My Dear Readers,
Vita Brevis just published Pain & Renewal: A Poetry Anthology. I have two poems included: The Dark Flag of Pain and Autumn Healing.
“Pain & Renewal features a collection of incredible voices — from Pulitzer and Pushcart prize winners to brand new poets, it’s filled with moving poetry about the highs and lows of the human experience.”
You can get the digital version here.
And you can get the print version here.
Here is a snippet from my poem Autumn Healing:
..this autumn stretches purple shadows
over unending fields of sweet corn and hurt souls
it brings from the depth the lacustrine goddess
who heals all wounds with yesterday’s mirth…
@Gabriela Marie Milton

(((Hugs))) right back at you, Dear!
Thank you so much.
You’re most welcome!
Exciting news! Many congratulations!!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart 💜
You are very welcome. Good luck!!
Thank you so much for your kindness. My best wishes to you.
Congratulations Gabriela! It is a great honour and you well deserve it! It’s a very powerful image that you conjure in those verses and it really reaches in deep into the soul when you are reading it! Beautiful! I greatly admire your work and the way you work!
All the best,
Muchas gracias, thank you, Francisco. I’ll try a thank you in Catalan next time 🙂
Seriously, I am humbled and thrilled by your congrats. It moved me that you read that stanza too and you liked it. I greatly admire your work (that’s an understatement). Your opinion means a lot to me, Francisco.
Have a beautiful rest of the evening in beautiful Valencia.
Thank you Gabriela, you too, have a lovely Sunday and I truly appreciate your words! All the best, greetings from sunny Valencia,
Greetings received. Thank you. I am thinking of stealing the sun 🙂
Good idea! hehehe…
Oh, I can send you in exchange some ghostly looking trees and hauling winds; winter images that one paints in his/her mind when reading Wuthering Heights, but I am afraid you will not trade 🙂
They sound fascinating but…I think I’ll stick to the sunshine of Valencia, the blue skies, no shadows and the Mediterranean Sea!
As you wish matador 🙂
This is great news, congratulations! Looks like a great collection.
Thank you so much, River. It does, doesn’t it? What are you working on now?
You’re welcome. Me, I’m just keeping busy. Working on my own poetry and short stories as well as getting the next publications in order for Potter’s Grove Press.
That’s great River. Looking forward to your new publications. It sounds like you have plenty of work to do.
How cool, Gab. Congrats.
Thank you, Bo. It means a lot to me.
My most sincere thanks. Did you make your site private?
Well deserved, congratulations!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, my dear. How should I call you? 🙂
Beautiful poetry Gabriela, you can call me Rene! <3
Thank you so much, Rene. I am please to “meet” you and I want you to know that I greatly admire your poetry.
Have a lovely week ahead.
Thank you kindly, I appreciate the inspiring words. Have a beautiful day!
Right back to you 💕❤️🤗

Congratulations! Absolutely wonderful.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Nico. Peace and blessings to you.
Wow my dear G!!! How wonderful! Such a huge congratulations to you, this has given me a smile to go with my coffee. Have a magnificent Sunday!!
Thank you so much, my dearest Rachel. If you are smiling. I am smiling too. I really appreciate your kindness, generosity, and good wishes.
I hope you are feeling better and your ankle is healing. Please let me know. I am worried about you Rachel.
Wishing you a lovely week.
Not only are you a magnificent writer but you have a magnificent heart. I am doing ok thanks Gabriela. I had to cancel a camping trip (bit tricky on crutches), but I do think my ankle is healing, I am slowly starting to put some weight on it!
Best of luck for classes starting again tomorrow. And how is that moon treating you now??!!
Rachel, I do not know if you wanted to cancel the camping trip, but I think you did the right thing. I am glad to hear that your ankle is healing.
Ay, the weight. Don;t worry sweetheart. It will go away once you start walking again. Just don’t eat too many chocolates 🙂
Yes, classes are starting tomorrow. I am almost ready. I may have to work 3-4 hours today till I get everything under control, but that’s fine.
The moon left. I can’t be more happy.
Sending you lots of love, my fabulous Rachel.
Take good care of you and thank you for everything.
Smiling again. I meant put weight on it as in stand on it, but you are right, I should stay away from chocolates too! 😂.
You work so hard dear G, I am glad the moon has finally retracted. Who needs a sticky moon, on top of everything else?
haha! Sorry. My mistake. I apologize for that.
Yes, I do work hard. I am about to finish my poetry manuscript and send it to the publisher. Then I have to focus a bit more on my academic work.
Love, hugs, flowers. Let me know what else I can send you sweetheart.
Your wishes are the best thing I could receive. I’m lucky to get them. I send mine to you too xxx
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Lauren.

Amazing, Gabriela. I’m so happy for you. Your poetry is stunning, and it doesn’t surprise me that two of your poems have been selected for the anthology that includes award winners. I have my copy!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the congrats and for the beautiful comment. It warms my heart. I will always remember your support and I will always be grateful to you. Do you remember you shared my poem “Andalusian Resurrection” on your site? You made me so happy that day.
I am still happy about that.
Wishing you the best weak ever
I remember. I love that poem. You are a talent to behold. 🙂
Thank you so much.

I did not hear from you in a long time. I hope everything is well. I also hope you know my proposal stands.
Sending you plenty of love.
