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.

A true companion for life”
Flowers of Summer
Lady’s mantle sparkling with dew,
Speedwell shining an iridescent blue.
Shepherds purse speckled with white,
Lilac and gold, the tiny eyebright.
Gallant soldier and meadowsweet,
Honeysuckle balmy and sweet.
Golden ragwort the crofters’ foe,
Ragged robin with bright pink glow.
Cuckoo flower and tall foxgloves,
Majestic orchid and fox and cubs.
Slender thistle with purple blooms,
Yellow hues from hawkweed and brooms.
Regal kingcups and heath bedstraw,
Beautiful flowers with many more.
Colourful names with hues so bright
Light up our world with dazzling delight.
Exquisite fragrance fills the air,
An artist’s palette for all to share.
