Your Editor's Thoughts--By Karen O'Leary--United States

Dear Whispers’ Family,

What a pleasure to publish some unique experiences this month. Sharing history for our journal, we link past, present and future.  As we travel with others, we enrich our lives in an encouraging and gentle vision that I hope is the hallmark of Whispers.

Our interactive journal is made possible by my co-editors Inge Wesdijk and Jack Horne. I am so grateful to them and all our contributors for bringing unique voices that give our readers a variety of poetry and information each month. 

It is a pleasure to introduce twelve new writers to Whispers this month
           
                                    Luke Samra, United States
                                    Valentina Cano, United States
                                    John Grey, United States      
                                    Bruce Mundhenke, United States     
                                    Ed Higgins, United States  
                                    Ruth C. Rehberg, United States
                                    Lloyd Wayne Russell, United States
                                    Mysti S. Milwee, United States
                                    Nell Dalton, United States
                                    Carl Scharwath, United States
                                    Lee Robertson, United States    
                                    Peter Magliocco, United States       

Please stop by and welcome and encourage them to continue to be a part of our online journal/poetry community.

Writing is an interactive experience, so we hone our writing skills to make it possible to reach out to our international audience.  I hope you stop by and share some thoughts.  If you have any suggestions for an enriching experience, please contact me at karenoleary1956@gmail.com.  Wishing all of you the best!

Blessings,

Karen O’Leary
Whispers’ Editor

  3. Welcome to all new contributors! I enjoyed to read your work, and then I mean all the poetry of all writers who have shared their poetry with Whispers. Every month I'm struck by the diversity of the unique style each writer presents their poetry. It makes the World of Words a fascinating experience.

    Happy Easter,
    Inge

    1. Dear Inge,

      In our 5th year, I still am awed by the "diversity and unique style" you address above. We are a mosaic of different talents, each piece needed to complete the whole. Thank you for all you do to as part of our editor team.

      Blessings,
      Karen

  6. Happy Easter. Speaking of Resurrection Day, it has been a soul lifting experience writing and sharing with those who are members of Whispers. Just wanted to thank you for the joys it has afforded me. If you know the old Christian hymn "Love Lifted Me", that is what I feel when I come here.
