MÃcheÃ¡l Oâ€™SiochrÃºâ€™s third poetry collection is an intriguing journey from the pandemonium of the opening poem â€œThe Atticâ€ to the silence of â€œHealing Roomâ€.
His beloved ocean and Shannon river flow through several poems and are used metaphorically and to great effect in â€œEphemeronâ€, â€œDawnâ€, â€œEurekaâ€ etc. The themes are diverse, the poet casts a discerning eye over many human issues; the faltering actor in â€œStagemanâ€, the stroke victim in â€œLilliputâ€, the genius musician in â€œMaestroâ€ and living rough in â€œButterflyâ€ as well as hilarious moments in poems such as â€œThe Stickâ€.
This little tour de force is a determined search for healing through the medium of poetic expression.
