Postcard From Ireland
I think of you in lands like these
Wonderful, inspiring lands
With sweeping bays and rugged knocks, Cork’s
Sleepy bailes and poetry folk
Blush sunsets over Irish seas
I miss you most on days like these
Musical, magical days
When tale and ballad sound so real, that
Myth and legend disappear
And all is likely in our dreams
I reach for you at times like these
Wishful, need for sharing times
Sliabh or ocean – you are near, I hear
Your voice – soft and clear, and
Feel you kiss me on the breeze.
Lesley Young – Writer and Poet
Lesley specialises in helping senior managers in the NHS and not for profit sectors to cope with the challenges they face in bringing about sustainable change. She has also run her own organisational consultancy business since 2010, and is an accredited and experienced life and business coach.
But Lesley is first and foremost a writer and poet and has been writing for more than 30 years. She likes her writing to be of the moment and immediate, which means that she leans mostly towards poetry and short stories. She has been a member of the Scarborough Writers’ Circle for 8 years, where she currently holds the committee role of publicity and website officer.
Lesley is passionate about making a difference. The healing powers of poetry, and the written and spoken word, underpin and feature in Lesley’s work always. She has a growing interest in storytelling and memoir, and has several projects in the pipeline – one of which is to develop her interest in running writing retreats, and the other to publish some of her own writing.
