Anti-Putin Russian paramilitary groups Attack Belgorod, Russia. Kyiv insists these Russian forces acted independently.
The Septolet is a poem consisting of seven lines containing fourteen words with a break anywhere in between the two parts. Both parts deal with the same thought and create a picture.
Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

Alas, such devastating news pierces my heart. The escalation of violence in the region causes great distress. The involvement of paramilitary groups adds another layer of complexity to an already precarious situation. I wonder what motives drive them to act independently if that’s indeed the case. May calm dialogues prevail over armed conflicts. May compromise triumph over stubborn ideologies.
