Today, I’ve posted a prose poem on Wattpad to celebrate my love of Ireland – its beauty, romance & song. As a dreamer, poet & singer I feel I’ve always been Irish in my heart.
Here is the link to ‘Irish Rose’ on Wattpad. Wattpad is a growing digital community of writers & readers who share their work for free. Irish Rose is also published in my collection, Space to Dream: Poems.
You can also listen to Irish Rose on Soundcloud, where I love to share my poems spoken aloud: Irish Rose: Spoken Word
Erin Go Bragh! Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Celebrate the love of the Irish. Thanks for stopping by Space to Dream. Have a wonderful weekend.
P.S. Here’s a recording of the beautiful Irish song Danny Boy that I’ve posted before – but will share it again for St. Patty’s Day. It’s from my college days at Illinois State University, where I sang with the Concert Choir & Madrigal Singers. Yes, I’m the really short soprano next to the really tall tenor in the middle. 🙂
Today it feels apt to share a poem that speaks to the season which has sprung around us. Though it is quite a chilly, crisp day by southern Louisiana standards; it is sunny outside my window, and I see blooms on the bushes and hear birds chirping. So, the awakening of spring has begun…

I see her in a pink sparkle haze
floating among the trees
her jellied wings
flexing in and out
as if in water
I reach to touch a wing
my fingers stretched outward
into the sweetened air
hovering ’round her
she hangs as if suspended, unmoving
her wings opening wide
to reveal diamonds
they fall into my hand
like gold from a leprechaun
raining beautiful trinkets
and little pink sparkles
from her wings
as she delicately
