Farming Life [Poetry]

A white farmhouse well back from the road:

a large grey dog dozes on a long wooden veranda

at the feet of a young boy plucking on a dulcimer;

the leathery face of his mother appears briefly

in the kitchen window;

and, off in the distance, his father and tractor

dig furrows in the land.


Winter Contest | Two Winners for Handmade Journals

Because our last contest focused on creative writing specifically, this time we want the theme to be even broader so anyone who couldn't enter the first time whether because of theme or time constraints can now. We just want to excite you about submitting here! Any creative work is welcome (in any genre or creative form), but also this time you'll be able to enter the drawing with any submission allowed our blog.
