Living Waters Review Editors Success Stories

 

"Overture to the Sun's Landscaper"

By Scott Cotto

 

Reveal the hidden

under flameless light.

Stars grant

a profound shamble

upon lakes glorified by a cosmic glaze.

And each ripple procures a sweet sound

of fragmented

flavors.

It becomes the cold touch

of scales and feathers

where swamp meets sand

and sand meets fortitude.

Sing, sing, and sing, muse of song,

clinging to flutes and flowers.

And now I hear the moment

beyond to a grove of graves,

watery in silence,

an old Florida symphony.

Speaking of Living Waters...

 “Living Waters Review is a phenomenal creative outlet for PBA students to publish their writing and art in a competitive journal. Working with the LWR staff for two years helped refine my critical eye toward literature, art, editing, and publishing. My experience solidified my decision to continue studying creative writing and publishing in my graduate studies.”
