trish Shields - Author and Poet

This is a small collection of poetry aimed at individuals that suffer from depression, clinical or otherwise. Published by Passion Among The Cacti Press, 2005.

Granite Reflection

for me
the colour blue
means clear skies

memories of the Columbia Ice Fields
my children's eyes flashing cobalt
with baby dimples and toddler smiles

grey is the zone
that grips my soul
wrenching my cries

endless days embattled fromm without
when feast of sleep is deprived within
granite reflection for miles and miles
grey is the zone
that grips my soul
wrenching my cries

About the Publication by Katherine L. Gordon
This is a brave little book. Many of the poems collected here appeared over the course of this long winter on the participoet list serve for The Canadian Poetry Association. I noticed the pattern of thoughts reflected there did not belong precisely to the bony squeeze of a winter's hand on the heart, but came more from a longer season's experiences with a deeper, more prolonged depression. We shared transient griefs, and bitter, prolonged journeys into despair. Writing of them allowed a little light into the darkest corners. It took courage to examine the truth and commonality of this condition. Some of the expressions here have resulted in provocative, sympathetic and rather beautiful poetry. We hope that this collection will reach out to clasp hands with any in despair, so that they will recognize some understanding, some acknowledgement of suffering, and most poignantly that they are not alone.

March 2005.
