Sitting with the Darkness
This collection of poetry & thoughts explores the intense emotions generated in response to the natural ebb and flow of life experiences.
The particular focus is on mental health, with an insight into the differing perceptions and the depths of emotional reaction such experiences provoke.
Writing poetry has always been a natural activity for Annabelle from as far back as she can recall.
While in her final two years of secondary education her work twice earned her the annual school Poetry Prize. Annabelle was also the recipient of a highly commended award in successive years for her entries in the Ipswich (Queensland) Poetry Feast Competition (2007 & 2008).
From her early beginnings using the poetry medium to write about the favourite things of her younger years, Annabelle’s work has now progressed to exploring the intense emotions generated in response to the natural ebb and flow of life experiences.
Annabelle’s other interests include music & photography, and she currently lives in Brisbane, Australia with her much loved cat Leila.
