About Deborah Guenther Beachboard
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoI began writing.poetry in the early 90s. It has been an on again/off again endeavor because I suffer from depression. My new hope is that my poetic endeavors will be on again/on again.

I previously published poetry on Poetry Soup under the user name DebbySue Guenther (my maiden name). DebbySue

I was gone from poetry soup for about a year and a half. When I decided to come back I had forgotten my user name and login information and created a this new account. Later I recovered my previous login information and began posting poems to that previous account. I will probably repost that new poetry to this account and delete it from that account.

I currently live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with myself and my 5 dogs--a Minnie Aussie and four Chiwienies. I find that most days they are all the company need.

Speculative Poetry

Speculative Poetry includes themes such as fantasy, science fiction, and mythology,

For example, this poem by Jeffrey McDonald

A Quiet World

Late at night, I call my long
distance lover and proudly say
I only used fifty-nine today.
I saved the rest for you.

When she doesn't respond, I know
she's used up all her words
