Cyndi MacMillan is a well-rounded writer who embraces many genres and forms. Her work has been published in local newspapers and has won contests. She enjoys reading literary journals, and she is actively pursuing publication within their glossy covers.

Verse is both magnetic and kinetic. She attempts - madly- to give equal attention to her poetry, short stories, and a novel-in-progress, the Trim of Wicks.  Regardless of genre, she focuses on language. One word has the power to repel or pull. She never forgets the reader and does her best to make their ride interesting.

Poetry soup is a good forum which enables people from around the world to share poetry. It has some great resources and provides a nice space for friends to meet.

Cyndi lives in a small town in Ontario with her husband, young daughter and far too many books.

EXPLOSION IN PATRICIA’S HOMETOWN..a card to sign


Blog Posted:11/10/2012 7:04:00 PM
Soupers,

Sherbrooke, Quebec is a lovely city that is filled with friendly people.

It has just been devastated by an enormous explosion.

The explosion happened just 2 km from Patricia Ellis’s home. The town was engulfed in smoke. Patricia is fine, but two were killed in the blast and 19 people were injured. The factory that exploded was biochemical and environmental experts are on the scene, trying to access the situation.

Please sign this card for our newer souper to let her know you are thinking about her.


PATRICIA


WE JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW

WE’RE THINKING ABOUT YOU!

Glad to hear you're okay!

    Cyndi, you are a lovely soul. Sadly, over the weekend another of the badly injured passed away. There are 3 other workers and their families who could use some prayers. They are presently in a Montreal burn center suffering horrible chemical burns ( in one case 90% of his body) Thank-you all for your concern.

    Patricia, it was a relief to hear that you are fine. How scary it must have been to see the horizon changed by an enormous smoke cloud. I know that this must be devasting for your hometown. Praying for all those touched by this tragedy and that the clean up will be soon. hugs, Cyndi
