SATURDAY WOMAN POET on POETHEAD
Christine Murray has featured a couple of my poems from Tattoo : Tatú with translations on her Poethead site, in the Saturday Woman Poet slot. There's a lovely image accompanying the poems, by Paddy McElroy. One of the poems Corcracht/Purpling is about grief, specifically about the death of my sister. The poem always reminds me of this time of year as her December anniversary approaches. Thinking of her makes Christmas bitter-sweet, even after nine years. Do we ever truly get over the death of someone we love well?
