What makes my poems special?
I don’t pretend to have a degree in English literature or to be an expert in the works of great poets. But what I do have is life experience. I’ve experienced love, loss, joy, sadness, elation and loneliness and it is these experiences that make me a great writer. They enable me to write poetry that really touches the heart.
I draw upon these emotions with every poem that I write and always keep the recipient or audience in mind, particularly when writing a bespoke poem. I imagine the feelings they will experience when reading or hearing the poem for the first time. This is what makes my bespoke poems truly unique.
How did it all begin?
I first began writing poems as a way to remember moments with my newborn daughter. It was quite some time before I finally had the courage to share these poems with my friends and family. However, I was overwhelmed by the praise and encouragement I received when I finally did. People began to ask if I could write bespoke poems for their loved ones. And so Rhymes To Remember was born.
A passion for writing
I now have a real passion for writing and I truly believe my words can make a difference. I’m not talking of solving world peace or global warming. But I hope to make a difference to the lives of individuals. I want to help people feel loved, supported, encouraged, valued or understood. I put into words what others struggle to say to make sure that a bride and groom share vows on their wedding day that are perfect just for them; that a new mum hears she is doing great; that a teacher or colleague knows they are appreciated; and that a family member or friend is told how special and loved they are. Never underestimate the power of words!
Examples of my writing
Examples of my poems, both bespoke and generic, can be found throughout my website as well as on my Facebook and Instagram pages. I have written poems for a wide range of individuals and businesses and like to think that I can write in rhyming verse for just about anything. So why not send me an email and set me a challenge?
