About Debra Squyres
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoHello to all:

I am called Debra from the great state of Louisiana. I started writing poems in 2010, though I had written a few as a young squirt many, many...years ago

I have trouble wrapping my mind around the idea that I might just be a poet...but as a writer of poems, perhaps I should accept the title given. 

I have had no formal training and it shows at times, though I do venture out of free verse sometimes to broad my skill and to also plump up a few brain cells lol

Punctuation is my nemesis (yes I had to look up the spelling lol) as well as spelling at times.  I offer my words to those who wish to read in hopes of leaving a smile, a thought, a new idea or simply a verse or two to make one smile. 

Blessings to each of you and many thanks to those who drop by my offerings of poetic verse. Know I will drop by your offerings as well.

Blessed be !!

Hi Poetry Soup Team:

Last night and today I've been having problems with switching from one page to another.  When I click to go to another members page, another window tab opens besides the page I am trying to go too.... and my virus protector tells me "Whoa !!  Do you really want to go there? "  Not sure what is going on...but I'm finding it a problem when trying to visit Member poems. This never happened before.

Thank you for your attention on this matter.

    If the computer asked you: "Do you really want to go there?" when you were trying to visit my poems.... is logical!!!! : ) The computer knows! LOL! ...I think it's something in your PC, Debra. My best wishes. Ruben.

    I've noticed the hyperlinks (very annoying, especially in the middle of a concrete poem, where the visual is so important), but I haven't had any mystery tabs trying to open.

    Debra I hate to say this but what hyperlink, god help Facebook! lol....
    Squyres Avatar Debra Squyres Date: 2/3/2013 12:46:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    I'm wondering if it has anything to do with these hyper links inserted in the poems.
