Òran Uisge Wildflower Meadow is my second poetry book published by Grosvenor House Publishing Ltd and will be released on August 5th 2021.
Òran Uisge (gaelic for song of water) is a peaceful place to watch the bees and butterflies foraging for food, to enjoy fragrance from the wildflowers which fills the air and to listen to the abundance of songbirds. The river flows gently towards the sea, ceaselessly providing us with the tranquil sound of its journey. The meadow changes constantly as the seasons turn.
These poems are written in an evocative way to allow the reader to experience the effects nature has on our senses and mood. Whether it is the warm breeze touching our skin, the scents from orchids ascending through the air, the song of a skylark overhead, the sight of dark clouds with the threat of Summer rain or the taste of the blackberry harvest. Òran Uisge is a perfect environment to lose yourself in nature and in the moment.
Òran Uisge wildflower meadow was the inspiration for me to write this second poetry book. The collection includes; Midsummer Night, Summer Rain, The Call from the Wild and The Dance of the Barn Owls.
Available from the following stores,
Barnes and Noble
“Freefall into nature and embrace it,
A true companion for life”
Òran Uisge you haven of peace.
Surrounding my form with a silken fleece.
Your flowers burst from an emerald sea,
Amazing my eyes with the beauty I see.
A spectrum of colour in the early dawn light,
Brings warmth to my mood from floral delight.
I wish you could last for the whole of the year,
But alas, you cannot, and the loss I must bear.
Farewell until spring, when you reappear,
In a carpet of hues, your gift brings me cheer.
