We passed the 400,000 mark on May 29! This milestone is a tribute to writers and readers in celebration of the community we have become. To each and every one that has graced Whispers in some way. I can't find words to express my gratitude.
Many of you have actively promoted our online journal, which am humbly grateful for. Though I opened the door, it is those of you that walked through that door that have made this milestone possible. Special thanks to Inge Wisdijk and Jack Horne, my co-editors! We wouldn't be celebrating without them. I hope you take time now and then to thank them for their efforts.
TROUBLE LOGGING INTO WHISPERS—
From Jack Horne--I've done a bit of research and found a solution that worked for me. Apparently this sort of problem can be cured by clearing the cache and cookies on the computer. So, I did that and was able to post a comment, it might be worth passing that on to anyone else who has this problem.
Also, please us the sign in box at the top right of the main page unless you are already logged in from another gmail site. This will help assure that you don’t lose any comments.
CLOSING THOUGHTS FROM YOUR EDITOR--
It is through writing we pour our souls onto paper, hoping we will connect with others. Our international family allows us to learn more about other cultures, countries, writing styles… It is that shared experience we find new horizons and new friends. What a gift my writing friends are!!!

stored in music and love.
Tradition dances with poems
It is a blessing to be a part of this writing community. I hope you can spend time immersed in the diverse poetry on a wide array of topics found at Whispers. Please consider commenting and or checking the boxes below the poems. You do not have to be logged in to check the boxes. It still lets contributors know that their poetry is being read.
Wishing all of you the best with your writing journeys. I hope you find the joy in working with other writers and editors.
