DEEPLY SLEEPLESS is a collection of 75 poems--Some short; some long. Some love; some loss. Some grief; some joy--all written at the behest of a profound sleeplessness which has plagued Beverly Van Pelt most of her life. Despite this hindrance, the prevailing feeling of love and positivity shines through. These poems have been collected from various sources over 35 years of writing, some published here for the very first time.
"… you cannot hide the all-too-obvious underlying theme--love. This feeling woven throughout the book comes at a particularly welcome time, when internet doomscrolling is all too common and many of us in the world feel alone. The sheer power of your love extends beyond the pages of this book." Excerpt from the Foreward by Meredith Mullins, Author of the award-winning book, "In a Paris Moment"
