Little Miracles

In our poem of the week, Gina Valdés offers this vivid description of her experiences on the roads of California with some good Samaritans who stop in their “smooth-running carcacha” to get her “not-so-smooth-running carcacha” going again.  This poem is from the just released Winter Issue of Third Wednesday.  That’s not Gina’s car in the photo but it looks like the car I see in her poem.


Miles To Go

And miles to go before I sleep…

Coming soon to coffee mugs and t-shirts everywhere – the copyright on Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening expired at midnight on January 1st, 2019. The poem was written over twenty inspired minutes in the summer of 1922 after Frost had been up all night working on a different poem that wasn’t going well.

In Late November

Our Winter issue includes poems from our Second Ever One Sentence Poetry Contest, including this one, one of three winning poems chosen by our editors from among the nearly three hundred poems that were entered.  We’re already looking forward to our Third Ever One Sentence Poetry Contest, beginning in Mid-February.
