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.

The Dance

Remember your first dance?
The anticipation and uncertainty
The painstaking preparation of clothes and coif
Wanting to stand-out but afraid of rejection
Hoping your favorite song might be played
Praying that your secret love will dance with you.

And when all these desires have been fulfilled
The first touch of hand on hand is electric
