Like the rocking of a cradle or the chanting of waves, poetry lulls us, allowing us to transcend both time and space. The peace that seeps inside may last for hours, days or even weeks, and each poem’s unique signature lingers in the subconscious forever. As such, these songs from the soul pay homage to beauty, simplicity and the mysteries we can never quite solve and perhaps don’t wish to.
Auroras will hypnotise, sinister monarchs will swallow you up and an artist’s unspoken quest for love will both haunt and beguile you. Furthermore, in the magical world this author creates, autumn leaves swirl, dragonflies flutter and iridescent blossoms take on a life of their own. In the style of William Wordsworth’s immortal poem ‘The Daffodils’, these odes to innocence, tinged with passion, are spellbinding and sensitively rendered, leaving you wanting more.
