The first time I spoke to Barbara I was in awe. Pursuing a passion whilst maintaining a full-time job and being a Mum (another full-time job!) is something that I find incredibly inspiring, and I was delighted that she had reached out to me. The foundation of Poems by Post is built upon creative people that ‘dare to do’ and dare Barbara does!
With two books under her belt and a great knack for social media, Barbara is spreading her enthusiasm for verse far and wide and is undoubtedly inspiring plenty of others who come across her work.
Encouraging that spread of inspiration, Poems by Post will be delivering hundreds of hand-typed poems penned by Barbara to people all around the world. The poem that she has wrote, If you are asking for forever, captures the essence of the idea of a ‘forever-love’ and reassures the reader that their place within their love story is the exact place that they are meant to be.
Accompanying this poem is artwork by Hattieshake, who’s clever and colourful illustrations add a wonderful visual element to Barbara’s poem.
