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 !! 

Dare we begin anew??

  Hi Poets,

Errors and all, here are my prayerful thoughts for the New Year:

Prayerful Contemplations for a New Year

Dare we wear the frocks of an old years passing

into the new? ---- threaded deeds overlapping?

or bare we anew of fresh laden free wings

the beckoning's to become of much newer things?

Shall we leave behind what's said and done

or let them follow --- raveling threads undone?

As the coming new year, now, knocks at our doors

shall we journey unburdened to new found shores?

Our inner self charged with tasks overbearing

discarding the cloaks of an old year wearing

A few days to spend lamenting past distractions

prayerfully packing for the coming attractions

How beautiful the thoughts of renewed attiring

Hopes and dreams budding with faith aspiring

Debra Squyres 2013


May your New Year be blessed with all your needs

and love forever find rest within your door.

    Not sure why I could not copy and paste here on the blog from my MS Word? I had to retype the poem.
