Instagram. I follow so many poetry pages, so it was a bit difficult to narrow it down, but these are the pages that I chose to share with you today!

In no particular order…

@markanthonypoet

I absolutely love this poet because he often writes about love. His words are very encouraging and uplifting, and they bring me so much comfort. I love many of his short poems because although they may seem simple, they make me feel the most. Mark has multiple books including “The Beautiful Truth” and “True Love.”

@loveaprilgreen

I think that April may be one of my all time favorite poets on Instagram. She always words things so beautifully and I love the way that she focuses so much on personal growth and self-love. I find her poems to be very inspiring as well. I resonate with her words very often, and I always look forward to seeing what she creates. April also has three books titled “Bloom for Yourself” “Bloom for Yourself II: Let Go and Grow” and “Becoming a Wildflower: Poetry and Prose for Courage.”

@atticusxo

Atticus is well known in the poetry community. He is an anonymous poet and a New York Times Bestselling author. I have been following Atticus for quite some time now, and he has remained a favorite of mine. I highly recommend reading his beautiful words if you have not done so already. He has written multiple books including “The Truth About Magic” “Love Her Wild” and “The Dark Between Stars.” He also has a collection of tees, hats, jewelry etc. at his online store!

@j.ironword

Another poet I’ve been following for a while now! I absolutely love the way that this poet shares simple yet beautiful truths that we often forget. He very clearly pours his heart out into his words, and I always enjoy seeing his new posts! Check out his books “Abstract Heart” “She is Me” and “Live Loud, Love Loud.”

@beautaplin

I think that Beau was the first (or one of the first) poets I ever discovered on Instagram. I have one of his books, and I have always adored his writing. It is hard for me to explain why his poems speak to me so much, but it is so clear that every word was and is written so thoughtfully, and the end result is always captivating. Beau has many books, but to name a few: “Bloom” “Here at Dawn” and “Worlds Of You.”

@arianapoetess

What I love about Ariana is the way that her words truly speak to my soul. Her poetry is inspiring, and I love the theme of her content. Her photos are romantic and I love the simplicity and beauty of the flowers in many of her posts. Her words can bring peace, and when I read her poetry, I find myself sitting still for a moment to take in what I had just read.

@dthomasquotes

I have recently discovered this poet and fell in love with each post I would see. I love that Dane shares his poetry as well as little snippets of his personal life on his page. He keeps his posts very positive, which I love! I always try to keep my life positive, even on social media, so it is refreshing to see his content. If you are interested, Dane has a few books to check out: “In a World of Wishes” “Black and Blue” and “Light in the Darkness.”

@rafpoetry

I have found this poet somewhat recently, and I always look forward to seeing his poetry. His words are often simple yet motivational and stunning. He shares words of love and light, and they absolutely warm my heart.

@the.ace_

As a writer and influencer, Ace shares simple and short lines of poetry, and I really like when his posts show up on my feed. Although the lines are short, they can still resonate with the reader, and they are great daily reminders that I believe everyone should hear.

@priyakannan.offl

Another favorite poet of mine! She frequently shares short poems and statements that are always very inspiring to me. She will usually write longer poems in her captions, and I love the simplicity in her content’s theme as well. The words shared on this page make me feel a mix of emotions, and I think that great poetry and a great writer will do that to you. They makes you think, and their words make you feel.

These are just ten of my favorite poets on Instagram. I have so many more that I could have shared in this post, but I’ll save that for another day! I highly recommend checking out and supporting each of these poets and their work! You won’t regret it!

It is difficult to explain my love of poetry, but what I can say is that reading someone else’s words and having them resonate with your soul feels like magic. It feels like someone understands the words you are trying to say, so they create poetry out of it. Poetry is made from love, pain, and simply living life. It takes a special kind of soul to be a poet, for poets can reach deep into their souls, feel each and every emotion, and put them together in a way that makes readers feel seen, understood, and inspired.

Thank you so much for reading! Until next time!
