………………………Then Art

 

startles out of the heart ache, marble or page.

………………………………….Now I too see

the wildest things require the strongest cages

the panther’s double bars, or the seeds,

bloodysweet and bitter, in the pomengranate’s

rind. Love held tight in a sonnet.

 

Moira Egan’s Notes on a Potion is a sensuous collection, multi layered and infused with subtle humour.

Egan distils the essence of the myriad experiences within love, loss and female sexuality. These liminal spaces of the heart are subtly, yet powerfully, in flux are exquisitely rendered.

Some of the most outstanding and memorable pieces  in these pages are ekphrsatic poetry: the paintings of Suzanne Valadon inspiring a heartfelt and dynamic conversation between poet and painter. The language is candid but tender, always seeking a balance between levity and gravity.


the cinnabar of curtain, drooping leaves

in faded jade, and apples, red and mustard,

autumnal, long since fallen from the tree.

 

This is the toll of love and gravity.

And yet you cannot disregard the beauty.
