  1. Eee! Oh My God Magaly 😍 this is so freaking gorgeous! It has everything that a book lover craves for 😀 especially awestruck with ““But the scars left by stories are poetic tattoos.” Beautifully executed. Thank you so much for participating at Prompt Nights and for your constant love and support ❤❤

    Lots of love,
    Sanaa

  2. I thought this seemed familiar! I had read it when you posted it before. It is stil a powerful piece. The juxtaposition of the weapons of war and a conversation about beautiful words is jarring, but in such an interesting way! Still such a wonderful piece, Magaly!

  3. Awesome…for whatever reason, I could “see” this taking place on the practice field, a break from the barking noise. Thank you Magaly for EVERYTHING you have done and how your life touched all of us by your past and present. Hugs, XO

  4. ‘One Hundred Years of Solitude’ was such a wonderful read – but a long time ago; I might have to re-read it (which would be no hardship) to recover my favourite part. The one I most vividly remember is the sweaty, sensual tropical decay with the devouring ants.

    I adore YOUR story, Word-Warrior!

  5. Luv your sass in this telling tale, your imagery is enchanting and lively.
    My favourite lines

    ““Reading does the same for the mind, Chief.” Remembering what he said about his people, I added, “But the scars left by stories are poetic tattoos.”

    much love…

  6. Fascinating read!
    “I wonder if you’ll find poetry in war.”
    “I don’t,” I said, leaving the classroom without looking at Chief’s face.”

    YES! Sometimes it is necessary but never poetic. Love your words
