Spotlight: Trisha McCourt

Hi All

It's a wonderful day to shine the spotlight on someone I find highly talented. Today, it is an honor to share with you the poetry of Trisha McCourt!

I first began reading Trisha's work over a year ago. I was immediately impressed and have followed her poetry since. Her poems have been featured in several publications, to include my first anthology, "Spotlight".

In addition to being an outstanding writer, Trisha is an amazing person and a treasured friend. She's awesome - all-around - and I'm very happy to have her (and her poetry) in my life.

Here is Trisha in her own words:

Writing is soul catharsis. My furry soulmate, Godfrey, is doggo therapy for my heart, soul, and mind. Words are like a candy addiction (chocolate of course). I write because my voice hides behind my shyness.

Here are two poems written by Trisha McCourt - and I know you'll love them as much as I do! ______________

Soul Sounds

Is it all just hype The mystical sounds From tubes of pipe

Soothes a soul Ethereal notes Make one whole

No beating of a drum A waterfall of harmony Brought on by windy hums

Delicate melody of comfort Played by nature With a metal support

Take a breath Deeply, to relax Block out the rest

Follow the soul’s lead Immerse the self-complete Partake in this personal need

Savor the sound Soul music All around ____

Digger Diggin'

Surfing echoes For sounds no longer heard Happy giggles Gone but remembered

Sifting through mountains Yesterday's trash Disposable mementos Mile markers for a different path

Sorting bones a plenty Remnants of broken dreams Finding a preserved rose Disintegrating with a simple breath

Moments dusty on a back shelf Following clues Spectral remains in gothic fog Ever searching for leftovers

A backyard archeologist Looking for the ultimate find What was once lost To find my soul And begin living life again.
