Biography of Jean Dament
I have only been writing poetry since 2004. After a bout with cancer I was inspired to pen my thoughts & feelings; which turned into my first worthy poem called 'Out of Darkness'. It was published by Noble House in 'Centres of Expression'-2008. I have continued to enjoy writing poetry since.
I have always loved reading other people's works of art; & never imagined myself creating some poetry of my own.
I also use Spiritsong as my poetic name.
I like to be called Jeannie by my friends.
Jean Dament Poems
A Poet's Lament
Words, words, words dancing in my head, It usually happens when I've just gone to bed, They toss around til I can no longer sleep; And my thoughts become crowded when in those words creep;
Magic happens when the heart opens to love & bliss, There's magic in that special kiss, Theres magic seen in another's eyes & smile,
Written In The Sand
Upon the golden shores of history written in the sand lies our poetry, Some of our poems will linger there only for a short period of time; While the most meaningful ones will leave a lasting imprint upon another's heart & mind, Our deepest expressions, thoughts & feelings are quite fragile gifts;
Lost In The 50's
As a child in the 50's I remember a time; When lots could be bought for simply a dime, Chips, pop, milk & comic books; And sometimes a nickel was all it took,
Out Of Darkness
A cry sounds out, only into silence; As one wonders, is it the falling of insanity? When no one comprehends the pain, Alone it echoes off it'self-displaced & lost to the world,
A Safe Haven
There are times when I feel like I'm adrift out at sea; Where I'm floating upon life's troubled waters; And then just in time you're there to rescue me, Leaving me to wonder why you even bother,
A Cup Of Pleasure
A cup of tea is my pure pleasure; When I sit down at my leisure, A gentle brew will ease up my tensions that have taken their toll; While it also tends to soothe my very soul,
A Special Dove
One solitary dove rests on a garden vine, Lingering there in a sweet calmness, oh! so divine, His pure white coat is glowing in the sun,
A Perfect Love
Our love was a perfect one that has now been put to sleep; As we once did cherish one another, but it couldn't keep, We were to marry, But instead it became a burden we must now carry,
Having A Bad Day
Ever had a bad day where nothing goes right; And it seems that light has suddenly turned dark & into night, Each thing that you try becomes such a fight for life; Where everything feels so frightfully full of strife,
Angels seem to take flight all year long both day & night, Some are seen...while some remain out of sight, They dispel darkness into light anew, Performing good deeds while being loyal & true,
Life Is Fragile-Handle With Care
Everyday life hangs lightly in a delicate balance; Where nothing should be left to chance; And time should not be taken for granted...like it's something free, Even though our problems can overwhelm us...we need to let them be;
Two Swans In Love
Two swans are adrift on the lake in all their splendor, A sweet vision to behold in it's true grandeur, Ghostlike images that you may encounter, Unaware of their surroudings; while they effortlessly saunter,
They say it's nifty to be Fifty, But what about turning Sixty? We feel somewhat like a rose dying on the vine; And our minds & bodies are slowly fading over time,
Out Of Darkness
A cry sounds out, only into silence;
As one wonders, is it the falling of insanity?
When no one comprehends the pain,
Alone it echoes off it'self-displaced & lost to the world,
An endeavor to construe life's work; left as on a shelf unused,
A cry lies waiting to be heard, but not,
Thus it leaves it's mark confiscated once again,
Alone, not quite, for Out of the Darkness shines a light,
A sign of hope beams through;
