Book of Nature Poems - Wisdom, Comfort and Inspiration

24th March 2017

Finding Comfort & Inspiration in Nature

Nature has been my comforter and teacher ever since I can remember. Being inspired to write came naturally but the courage to share my words came much later in life. I'm sure I’m not alone in this regard, sharing personal thoughts and creations was daunting at first.

Making a Start

When I decided to start my own business I experimented by making hand-made greetings cards using my label ‘Love is Real’ which I sold at local art and craft fairs. I got the idea to present some of my poems on the cards and presented them as attractive fridge magnets. Even though I enjoyed my work immensely, seeing the joy my words and cards gave to others, the profits for the amount of time consumed was not sustainable. It was a good learning experience all the same. I realised that my poems and creations had significance to others.

"The Whisperings of Nature' is a collection of 15 nature inspired poems which have appeal for nature lovers seeking wisdom, comfort and inspiration from the beauty that is found in Nature."

Becoming a Self-Published Author

A few years later after gaining more confidence and knowledge it was time to take bolder steps. I decided to publish my first book. 'The Whisperings of Nature' is a collection of 15 nature inspired poems which have appeal for nature lovers seeking wisdom, comfort and inspiration from the beauty that is found in Nature.

In preparation for publishing I approached a number of nature and poetry lovers and a few established poets to get their impressions of my work. I got lots of favourable comments and supportive suggestions for minor edits.

Carlow Library provided me with a beautiful space to launch my book and I was blown away by the amount of people who game on the night to listen to recitals of my poetry. It was a very special event and I had a great sense of achievement from the experience.

Book Reviews

The Whisperings of Nature has been purchased by readers all over the world from Cavan to U.S.A. and Finland. I even got a request from a library in Cork who wanted to purchase copies for their readers. The president of Ireland has a copy too.

Wellness bloggers who purchased my book have kindly written about it in their blogs. Thanks to Gloria Mc Breen of We are Holistic and Krystal Long of Krystal’s Journal.

Connecting Inwards & Restoring Calm

I have found nature poems useful for helping me to switch off from the busy world, allowing me to connect inwards to restore calm. My book is a useful for setting the scene for meditation and it is a nice gift idea for someone who appreciates nature.

  • More Aware of Signs of Stress & Anxiety

    The biggest benefit of the coaching programme was having someone to listen to me, who ‘gets’ what’s going on with me. Caroline helped me to put in place a step by step self-care routine.
