Poetry – Winter 2023-2024

A Note from Poetry Editor, Emily K. Michael: For our Winter 2023-2024 Poetry section, we offer you a poem by our youngest contributor. Vala, age 10, who submitted a poem (written when she was nine) about her disabled sister, and it is a bright light for us at Wordgathering. We love Vala’s work because it gets at the heart of what poetry is for: a call to beauty and a new way to imagine the world. It’s a brief and clear example of how poetry can change the world.
