Snowflakes Settling Here, Hot Summer Somewhere
Paper Poetry Bi-Weekly Newsletter for the timeline of February 6— February 19, 2021
Hi Readers, writers, supporters, haters,
I hope all is well at your end. I hope you enjoyed the last bi-weekly newsletter, which covered incredible words and stories from excellent writers contributing to Paper Poetry.
Here at my place, when I am looking outside, the snowflakes were flying around yesterday, but today, it seems like the sun is smiling. It is winter here in Toronto, but it is summertime in many places of the world. Here, I’m looking into the ice-covered porch; somewhere else in the world, people are enjoying the sunny beachside.
The gist is, beauty is around us; we just have to find it.
It seems like we might have to live with the virus, like any other disease, so we should find ways to cope with the evolving scenario. We have to find our little piece of happiness every day, breathing in breathing out.

Selected stories from the ‘Age of Empathy’
AOE is touching hearts and reaching to broader audience with excellent stories and we are grateful to share some of the incredible stories with our readers, selected by Aimée Gramblin.
AOE is looking forward to having submissions for their ‘Burnout’ prompt, mentioned in ‘Age of Empathy Call for #Burnout Submissions.’ Apart from the submission part, I loved the concept of taking a break from editing and publishing. Carolyn and Indubala, what do you think?
Also, look out for the February prompt of AOE, “February 2021 Age of Empathy Writing Prompt” and share your cheerful words for the prompt.
Poetry Series — ‘Ubuntu’
We have started our newest section, ‘Poetry Series,’ where Paper Poetry will be hosting a themed poetry series from a guest writer over four weeks. We are delighted to announce that James G Brennan, one of the fantastic poets in Medium, has agreed to join the initiative, writing on the ‘Ubuntu’ theme.
Please explore his 1st poem of the series, ‘Ubuntu Mbira.’
The next poem of the series is ‘Across Oceans of Hope,’ coming next week. Thank you, James, for your kind contribution and impressive words.
Please immerse yourself in the wonderful words from our talented writers here at Paper Poetry.
