My Poetry is an extension of myself. It's my soul standing naked and raw, unashamed for the world to see. Of Silken Waters is a book of no intent. It emerged from under a rock of loneliness like a spirit-possession luring me to places I have never been. It's my mirrored self, gifting me the grace to confront endurance with a metaphorical chastisement. My poems are my life on page, never apologising for their unwillingness to be defined or be nailed down.
A series of poems written for the National Famine Commemoration in Ireland and abroad between 2010 and 2012. When composing Flowers of Humility and Question of Hunger, I adapted my style of poetry to reflect the language of that period.
