Norah Tunney is a remarkable voice. Just read those intelligent, sensitive, and beautiful quotations she has posted...such as.''The awareness of death- gives life.'' and ''Nature quietens the mind and nourishes the heart.''. Those words give you a key into the heart and spirit of her soul and her writings. I recommend her poetry... I know I have enjoyed reading her. She has not been her for a couple of months and I miss her voice.

The Best Poem Of Norah Tunney

Last Night I Held The World In My Arms

Last night I held the world
in my arms,
and my heart broke into
a thousands shards,
I cried rivers
and my body ached and shivered,
I gathered up every scrap of pain and grief
and carried it home to the great ocean of silence and peace,
we are not beings in a separate cell,
we are part and parcel of a magnificent star-shell.

Last night I fell asleep with the world in my arms
and today I cry from the depths of my being-
let me die from loving this beautiful world too much,
and forgive me if have hurt you along the way,
but I am just a poor being made of clay.
