A Ripe Moment

 

I gazed out of the window

and noticed these lovely red pomegranates,

so ripe, so fresh, ready to be touched, waiting to be tasted.

Heavily laden hearts,

red with rage,

ready to burst,

waiting to be shared.

Sharing is a secret meditation,

The business of the souls.

As  my hand  reached out for the fruit,

a few tear drops rolled down the cheeks,

Because everything speaks,

everyone is heavy.

So reach out and taste,

reach out and hear,

reach out and talk.

Because sharing is a prayer.

Because it says it all.

Who are we? We are writers. And here, in this space, we put pride and passion back into writing. We give ourselves and each other creative freedom and respect.

* We create an environment where content generation does not entail degeneration of inspiration and spirit.
* We create content that we believe in and identify with.
* We recognise that to create is always of more value than to berate.
*We critique without malice and arrogance.

This site is about us writers, what we stand for but more importantly, about creating something valuable, inclusive, thought-provoking. In this space, we do not just stand for ourselves but for all those who listen to a compelling inner voice that tells them, "Create!"
