Mizmor Anthology 
ISSN 2694-6041 (2017-2022)


Mizmor is an annual anthology, considering high-quality poetry that expresses spiritual experiences emphasizing the relationship between the modern world and ancient wisdom. We favor true experiences with striking imagery, we do not consider devotional-religious poetry. “Spirituality is a broad concept with room for many perspectives. In general, it includes a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, and it typically involves a search for meaning in life. As such, it is a universal human experience-something that touches us all…" 

"A spiritual longing for a home which maybe never was.
Nostalgia for ancient places for which we cannot return.
It is the echo of the lost places of our soul's path
and our grief for them. It is in the wind, in the rocks,
and the waves. It is nowhere and it is everywhere."
