Live Encounters Poetry & Writing December 2017

Poets and writers are custodians of fate who delve into the ebb and flow of life, pondering over the fertility and futility of mind and action, rescuing even the blasé from hara-kiri of the tongue. And they are often condemned to penury, living on the refuse of others’ whims. Beauty resides within and reminds them constantly of the heavy burden they must bear for being custodians of fate, for salvaging, nurturing and resurrecting the soul of humanity through their creations of finely engraved thought. Perhaps they are fallen angels redeeming themselves within the confines of blood and bone. Live Encounters Poetry & Writing is a mirror in which to see our faces….a constant reminder of how beautiful and fragile we all are, and yet pathologically self-destructive. – Mark Ulyseas, on Live Encounters Magazine 8th Anniversary 2010-2017.
