The Wonders of Impossible Things (A Poem)

By Joyce Jacobo

[Author’s Note: It’s wonderful to be a writer!]

It is wondrous

   that we can write of impossible things

Like a cloud which twists

    into a happy face to make your day

Or of birds

    eager to wink at you as they sing of sunrises

Because we are writers

     we can describe waterfalls able to flow backwards

     or create characters who collect samples of rainbows

     to use as material for the patchwork patterns on quilts

In only a matter of words

     we can explore eternity

     visit the farthest reaches of space

     and transform into anything we wish

     all on a single page

    1. Thank you for the support! I would definitely like to self-publish some of my longer stories, and perhaps a few poetry collections. During college, I was able to get my work published in a few on-campus magazines, but I haven’t had as much luck yet when submitting my work to other magazines yet (although one of my pieces did get accepted in the San Diego Poetry Annual). Hopefully someday soon.


      1. Self publishing won’t make you rich, but it will help to build up a portfolio.
        It shows what you’re capable of and that you’re serious about it.
        I have noticed that people take me a bit more serious at least.
        So despite that it can be discouraging, I would still recommend it.
        If you ever need help with it, let me know!

        And of course, keep on trying with traditional publishing!

      2. Awww, thank you so much for the offer. I will continue working hard and doing my best. It really does make a difference, though, to have so much support, and to be able to help each other as part of a community of writers.
