Grandma’s Toadstool Pie !: a funny poem based on true events

by Vince Iuliano

When we were very small children, our father took my sister and I to visit an elderly family friend. This sweet older woman invited us into her kitchen for lemonade and butter cookies.

For years after, my sister and I played a little game. We described to each other the imaginary â??dish’ she had served us – making each re-telling more horrible than the last.

Spring Evenings in Sterling Street: Poems by Eliot Bliss

by Eliot Bliss

ELIOT (EILEEN) BLISS was a Creole writer born in 1903 in Kingston, Jamaica, a British colony at the time. She died, forgotten and neglected, in Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire, in December 1990. At her side was her lifelong companion, Patricia Allen-Burns, who had supported and taken care of her for 60 years.

The poems collected here were written from 1922 to 1931, and were found in 2004 in the apartment she had shared with Ms Allen-Burns.These poems reflect different stages and periods in Eliot Bliss’s life: There are poems that bring to mind the Caribbean, where she was born and whose memory she would always carry with her; others are dedicated to spiritual life; some to important literary figures, women who had an influence on her life.

MICHELA A. CALDERARO, an Associate Editor of “Calabash: A Journal of Caribbean Arts and Letters”, teaches English and Postcolonial Literature at the University of Trieste (Italy). Dr. Calderaro, whose critical works include a book on Ford Madox Ford and numerous articles on British, American and Anglophone Caribbean writers, is currently working on Creole writer Eliot (Eileen) Bliss’s biography.

After The Ban

Poetry as Memoir

My Conversation With God

by Adina Nicholas

There are often times where, we as people, might wonder where God is, why he is not intervening, or why there are so many harmful people. Yet if we openly seek God and listen we can get all of our questions answered; God may not come right out and say it but he will show you what you need to see. He is always around you showing his presence and love, just look at the trees swaying in the breeze, the sunset glistening in the water, the baby bird chirping in the nest, or even the busy bee gracefully floating from flower to flower. We may wonder why things happen the way they do, but we must understand that they happen because God has plans for us and as with any plan, there has to be good and bad events thoroughly detailed to the very end.

This poem was written as I sought answers in my own time of struggle and understanding. I pray that it can also help others that are in need of guidance or understanding. May God bless you for actively seeking him and his truth, Amen.
