I haven’t posted in a while because I’ve been very busy writing and organising collections. I am however, delighted to share an exciting piece of news; five of my poems have been published on Poethead (by Chris Murray).
You can read them here: https://poethead.wordpress.com/2019/06/30/swimming-and-other-poems-by-eimear-bourke/
Many of the poems are from my older stuff; with some of them having been written years ago. It’s interesting (and a little cringe-inducing) to read back over things that were written more than half a decade ago. Memories and emotions come flooding back. While life might go on and circumstances change, it’s funny how the written word (as much as a smell, or a visual trigger) can take you back to a certain time and place.
In any event, I hope you like them. If anyone is reading and would like to share a comment, please do. I promise I will try and share some of my newer material here soon.
