I started writing poetry and short stories in my late forties. I find it fun, and therapeutic too.
I grew up surrounded by books, and they are still my constant love.

I have one published poem in an anthology entitled, 'Still Life'. The publisher is United Press Ltd.
Some of my work also appears on the 1066 Art Gallery website: www.1066artgallery.co.uk more »

    Susan, your poems seem to me to show a real poetic talent. But reading 'Be Lucky', there's something I can't quite put my finger on. It's to do with presenting a poem to the public without calling - consciously or unconsciously - for sympathy; which such a poem would arouse naturally. The old phrase 'trespassing on someone's sympathy' is a rather harsh expression of this. It's something to do with poetic self-containment. The Chinese are so good at this!
    I hope you can make sense of this? I wouldn't write if it weren't that your poetry impresses me...

    Best, Michael

Best Poem of Susan Ashdown

Lamplight

She sits in the lamplight and
with carefully crafted quill
pens out her most precious thoughts.
She loves him still.

He fell asleep so long ago and
is resting peaceful now
not a day goes by without thoughts of him
and not one moment ever will.
