Red Clay Pot written by: Anagha Agnes   I am a Maverick lost in the White World A poor red clay pot trapped among the porcelains It’s White and White around and it terrifies my soul to the core They and me are alike, fragile as a graphite pure, brittle and polished. I wonder what makes me obscure Is it the red colour I bear the colour of blood, the colour of revolt. is it the smell I unfurl the […] The post Red Clay Pot appeared first on Spillwords ..read more

I Wonder written by: Cindy Georgakas   I wonder…. Church pews, Stained glass, Shattered memories past. Paying our respect to a life lived fast, In a church he…… never stepped into. I wonder…. Praying for forgiveness. Drinking from the tinged chalice, sins forgiven, to repeat again. Singing Amazing Grace. I kneel at the altar, glass cuts, blood drips. Sins of my father forgiven. I scratch my head. I wonder…. Am I the only one that feels this schism? Work hard, […] The post I Wonder appeared first on Spillwords ..read more

Passages Passing On written by: Gerry Stefanson @gerry_stefanson   Not shifting from grade eight to nine. More like ninety miles an hour, down a dead end street overtaking the undertaker. “cramming for the finals” as you shuffle your given spot on the pew. Asking forgiveness from all non-Christians, turned to this page. Norse called it crossing the Rainbow Bridge, call it whatever you want. Most of us can’t call it anything. “let’s no go upsetting the kids”- eh! nary a […] The post Passing On appeared first on Spillwords ..read more

Waiting for a Message written by: Liz deBeer @debeerliz   A florescent yellow-green tennis ball peeks from under dark emerald leaves, demanding me to stop. Damn it! I don’t have time for this, Al! If I slow my lunch-time race-walk aka rage-walk, I’ll be late. Fury bubbles up now, igniting the loop that threatens to erupt when some asshole leaves the office copier jammed. Or at the jerk who parks in my spot. And especially at Alden for leaving me […] The post Waiting for a Message appeared first on Spillwords ..read more

Another Day (Good For The Whole) written by: S.D. Kilmer @SDKilmer   Woke too early, couldn’t get back to sleep. It’s just like me, early morn’ and I’m in deep. Watching videos on the war. Writing poetry, can’t get back to sleep. It’s just another day here. These are the things we do. While maintaining our material life We try to do it all without strife. And we’re feeding the life of our souls. Such labors are good for the […] The post Another Day (Good For The Whole) appeared first on Spillwords ..read more

A Morning in June written by: Mary Crane Fahey   A morning in June we two sit in Adirondacks on the hill overlooking the lake Our bodies and minds wrapped in its blue serenity     waiting like before A neighbor’s boat chugs its way to the small island where bass fishing is good In the marina boats bob gently And hummingbirds quaff nectar from bee balm blossoms We talk of weather, weekend visitors, a neighbor’s looming cloud of uncertainty […] The post A Morning in June appeared first on Spillwords ..read more

It’s Never Too Late

It’s Never Too Late written by: Dianne Moritz   As a writer, I found success late in life. Although I’ve been writing since childhood, I never dreamed I could actually publish anything. Still, life is full of surprises: creativity blossoms, connections are made, epiphanies happen, then, suddenly, it veers off in a direction previously unimaginable. In my mid-thirties, I felt dissatisfied and frustrated, so I went into therapy. I found a therapist who encouraged me to jot down my feelings […] The post It’s Never Too Late appeared first on Spillwords ..read more
