This Elle Smith original poem called 'Angels Do Come To Visit' is about loss, but moreover to know that the connection to those we lose, simply never fades. Poetry which soothes the soul and gives comfort about missing the people who have slipped away:
Angels do come to visit
We all lose people from time to time,
it never means they fade from your mind.
The memories of the way they were,
of random words they said,
lie deep within,
Even though they are dead.
You may not realize or want to know,
that they come to visit, when you are low.
They stand quietly beside,
and watch with care,
Yet no one knows they are there.
‘Angel’ may not be the best word,
We sense something untoward,
a warm, gentle dove.
You know they are there,
as invisibly you are wrapped in love.
An angel visited me last night,
I have to say it gave me quite a fright.
It’s scary when you don’t know.
Who goes there?
and touches your soul.
I hope this gives you comfort, now you know.

It is often hard to imagine that our actions have consequences far-reaching than we imagine. Well, this contemporary original poem Invisible Footprint by creative Elle Smith, allows you to pause for a moment to think about the footprints we seemingly leave on the planet in terms of pollution, damage to the ecosystem, loss of endangered species and climate change. Hopefully, if we collectively pause to consider the consequences we will all interact with the planet in a more meaningful way.
We are all familiar with the Benjamin Franklin quote: “Our new Constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Well, we all must eventually succumb to death, and this original poem 'A Right Time To Die' by Elle Smith explores in a humorous piece of poetry a battle to remain alive whilst in the clutches of death.
This a reflective, contemporary poem about the multiple personalities that we all exhibit as human beings. Often reserved for psychology and psychiatry, we mostly perceive the thin line between mental health issues to be much more remote from our lives. However, Elle Smith tackles this inner torture in her original poem 'Monsters in the Room', which delicately shows us that life places many pressures and challenges on individuals. This poetry is thought-provoking in a positive way, as to how we cope with these matters.
