To Winds – by Frank Esposito

Poetry is the rain that tails my past
and water that wells my dreams
the crest that imprisons my future
and the drawing bridge that cries it’s screams
the present sounding bell that rings

and tells of what has or might have been
is all but poetry
that in me grins
and brings my heart
to winds

Contributors wanted!

We are looking for contributors for a brand new anthology which will be published in the Summer of 2015.  The working title is  Passing From Life to Afterlife. An Anthology of Poems, Short Stories And Essays.  

This is a great opportunity for unpublished authors to get their work published and their name out there without the hassle usually associated with publishing.  It is also a chance for established authors to gain extra FREE publicity for their other work.

There are NO COSTS involved. I will edit it and will have the cover art professionally designed.

The anthology will be published as a FREE EBook.  Meaning that rather than receiving royalties, all contributors will benefit from the promotional value…

Deadline for submissions is January 10th 2015.

Go to http://www.ingridhall.wordpress.com for more information and to contribute

Circus Love by Valeri Beers

I taste

sticky sweet

cotton candy

kisses

I smell

hay

popcorn

smoke

animals

I see

lions lined up

I hear

trainer shouting

whip cracking

I sneak

stares

at you,

and feel

the same

excitement

&

uncertainty

when

I see

the acrobats

fly so high

my heart has no net
