    Before the December of 2019, no one knew of COVID-19. No one knew how this tiny virus, somewhere in China, would turn the world upside down.

It was a tiny virus that disrupted the world. I sat at home, during shelter in place, while the news caused earthquakes in my head every time the TV was o... more

  • Little Luna

    by Alita L. A. Powell
    Why I Like Poetry The beautiful thing about words is they take on their true meaning when we need them most. No other time than when the words fill and spill onto that page have they arranged in the same staged way in my mind. Once out in the world, they're ready, awaiting the perfect, inevitable timing for someone to find their silver lining, and mould their own meaning to each sentence's syncopated syllables. So read away. Take what you nee... more

  • Bottled Memories: A Journey through Addiction and Early Recovery

    by David Ritter
    These stand-alone poems were written over many years. While individually they describe the conflicts associated with alcoholism, when read together they reveal a more complete picture of the destruction, depression, and chaos of addiction, as well as the peace, hope, and joy of recovery. Although most of these poems pertain to my life, it is my hope that other people will relate to them also. It’s not only my story but the story of so many others.
