This is my collection of songs, poems, scribbles and musings, published here for your enjoyment and as a place to gather my creativity. There are poems about love, sadness, happiness, pain and the world around us, and poems simply inspired by the river I lived on as a child. I hope you gain something from reading them, whether it be big or small, and that they affect your life in some way.

Sharing my posts is encouraged as long as it is made clear that I am the author. All poems and artworks are copyright of Sylvie Ashford.

Thanks for reading!

  7. Hey there hi, firstly i would take a deep breath…… phew! okay so to say your poems, i loved each and every one of them, they are so so so amazing, thoughtful, deep and meaningful. Seriously and there shouldn’t be any doubt why i nominated you for a Reader Appreciation Award, To know more about that, head over to this link and see for yourself…. Because you really deserve recognition. Take care and Stay Mystified! 😀 😉

    • Wow, thank you so much! I am floating around on the clouds right now… It’s so wonderful to have appreciation and recognition for my poems. Thank you for spreading a little bit of happiness ^.^

      • No honestly, your poems are wonderful, i do not have the words to express the beauty, the skill you possess to write them. But its marvellous. I honestly believe you deserve good recognition. Which you shall definitely get. 😀 Take care

  8. I have nominated you for the Beautiful Blogger Award. See my post :0)

    • Thank you very much, Krissy 🙂 I appreciate it!

      • You are most welcome! I have been seeing just how wonderful this blogging community is, and so excited to share :0)

        • It is a great community! There’s a lot of interesting talent out there..

  9. Your poems have a nice flow to them and though often filled with melancholy, there is a certain hope and happiness within them too. Something to smile and cry.

    Take care,

    • Thank you, Michael… I suppose they are somewhat melancholy. I think maybe I am more inspired to write about more melancholy aspects of life as it seems that there is a little more mystery to it than happiness, for example. People are not afraid to express their happiness, whereas sadness is often repressed and only let out behind closed doors.

      I’m not sure, but it’s something to think about.
