Whispers Of The Soul
Many times I’ve danced the day and lengthened shadows with words as they sail from the unknown to blank pages of rhyme. I have tried many times to put into words feelings that are deep, important, and yet difficult to name. To tell myself the truth in a beautiful way, that I cannot live without it. I have tried to capture a feeling, a sound and a glimpse of my soul as I wondered the corridors of my mind.
We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion, and medicine, law, business, engineering, these are all noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.
Dead Poets’ Society
Martin was born in Drogheda, Co. Louth. He works full-time as a Counselling Therapist in Dublin. His new book is a follow-up to ‘Go Gently‘ (as seen on The Late Late Show). He has also published ‘Spiritual Well-Being’ and ‘Journey of Life.’ Martin lives in Drogheda with his two daughters Hannah and Laura, whom he says are his biggest inspiration in life.
Whispers Of The Soul will be on sale on both nights and shortly on our Published In Ireland online bookstore, on Amazon UK & Ireland and on the Author Website (on preparation)
