Alongside travel articles, in my personal time I have been working on writing and compiling a book of narrative poetry.
This book tracks the narrative of life stages in which we sometimes suffer, learn and grow to reach where we truly want to be; in my case it is pinned to life growing up in England, a transition period then moving to Spain.
My travel articles reflect these sentiments too however I feel that via poetry, they can be presented in a distinct, artistic manner open to interpretation from each individual reader.
I post my poetry and accompanying photographs on my Instagram account- @lauraferrieswriter . Below is a sample of some which are included in my book:
The rose grew and bloomed
But instead of cherished
It was stamped on then perished
Left to just wither
Each petal forcibly fell
A floral death knell
But after that beheading
A new bud always blooms
That indelible strength always resumes
The weekly transmission
Of pixellated recognition
When electric faces
Holograms beam to far away places
Ensures we’re not out of sight
Voice cast in radio wave
Exchanged in our electric exclave
Once a week I go for a glass of wine
With my friend via an Internet line
This place we inhabit; our virtual bar
Reminds me how we are never that far
