Norah sprung from an extravagant linage of poets where Poetry was seen as a beautiful benediction-
a noble passion
blessing all ones days.
Won 3rd price for poetry in The Gerald Manley Hopkins award.
Wrote 4 poetry books
Only a Breath Away,
The Touch Of A Spark.
You will not fall between the cracks- this loving universe has got your back
Only when your heart is empty will there be room for the whole world to come inside.
The awareness of death- gives life.
Nature quietens the mind and nourishes the heart.
When the mind is quiet the body can rest.
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.
