Published Poetry On #amwriting #poetry 

Today I’m excited to share with you my first ‘published,’ piece of poetry not as a blogger or a guest post for another blog. The website which published my poetry is called Spillwords and I found them through Twitter.

Please take a look at the website there are many fantastic pieces of writing to explore. I know you’ve read this poem before a couple of times but I’m so pleased it became  published especially for my Grandma Reeder’s sake, as the poem is written for her. She is I believe, ninty-six-years-old and despite a few health issues this year, doing fantastic for her age.

Here’s my poem on Spillwords: Your Wrinkles Make You Beautiful

        I read it for the first time.It is a beautiful tribute.I liked how you related her life events which led to her maturity and now she adorns all those wonderful experiences on her face, the wrinkles speaks of them, the lovely memories, and beautifies her looks- the marks that tell of a life lived to her heart’s content! 🙂

    Congratulations, Amanda! I enjoy the poem and way the press shows it. In addition to appreciating wrinkles for what they truly mean and are, this line speaks to me in a special way: “Your hospitality made you beautiful.” There is beauty in hospitality–and the ones who shares it.
