Over the years, she has written hundreds of works … but has only recently begun to recite and experience others aspects the wonderful and healing world of poetry. She currently hosts and features with Poetic Justice in New Westminster throughout the year, and is hoping to have her first book, Nature’Song, published sometime in 2013.
Deborah has been the recipient of the International Society of Poets, Poet of MeritAward, and has had her works published in numerous anthologies, the Agoracosmopolitan News online, and also various book collections of poetry over the years. She has also been published in the Taj Mahal Literary Review in India, and Quill Books in the USA. Her poem, Lunar Love, is included in the Canadian Federation of Poets, Love Anthology.
“I am very blessed to have been given the gift of poetry. To be able to weave one’s heart into a tapestry, ink on paper, is to have learned how to tap into the Universal channel of love and light.
I truly hope that this gift which I possess, which I offer unto anyone who wishes to read, touches and inspires your life in, (even if only one word), a positive and encouraging way. For if I am able to do this, even if only for one person … then my life, indeed, has not been lived in vain.”
Mother Nature rises in
her masculine form.
It has been eons since
he has heard her call.
Awakening from slumber,
he rises from the depths
of his warm bed of
earth and loam.
His voice echoes as he rises;
bearings strong and senses sharp
after so long in rest and solitude –
Tuned and balanced with
the female within.
She has called for her warrior,
and lo; he rises and
abides her request.
No sentient being, along,
can fight a struggle for
survival such as this.
With a great rumbling
his presence is known.
Her twin conscience,
her last hope for survival.
We shall bully and badger her no more
It has begun.
