Story and Poem of the Week and Inspiration Point
Posted by airyfairy on Fri, 13 May 2022
The longer days and warmer weather has definitely brought something out in ABC Talers - there's been some cracking stuff on the site this week.
That being said, one poem in particular stood out for me. Our Poem of the Week is 'Stories I won't tell you' by london_calling79. It is a visceral piece, digging down into the realities of a particular kind of grief. It pulled me into its narrative, and although I immediately wanted to read it again, it was a while before I could. It's marvellous. Stories I won't tell you. | ABCtales
Story of the Week is writing that manages to be informative, thought-provoking, wry and heart-warming all at the same time. Some of you will be aware of the pieces Marandina has written about his son, who has been living in Russia, and about the fears and tensions that has recently brought. 'A Final Message From Moscow' is such a thoughtful piece about world events, but is also a father's very personal viewpoint. It too is a very special read. A Final Message From Moscow | ABCtales
