A Poem & Woman: Splendor and Sorrow: | Love Poems and Poetic featured in Portland Book Review

The Penitent Magdalen, Georges de la Tour, Public Domain

A New Poem

(excerpt from my poem You Night to be published in January in an new anthology).

In Woman: Splendor and Sorrow: Love Poems and Poetic Prose, author and poet Gabriela Marie Milton takes the reader on a deeply personal journey across the globe and into her heart. The verses delve into themes ranging from love to loss to feminism, all of them clearly inspired by the author’s own experiences. The palpable emotion and unique turns of phrase ensure that this will be a book that will stay with you long after you set it down…

In “The Six O’clock Café,” Milton’s prose takes a turn toward the fictional, combining poetry, magical realism, and mystery to tell a short, impactful story. Once again, loss takes center stage in a highly creative way.

This collection of poetry and poetic prose will be a hit with fans of contemporary poetry looking for something that doesn’t hold back from sharing its innermost emotions and for those who enjoy creative word play.

Stemming from a Twitter-based prompt, the participants of FromOneLine write poetry or very short prose based around a single offered line prompt – and the results have been incredible.

Excerpt from one of my poems:

Don’t turn your back.
I am the glue that holds together the baked sands stuck on
your skin during endless torrid summers.
Sometimes I look like a four-leaf clover sitting on the lapel
of your black coat on the 15th of every month.
Other times when it is dark, you call me Selena, and you
make my twelve fingers knead your ecstasies and plant
them in whispering tombs.

Remain.

Newsletter

Dear Readers.

I hope everyone is doing well.

I plan to create a newsletter to help our literary community better understand the role of social media in our creative endeavors. At the same time – depending on what you want to showcase – the newsletter will help you understand what social media platform is best for you, and what strategies you should employ to advance your goals and get your work widely noticed.

To that end:

No anecdotal stories will be used. Data will come strictly from rigorous academic research done in Schools of Communications across the world. That ensures the credibility of the conclusions presented to you.

The newsletter will be published once every two months.

You will have the opportunity to sign up for the newsletter on my blog in February 2022.

First issue will come out in March 2022.

I will provide you with more information at the end of January 2022.
