About Poetically Seasoned by Debbie Chilton:
“In this special series Debbie manages to create and capture a spirit of the possible. A world where her words open your own imagination through hers. This sense of freedom she evokes is so very poignant right now, given the global pandemic and lack of movement. She speaks with a unique creative writing that comes from not necessarily her experience on this earth, but perhaps from somewhere else. She is in a sense discovering herself through these beautiful poems.”

My poems are influenced by the ancient Persian greats, Rumi and Hafiz, whose writings I happened upon during a meditative weekend retreat. Their love of nature, the human spirit, and inner human turmoil lit a fire in me. One night after meeting a young lover I sat down to write. The Night Collection was born. And so was my love of writing short poems. When reading this collection, you will see that each of the poems is mirrored after the other. First reading Anticipation and then Desire reflects the same scene from two different perspectives. I was imagining my young lover, standing outside my front door with torrid visions floating in his head. While I, on the other side, felt my heart racing as I approached the door to let him in. Ahhh, Anticipation and Desire!
You could say my writing has become a form of therapy. Now it is clear to me what Poetry is: an art form of human expression. A translation of our human experience throughout life’s seasons. It can be seen as either dark and cold or breath-taking goodness and light. That decision is left up to the interpreter and their lens. With that as my guide to living the experience of what I call my life, I have written over 300 poems in hopes to get them published. That day has come.
