Post #64 – Women’s Memoirs, ScrapMoir – Matilda Butler and Kendra Bonnett
Happy Thanksgiving from Women’s Memoirs. Holidays, especially those celebrated with family, often bring back both good and bad memories. Kendra and I hope that your day is filled with scents of cranberries, sweet potatoes, and joy. And if the stress should get to you, think about journaling. Research shows that writing is healing.
Today we are pleased to introduce you to Jorgelina Zeoli, an Honorable Mention winner of our July memoir contest. We think you will appreciate her creative style. Our blog format doesn’t allow us to share with you her format, but we think you’ll still appreciate her story.
-Matilda Butler and Kendra Bonnett
PS We are still pouring over the large number of entries for our September/October contest. We hope to announce winners soon.

My horse and I
longing for the summer to come …
longing to see my horse again …
and summer comes …
“By the way, Jay…”
“your horse is dead”
hugging a pillow
alone in my room
“my horse is dead!
my horse is dead!”
my dear aunt comes
“I saw your horse going up to heaven”
and I believed her
