Five years previously, Maria's twenty year old son Daniel died in a tragic motorbike accident and thus began her desperate quest for understanding and resolution as she tries to steady herself against unimaginable loss.
Following the death of her youngest son in a motorbike accident, Maria is cast into a dark featureless world where familiar and established boundaries have been wiped out. With no experience of such tragedy and no coping mechanisms to draw strength from, she is totally adrift and overwhelmed by an all-pervading sense of fear.
This collection of poems reflects the deep bond the author has with nature and all she sees around her. From a raindrop falling into a pond to a spider’s web, she observes the natural world in all its wonder.
A charming anthology, in which the poet reflects on aspects of life, past and present. Each poem is introduced with a few words of reflection on its origin, giving the reader an idea of why these particular lines were put together as they were.
January 2015 and Maria is still adjusting to life after the death of her beloved twenty-year-old son Daniel over six years ago. Somehow, having found the strength and focus to retrieve life's reference points and regain stability, she is surviving devastating loss.
