Thrilled to learn the Thailand cave rescue has been successful–all rescued! You can read more here: Thailand Cave Rescue Updates.
Wonderful news. The cooperation and bravery it took to put together such a feat!
Science and compassion came together with bravery.
No Tokens Journal declares it is “…a journal celebrating work that is felt in the spine” and it can be found here, at No Tokens Journal.
Reading that reminds me of what Emily Dickinson wrote about poetry, that “If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire could ever warm me, I know that is poetry.” (http://notable-quotes.com/d/dickinson_emily.html).
No Tokens publishes a print/ bound volume as well as an online journal, making it doubly interesting, in my opinion. They publish fiction, nonfiction, poetry, art, and “other,” which could include include plays, comics, graphic novels, interviews, etc.
The journal’s passion for great writing is evident, right down to when they declare they will ask for NO TOKENS (no submission fees) while they promise to be a journal:
“…featuring the words and artwork of all voices of the past, present, and future.”
I love this passion for words, stories, voices.
I think I will give them a try.
Thanks for reading!
What a pleasure to find an old rough draft of a poem on an old flash drive. I was looking for a document when I found this, simply titled: “Work on this poem.”
So I will work on this poem. I’m not sure about the rhetorical questions or who the “you” in the poem is, but I like a bit of mystery.
It starts like this…
wrap blistered feet.
Earthbound, I walk
How would I drive?
Bridges stop around curves,
hidden in the fog or dust
a glimpse of surprised faces
into the wide river of our poetry.
Where could I drive?
Then it goes on, but I won’t post more since I want to revise and rework to submit.
Thanks for reading.
