For the sake of my Winter Faeries series and the sequel Return To The Forest, have to inform my readers, these poems are best understood reading them in sequence.
Winter Faeries was written in the freezing cold of winter 200? And, ? to protect myself from my fears which brought on Winter Faeries.
Understanding Winter Faeries is a long poem with 3 parts written at a time the author isolated into a dark room out of fear for her life. Was fear conjured, delusional, or real? Well, the author still asks herself these 3 questions.
The facts were she lived isolated, quietly as not to awaken the sleeping foe, she slept with a knife under her pillow as the for slept with a cocked double barrel shot gun at his side. It was intended for her.
It is a fact her best friend of 57 years of age suddenly died during this time. And, before her death, the friend states, "there is more than surface, investigate."
It is also a fact the writer was under the care of a psychologist who monitored her behavior and who took careful notes, just in case. The psychologist PHD was hired by the author, "just in case."
It is a fact the foe was found to have 2 alias' if not more and it is a fact that many strangers came forward telling the author small bits and pieces of a grand puzzle which has never been solved.
There was no evidence documented that the author was delusional or psychotic during this 2 year period Winter Faeries was written.
After all, psychotic and delusional people don't ask, am I psychotic or delusional? They lack the mental clarity or stability to ask a mentally sound question..
How does the author know about delusions, deuterium and auditory or visual hallucinations?
Because this is the profession she has worked for many years. She knows the questions to ask. She has always answered the questions proposed to her, truthfully.
This was the beginning of Winter Faeries.
