A Walk in Winter
by Timothy Price
[author’s site]

Mountains blush from
Sunlight’s kisses
Day bids all goodnight
Clear sky cold
Dressed in blue
Tries on pink under gray

Nighttime dresses darkness
Pulls on black same old way

Branches curl
Under clear cold night
Circles sliver moon
Cranes settle, evening calls
Breeze whips up spirits
Choked on dust as twilight twirls

Only hoot owls dare to fly
Silently through ghostly swirls

Into path’s darkened way
Clawing fingers
Reach through tangled briars
Tearing clothes
Scratching skin
Screeching voices call

Shake loose clinging hold
Standing free blood drops fall

Reflections dive deep
Into swift waters stilled
Winter’s magic ethereal light
Walks on water, river sprites
Tiptoe under thin light gleaming
Watchful sliver moon alone

Slips between shadows, darkness
Chimeric light leads me home

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.

    Tim this piece is beautiful in it’s awareness of the beautiful world around you but taking to an ethereal side.
    These words are particularly calling to me:

    «Clawing fingers
    Reach through tangled briars
    Tearing clothes
    Scratching skin
    Screeching voices call»

    Beautiful work my friend. Congratulations on this new publication. Sending love, Joni
