You will be captivated with the words of Kelly Grace Thomas and how she weaves poignant stories with subtle boldness sprinkled with nuances of myriad emotions. Here is an excerpt from one of her poems that will grace the Second Anniversary issue.
By Kelly Grace Thomas
I meant to write you a poem.
To dedicate lines and rhythms,
secrets and whispers, to every memory
that makes me compare perfection
to all the other days.
To know that cracks in fences reveal more than just a glimpse
and that when you drew the sun, I thought we were really
the center of the universe.
I hold these moments in my cabinets,
under beds and
pressed between the pages of books.
Waiting for them to waltz again with the innocence they once honored.
Or perhaps they will slowly fade, like a photo taken out of focus, forgotten before finished.
