Biography of Deborah Downes

I am a child of the sixties who never got over it. I am an RN by profession, married for 29 yrs to Carl who is yin to my yang, proud mother of Rachel & Eric, and most importantly, I am a child of God, raised in the Catholic traditions. I tend to be passionate in both my likes and dislikes which is why I am so drawn to poetry. I cannot think of a better way to distill & express my feelings.

Deborah Downes's Works:

Currently working on a collection of poetry, to be entitled 'Musings out of Madness'

Plastic Jesus

Plastic Jesus on dashboards and in celluloids
Expressionless face mouthing great wisdom in monotone
Hanging from a cross of suffering as though in peaceful slumber
His heart and soul of passion displayed without emotion
Biblical words but a weak reflection of His true meaning.

This is not my Lord and my God
Who is great beyond mere man’s ability to depict
This is not His message which cannot be contained by human language
