Shelley L Baxter
Biography of Shelley L Baxter
At age 12 I wrote my first poem and after that I realized how much I not only liked reading poetry but that I loved to write poems as well.
My preferred style of writing is usually free style just because it offers the poet alot of room to express themselves without having to be too technical.Maybe over time I will enjoy thinking and following some of the rules of different styles of poetry.The only other ones I have written are Haiku, Senryu and one Nonet...Of those I enjoy the nonet the most after free style.
Take Care of U,
Shelley Baxter aka as 'Lilacsea'

The 'C ' Word.
I am awake praying for the day I'm not dreaming,
of a brighter day where the C words not scheming!
Pushing and prodding it's way into lives...

where all kinds of cancer live in all kinds of fear,
where even the word can easily be uttered!
