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

Verse is both magnetic and kinetic; poetry demands her attention since she also writes short stories, and she is knee-deep in her 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.

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

Poetrysoup is a forum which encourages growth and self-determination. Friends can be found, here. Welcome.

    O God of love, source of life, hear our prayers for this woman who lost Her baby before it ever came to birth. The blessing of your love was torn from her body, leaving her empty and devastated. Comfort her now in her sorrow. Restore her hope for a child to come. Give her courage and new delight in the days ahead. In good time, grant her a new life that her soul may rejoice and her body give birth; Amen. --Vienna Cobb Anderson
