the creation broke through
a damn releasing
a geyser of words
up and out
across the white plains of paper
a splatter of rhetoric
and this possession
haunt these hands
Angela Deighan is a poet, a lover, a fighter and a transformer. She has butterflied so many times, she should be put in a museum and studied. She writes because she knows no other way to be. She is a messenger, a sharer, and a word engineer. She believes that when spirit comes a knockin’, you open the door (that is if you can find the courage). Her greatest enemy is herself and she strives daily to believe in her own talents and abilities. When Angela is not writing, you can find her walking in the woods, probably petting the trees and taking photos. Her favorite healer is mother nature and believes that everyone she comes in contact with is a teacher.
