Broken (Title)

I cannot sleep.
For no more, can I rest.
Half broken, and crushed
by stress.
External forces conspire
hour by hour.
To drive us ever further,
into some unending way.
Sleep deprived, each passing day.
Longing to be more
alive and living.
No longer filled with
regret and misgivings.

Gagged!    (Title)

Silently waiting,
looking hopeful
  I dare not speak.

You cannot see,
can you.

For I have been silenced.

Though I speak,
you cannot hear
my voice.

The one within.

For she is gagged,
by him.

Now just a vessel
without a voice.

Silenced again,
though not by choice.

Fall Down

Busy old me!

Good evening to all my followers, friends and visitors of my wonderful blog!

I have been very busy of late, and sadly unable to hop back here quite as easily or frequently as I would like.

New events are providing me with a countless number of new and exciting adventures.

Each event bursting into view reveals a new, direction on this slowly but beautifully enriched map of my life.

News ……….

I am now a Parish Councillor in my local community, and hot on our agenda is a proposed development on an ancient monument site, which cannot happen – so we fight on to make sure this does not happen.

In addition to this I am also helping to put together the Chiltern Arts Festival, where I will be exhibiting and selling my Poetry /Art Cards along with helping to create an increased footfall to this annual event.

And there is more………..

Hurrah! My poetry collection is complete, and about to fly off to the publishers within this next week.

The Young Adult Novel is at completion, and will be winging it’s way to my prospective agent by the end of June.

I am also returning back to my art roots, to start creating and making some sculptures and working on some new designs for a new range of Poetry/Art greetings cards.

But most importantly I am loving words, enjoying my writing and diving deep into the essence and power of creativity in all things!

I’ll see you lovely people hear tomorrow.

I love you all,

Hanging my knickers out to dry!

It's me again, lighting up the world with words.

Funny title I hear you say....

I've suddenly acquired this fine lust for life, and I am now throwing off the grey clouds of sadness.

Feeling some, what at one with the world and on fire with life.

 I'm hanging my knickers out to dry on the washing line of happiness.

My thinking is that if they get chance to flap in the breeze a wee while, maybe I'll at least catch someone's eye.

And so what if my arse is bare, and beautiful at least I've stuck it out there!

Let me know though if the mere sight of my rump, ends up giving you the hump.

I'll catch you soon on the flappy.......whoops! 

                                                                      Happy side of life :-) x

Life is blooming marvellous!

Hello to all my friends, followers and visitors of my lovely blog.

I am delighted to be back after so long................What was that? 
                                                   Where have I been hiding for these past few months?

Well, I'm going to be up front and honest, life has been chaotic but in a fun kinda way.

I am back now and I will be jumping on here most days ...... I know I've said that before, but I really will be I promise!

News update ............

My range of Poetry Cards are now on sale and will be featured in a large art exhibition taking place over the May Bank Holiday, in my local area. 
A collection of my poems is about to be published, so I'll let you all know when the book has been published and is on sale. I really hope that you'll all support me, by buying your copy of the book and the Poetry Cards.

Then on from that I'm busy producing Poetry films, or should I say turning some of my beautiful poems in to visual art.

I will be adding some of these here, and I will update you all and let you know of other places that these will be posted.

So all in all lots happening, and many more pots simmering on my stove of creativity.

I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow ............Yes! I did indeed say tomorrow.

And my lovely people I will be posting some new work too.

Have a brilliant day everyone!

 I'll love you and leave you all for today, and I cannot wait to see you here tomorrow..........

Much love

Deborah xxxx
