New Release! Reading from Declare a Republic, A Free State of Mind by Caroline Murphy Bennis, Eire.



Torn


Torn,

Ripped,

A land screaming,

Calling out:


“Stay”


A back turned not from disconnection but, from

such utter depth of connection that the sight

of its endless beauty would forever

Blind the eyes of the emigrant.


-


Empty cottages,

A shadow of the past,

Alive with life still,

Nature has reclaimed them

Back to its bosom and said lovingly:

“Come nestle here a while”


With a loving embrace, the ivy wraps its arms around

The stone walls and the roses burst

With blossoms in the summer sun.

The birds sing from its rooftops,


Waiting,

For your return home.

In 2015, as an antidote to her busy life in Dublin Caroline Murphy-Bennis started to renovate an old cottage on the Loop Head Peninsula, County Clare, in the West of Ireland. During this time, Caroline enjoyed time sitting in the wilderness of the beautiful Irish landscape. Surprisingly, her awareness began to expand, to see the underlying universal principles present in our reality. These new insights acted as a catalyst by turning her curiosity inward. Caroline began to reflect on her inner consciousness and the collective consciousness of humanity. Declare a Republic, A Free State of Mind is a collection of poems that came from this inner journey back to the rich simplicity of nature and ultimately to the discovery of our True Nature. Available internationally now! Get your copy and wander through the beautiful Irish landscape while being guided by my words. I hope it brings you Solas (Gaelic for Light).
