The Colors of Love
by Joni Caggiano
[author’s site]

Pink am I, fresh and innocent with you
Opening like a virgin bud, giving birth to beauty
You are the intoxicating fragrance that pours over me every time you breathe
Gardenias and jasmine jumping in midair like babes on trampolines where nothing can stop us from flying
Sweet music pours from your mouth into mine, and we float in a yellow silk quilt made with the stories of our love 
I feel my heart beating as I dive into cerulean water with you
Red light surges outside the intensity of our oneness 

@Joni Caggiano

ABOUT US 

Welcome to MasticadoresUSA.

MasticadoresUSA was founded by Juan Re Crivello as part of Gobblers/Masticadores in 2021. Its current editor is Gabriela Marie Milton.

MasticadoresUSA features talented writers of poetry and short prose. We primarily publish writers who write in English, and are based in the USA. However, while the publication language remains English, we also welcome the work of our fellow writers from all over the world.

What do we want to bring to our readers? Edgar Allan Poe once wrote: Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words. This is what we are committed to bringing to you. And that’s not an easy endeavor. 

SUBMISSIONS GUIDELINES 

If you want to submit, please send your work – poetry and/or short prose – to gabrielamariemilton@gmail.com. In addition to the piece(s), you want to have published, we need your name, and the address of your site. Submit your work as a docx attachment – not in the body of the email. Limit your submission to two pieces.  We do not accept pieces longer than 300 words.

What are the themes that we are looking for? Surprise us!

However, MasticadoresUSA does not publish any work that contains racist, homophobic, sexist, and hate talk of any kind.

Looking forward to your submissions.

  18. Congratulations Joni for your beautiful poem being chosen for this wonderful site!! MasticadoresUSA permitted us to get to know each other!! I will always be grateful🦋

    In technicolor and passion with a bit of the child’s delight bouncing on the trampoline(I LOVE this image), you paint your canvas of love with such descriptive tenderness..I picture these lovers mixing their essences, their paint being poured into each other, the flowers turning into perfume…Oh Joni, I love how you totally captured me inside this piece.. Outstanding writing my fabulous poet- artista!!🌈❤️🤗🌹🔆💐
