Biography of Susan Ashdown
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
Susan Ashdown Poems
Behind This Smile
Behind this smile is a host of mixed emotions. Like a scared rabbit I want to stand stock-still In the stare of headlight-eyes.
She sits in the lamplight and with carefully crafted quill pens out her most precious thoughts. She loves him still.
Home Once More
She drifted in with the mist As if kissed by the air Floating there in the half light Blessed by time and the sight of home.
When You Depart
All my emotions are jostling-jangling for first place In a body that feels as if time has no substance.
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.
