Have You Ever? #submission #iamwriting #publishing

So you’ve submitted an article, a story, your masterpiece to X, Y, Z publishing. It’s your 1st, 10th, 100th…. submission. Anxious, nail biting, calm resolve like after the first date. Will I get a call? What will I do while I wait? It’s a good story. No Great! It’s not the money (never has been).Continue reading “Have You Ever? #submission #iamwriting #publishing”

Not Under The Tree #Emmanuel #Christmas #Hope

        On this dry orb called earth, women continue to beg for peace, hope for their children to survive, and yearn for love. There is one love that seeks to save and heal the lost His name – Emmanuel.

I woke in burning pain today the searing drewContinue reading “Go Deep #devotion”

All I Have Are Ashes #Akhmatova #poet #societalcancer

  I’ve cried for seventeen long months, I’ve called you for your home, I fell at hangmen’ feet – not once, My womb and hell you’re from.

There’reContinue reading “All I Have Are Ashes #Akhmatova #poet #societalcancer”

Not So Silent Night (#Oneshotwednesday)

“Save me” said in anguish “oppression make it cease” words chanted in the night alas no days of peace * A world mired in deluge fists full of abhorrent pain A light sent into the world groping for the common man *** A love light was unfurled delivered through  his hands a desperate call intoContinue reading “Not So Silent Night (#Oneshotwednesday)”
