Well hello there! A little about me.............
I have been writing poems since I was about 8/9 years old. That's over 20 years now.
My dream is to one day, get my book of poems published, complete with my own illustrations, entitled..."A Life in Poetry". Even if I pay for a set amount of books to be into print, I would like to do this to pass the book down to my children and my children's children. For them to read the words I've written. To read my life in poetry....My Legacy lol
I currently have 5 of my poems in print, published in america as part of various anthrologies.
I've also written a couple of short stories, but prefer to write poetry so much more lol.
I am lucky to be happily married to my best friend,lover and soulmate. A
I am a very proud mum of 4 and stepmum of 3.
I am extremely protective and proud of my not so little family.
They are my world.
I'm a pretty ordinary girl really, who loves to write, and always has done.
I write from the heart and tend to write poems when i am sad or down, angry, frustrated, needing to let off steam or just in need of resolving something. My best poems have been written in minutes, (when I am feeling particularly emotional) the words just seem to flow so easily if I am emotional in any way.
I find that writing poetry helps to ease my pain at times and it also gives me a great deal of personal satisfaction
I never useto share my writings with anyone, my poems were/are very private to me and I feel they r best kept that way. I have shared some of my poems with a select few on the odd occasion. But I do like being able to share my writing on here, basically anonymously. I like to hear peoples thoughts and reactions to my poems, people that don't know me or my story...although my poems usually tell my story for me...
They are very, very personal to me and my life.
Need to start making more time in my hectic life to sit and write again...I find it can be very cathartic/calming/soothing to put pen to paper. Sometimes the poem seems to write itself...it just comes to me and flows across the page. Other times I like to go seeking and searching for the poem...trying different rhymes and words etc until I find the words and meanings I seek.
All my poems are works in process, I often go back to a poem a few times,tweaking and changing it to try and improve it.
If you have took the time to read this...thank you for your interest. I hope you enjoy my writings. I do love to hear what people think after taking the time to read my stuff.
All comments are very greatly appreciated
