Òran Uisge Wildflower Meadow Book

Oran Uisge Wildflower meadow Poetry Book

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.

Donald’s House

Donald’s House alcohol ink SW

Donald was our neighbour and friend for fifteen years. He lived in the small croft house next to the river. We spent memorable evenings infront of the fire with a dram laughing and exchanging stories. Happy times.

Here is an excerpt from the poem.

Donald’s house

The luminous walls glowed in the moonlight,

Gable window flickered with orange delight.

Smoke plumes rose from the chimney stack,

As charred wood aroma called us back…

Poetry

Inspired by nature and living on this amazing island.

During an evening stoll on midsummer night and I could hear a snipe flying over the moor. The bees were humming as they foraged for nectar in the fading light. The scents from the honeysuckle and orchids floated through the air. I was inspired to write the poem “Midsummer Night” and here is an excerpt

Midsummer night

To settle and rest and close your eyes,

Absorbing the sweet air with gentle sighs.

The dew is falling with moist delight,

To cool the meadow in the fading light…
