About Me

Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, now living in Cheshire, England. I started to write poetry nine years ago, as a hobby. I have enjoyed that new venture very much. My preferences are for long and micro-form poetry styles. A first book of poetry ~ Reason Without Rhyme, was published in December 2013. A second book ~ Fifty Seven Pebbles, was published in September 2015...I am presently compiling the content for my third book. Thank you for visiting my Blog which is regularly updated.

Steadfastly Present....

Never far beyond beckoning or neediness,
A dreamy constancy unites any separation.
Pondering about the coldness of partition,
And that ultimate first touch of unification.
Bonded and held tightly in certain phrases,
Sentiments travel well in a silent transcript.
Each line absorbed as moments of hugging,
Words whisper from their textual placement.
Distance may be a geographical location at times,
Yet intentions remain steadfast in their presence.

  1. Despite distance, closeness can remain constant. Words can always decrease the distance and remind of intentions! Another remarkable poem, Eileen!

  2. I like the idea of words whispering 'from their textual placement'. I am convinced they can reduce distance and time.

  3. Distance can truly work two ways - strengthening bonds or showing the cracks. Loved this, Eileen!

  4. If all are "Bonded and held tightly" physical distance does not matter..wonderful lines Eileen...

  5. How words can bring closeness. Sometimes desire growing through the lines..

  6. Steadfastly Present: indelible title . . . and closing line;

  7. So many directions this can take. In the past you heard of relationships that were only connected through words. Now days with the internet some relationships are just that a web of words.
    No matter: I think the word used to unite and bind no matter the distance is preferred.

  8. Words can most certainly bring closeness, what a great piece of writing. I hope you have a terrific Tuesday :)
