Mid Morning Break

Mid Morning Break

written by: Ger White

 

Sitting by the kitchen hearth
Opening her prayer book
Opening lines to other folk
To Gods Kin
To heroes of men
Each day she tunes in
20 minutes
This continuity creates
Calm across the land
Even cattle respond
And each moment thus spent
In rural contentment
Sends vibes to the skies
We live out their replies

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)
