Annette Aitken

I am now on twitter as Annette Aitken.

Hello my name is Annette. I was born in Dublin (Eire) in 1964 I am the youngest of seven children. I left school at fourteen with not much education behind me.
As I quote a poem I have written myself sum's me up.

School of Life

" I may not have a Masters Degree
but what I know
of love and strife
I learned it in the
school of life. "

For the early part of my life.

Not looking for forgiveness
my soul I pray to keep

Feather white feather bright
fell from angels wing tonight

Come hail or rain or sleet or snow
outside is the place I'll always go
Just A Little Star
Just A Little Star

There is nothing special about me
I forget myself sometimes

Annette is an ardent lover of poetry, With inborn talent. Her poetic prowess is easily deciphered in the lovely little poem she has shared for us in her biography. A true poet, worth the name. An artist of immense beauty and imagination.

She was a true artist with word and could paint a landscape in your mind using few words better than any artist could with a thousand brushstrokes.

One needn't know a rose for very long in order to fully appreciate its bloom. One only needs to know roses in general, but more so the knowledge that each blossom is fully unique in itself. Over the relatively short time that I have been acquainted with Annette's writing, I have had the delightful and very satisfying literary privilege of witnessing her bloom as a poet. To behold the transformation from somewhat tentative, albeit incisively honest writing to forcefully engaging and viscerally driving command of vision and expression has one of the more satisfying experiences I have enjoyed during my tenure in this forum. Annette s not afraid to wander down the darker alleys of the human mind, and she is honest enough to report what she encounters there, vividly and unforgettably. There is, indeed, a refreshing quality to her writing, unpretentious and direct, with imagery that unapologetically bites and does not relent. Just as well, for the beauty of a rose is not distinct from the sting of its thorn.

Annette, I'm no expert on poetry I just write it, but absolutely love your poems, reading them opens up something inside me, and takes me to pleasant places, apart from being a sincere friend on here, though I've never met you in real life. You come across as a great literary talent,
