Eternally Yours

Eternally Yours (Title)

I wrote a letter
hoping to find your heart.
Filling each line
with words of love,
especially just for you.

Each words inky
form, reminds me
of you.
Not tidy as it,
slips from the page.

Thoughts dance across,
the paper sowing
words of love.
And at the end,
I sign it with a kiss.
Eternally yours.
For that is what my
Love is?

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,

Deborah H xxxx
