Selected Poetry: 2012-2014

47 pages16 minutes


In this selection of her poems, chosen and arranged by the poet, you'll find consolation and inspiration.

Here are poems that offer shifting interpretations of identity, poems that rework ancient Irish blessings, poems about life and liberty and the conditions for happiness. 

Exploring what it feels like to reach, to hold, and to return to light after darkness, this selection presents the purest practice of the theory Orna Ross expounds in her Go Creative! books. Take flight within the space within the words.

"Ross' verse is technically brilliant, emotionally beguiling and at times startling. A powerhouse of a poetry collection."  kaleeM rajA

"With this little book of big, big poems, Orna Ross reaches into the corners of your soul and pulls out all that is beautiful, all that is painful, all that is so very human. Solid and fluid, inspiring and humbling, and always very, very real."
