Spotlight Book Review – ‘The Sound of Brilliance’ by Ingrid

I Write Her

Huge shoutout to Ingrid for a wonderful review! Her continued love and support of our efforts is appreciated. THANK YOU!!

I’ve just finished readingThe Sound of Brilliance, an anthology of poems from ‘The Short of It’ series edited bySusi Bocks.As Susi herself states of the book:

This publication aims to find people with an interest and talent for micro-writing, whether their preferred form is poetry or stories, expressing themselves in 150 or fewer words. The other goal is to become an outlet for those desiring to read short bursts of meaningful expressions.

It’s a great idea, because many people lead hectic lifestyles, and can perhaps only spare a few minutes per day to read something at their leisure. Susi has curated this collection in such a way as to ensure that even the shortest time spent reading will be meaningful.

Spotligh Poetry – Beginning, Middle, End – A poem by Susi Bocks (I Write Her)

I Write Her

by chance
life begins amongst strangers
a start of birthed possibilities
propelled without consent

entering this world
substantive expectations spur entities on
with an unconscious hope for empathy and guidance

yet living is a potluck
one possibly enjoyed
but for them
probably not

filled with variables beyond their control
with only but a few moments
bent favorably in their direction

too soon
the barely living
trudge towards the inevitable
a half-achieved existence for most

with regret
many pass
with tears
they leave in agony
their death
the unfortunate finish they’d not hoped for

Eugi's Causerie

Introducing the first anthology produced by The Short of It. This anthology features the brilliant work of 41 poets and writers. The pieces within these pages are the best of those submitted and showcased on The Short of It online magazine.

The Short of It is the brainchild of none other than our fellow blogger, Susi Bocks, of I Write Her.

I am proud to present the “best of the best.

The anthology contains 120 pieces in a variety of forms and styles. They are astute observations about living, emotions, and our world. I hope they will leave you sighing, as they did me, having been touched by the artistry in every writer’s words. I know they gave me many deep impressions with their sweet succinctness.

For those interested in being featured on The Short of It, it will open for submissions on July 1st! I look forward…
