Dublin born Photopoet Siobhan Maher overcame everything. Writing poetry became a comfort and therapy while Siobhan struggled through a childhood of ill health and learning issues. Siobhan has now lived a full life with a doctorate from UCC, three wonderful children and a beautiful home. Nowadays Dr. Siobhan Maher (PhD) has happily swapped scientific journals and thesis writing for her beloved Photopoetry.
In 2022 Siobhan developed the dream to marry her passion for nature photography with her love for creating poetry and sincerely hopes you enjoy the creation that is Journeying – Photopoetry to Revive your Soul.
Siobhan writes poetry that is both finely crafted and echoes a deep affinity with nature. Not content with remaining in the written medium, Siobhan uses photography to bring a different understanding to her words. The ultimate culmination of which is Journeying – Photopoetry to revive your Soul.
Journeying is both earthy and transcending, with the poet aiming to open readers’ hearts and bring them inner tranquillity through an artful marriage of word and image. Journeying can also be appreciated as an exercise in mindfulness and meditation, an invaluable tool to help ease stress and dwell on what is truly meaningful.
The poem on page 60 of Journeying – Photopoetry to Revive your Soul mirrors a sunrise reflection onto Dublin bay:
The glow of sunrise
Creating fairy sparkles
Redness dashes away blackness
As we dive into
A new day
A new dawn
A new beginning.
We are the keepers of this awakening.
