The Centre Of Always

0 out of 5


“Ah, they’re just lovely poems!” These poems of
generosity and perceptiveness. His first lines are diamond.
They stir our bodies, disturb our minds, open
imagination, tease and taste ambiguities. Each poem in
this rewarding second collection from Daragh Bradish
is ‘an unmarked door’ to venture through for public and
private conversation and relationship. They draw the
reader into the poet’s delicate web of people, boundaries,
caverns, seas and skies. There is gentleness here, and
power; but always ‘seeing’. These elegant poems are
foundation blocks for a poet’s vision.
– Seamus Cashman
