We are excited to get a submission from poet Sudeep Adhikari – ‘It Did Not Rain This Whole Winter’ and ‘Grunge and Conscience’. Sudeep’s poetry generally revolves around the theme of seamless continuity between human-psyche and nature, and shows an overarching affinity for the non-philosophy of unity, multiplicity, indivisibility and nothingness. Please check out Sudeep’s work featured on “WE ALL BLEED THE SAME”: http://spiltinkpoetry.tumblr.com/post/144847697733/it-did-not-rain-this-whole-winter-sudeep

Anca is also an audio-visual poet.

Here is a youtube video poem recital of Anca’s work, which was recited, filmed, directed and edited by the artist herself. Hope you will enjoy it!

Anca Mihaela Bruma is an educator, lecturer, performance poet, eclectic thinker, mentor with staunch multi-cultural mindset and entrepreneurial attitude. She considers herself a global citizen, having lived in four continents. Her eclecticism can be seen in her intertwined studies, she pursued: a Bachelor of Arts (Romania) and a Master of Business Administration (Australia).

The author labels her own writings as being “mystically sensual”, a tool and path for women to claim their own inner feminine powers. She uses poetics as a form of literary education, self-discovery and social engagement.

#Hope, Prevail

Beauty of Butterflies

I remember walking in haste
One sunny day in May,
As many of us often do—
Unattached from nature.
It was chance, I guess,
Or fate, I assume—though
I’ve always relied on the empirical,
That I stopped by this particular garden.
Rich in flowers and bushes,
It was like having an optical orgasm.
I fixated on a group of butterflies,
Five or six, resting on a bush with
Strange flowers. They were striking
Shades of red and purple and orange.
I found a connection with them.
Maybe I am a butterfly!” I thought.
Maybe cancer is like the lifecycle of a butterfly.
Maybe my life before cancer is like
The caterpillar before the butterfly.
I remember smiling for the first time
In ages it seemed. I had something
To look forward to, life as a butterfly perhaps,
Colorful and vibrant, after the cocoon of cancer.

Writing as Curiosity

Published online at Cadence Collective: Long Beach Poets.

Charles Banks, Jr, founder of Spilt Ink Poetry, was diagnosed with salivary gland cancer in December of 2012. After 9 months of remission, the cancer spread to his lungs.  On April 16, 2015, Charles passed away peacefully in his home in Long Beach, CA at the age of 26. He was surrounded by his family and friends during his final weeks. Thank you to everyone for your love and support during this difficult time. We are all so very heartbroken. We wished we could have kept Charles much longer. Please stay close; we will be continuing his work by featuring other poets and adding to his legacy by publishing his unpublished poems.

She moved to the United States at 2 years old, but a decision by her parents to begin a business moved her back to Africa where she spent time in many different countries with friends and relatives. after a brief stay in Long Beach, California at age 7, Jocelyn moved to Cambodia, where she attended English schools to continue her acclimation to the English language. After obtaining American citizenship in the 5th grade, she has permanently been in the U.S. Jocelyn’s poetry was featured in A Rose in the Name of Love, a collection of poetry with fellow poet Charles Banks, Jr. Jocelyn’s poetry has always highlighted the search of inner self through the innocent poetic voice of a lost young girl. These days Jocelyn spends her time raising her young son, Nathan and searching for her inner self.”
