Winds Brings Gusts of Change
by Cindy Georgakas
[author’s site]

Blustery winds
accentuated by 
tempestuous chill in the air,
ignite tumultuous waters.  

The Raven takes flight
offering insight and healing power, 
flying, creating equanimity.  

Dark like the night
and full of light, holding death,
longevity and fertility;  where the circle of life

continues ….

holding space for the void, where creation is fertile.

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.

  2. Wow, Gabriela, I forgot about this poem I submitted and it was a lovely surprise this morning to re-read it. Isn’t it funny how life is fluid and changing and we re-read things when we too need to hear them again?! I truly appreciate the opportunity to share my work on this wonderful platform. Thank you so kindly and for a bright way to start my day. 💖

    Lovely piece Cindy. I especially liked:

    «Dark like the night
    and full of light, holding death,
    longevity and fertility; where the circle of life»

    Really tied nature and the cycle of life together so beautifully and love the Raven. A big congratulations on your new publication. Sending my love, and a big hug. Joni
