I’m Leaving The Light On!
written by: Ger White
Last night I had a scary dream
Stood in places I’ve never been
In dirty barns,
Tonight; I’m leaving the light on!
Intuition from cave-dwelling days
Hunt all you like; find good prey
Nourish the family,
Stay well and warm
At night; ensure that fire is glowing!
Darkness to light the choice is ours
In darkness we can hardly find our nose!
We can use the light,
Or Be the light
From now I’m keeping the light on!

Gerardine White - (also called Ger) grew up in wild open country of West Limerick, Ireland. Her country life is represented in her poems and has a strong bearing on her core values and education. She inherited the skill of poetic rhyme from both of her parents and her Grandad. This past year she was published in four Anthologies from Clarendon House Publications. Some of her poems will already have appeared in Ballyguiltenane Rural Journal over time. She had the pleasure of spending an evening with Seamus Heaney in Dublin in 2011. It was later very humbling to read a testimonial of her work:
“Your poetry reminds me of Seamus Heaney” (Grant Hudson - Clarendon House Publications)
"Poems by Ger have the ability to lift the soul and bring it to a place of peace and calm"
(Peg Prendeville, Poet. - The Purple Pencil)
