JULIE FIELD

 

 

 

Julie Field

Rugadh Julie Field i gcathair Chorcaí, ach tá sí lonnaithe i nGleann Maghair anois. Bhain sí céim (1H) amach sa Ghaeilge i UCC 2007, chomh maith le MPhil sa Ghaeilge 2012. Cáilíodh í mar mhúinteoir bunscoile le déanaí le Hibernia. Baineann clú agus cáil léi mar performance poet (Julie Goo), agus corónaíodh í mar seaimpín na Mumhan i 2013. Roghnaíodh í chun dul go Coventry anuraidh don Cork-Coventry Twin Cities Poetry Exchange , agus foilsíodh a céad chapbook. Tá idir dhánta, ghearrscéalta agus amhráin cumtha aici.

 

 

 

 

 

Dubhachas

 

 

An t-uaigneas

 an t-anró

ach tá faoiseamh le fáil i bhfocail;

litreacha na haibítre ag siosarnach san oíche.

 

Éirím os cionn mo chraicinn

scrúdaím mo scáil

scaiptear an cheo

nochtar mo chuid lochtanna;

soitheach folamh suite

ar imeall na leapa

ag éisteacht le péisteanna teibí

 ag neadú ‘s ag cothú

ar neart na hiarlaise,

múnlach mar ghruaig

roic mar shúile

giorrúchán mar mheangadh

ag cruthú mo mhúnla nua.

 

Mo chroí ag sní ó cheardaí

go ceardaí, ó ghlúin go glúin

ó luan go luan

ach is ceardaí mise leis

nach féidir púróga mo shaoil

a cheangal, a chneasú ‘s

mé féin a dhealbhú

níos láidre

níos áille ‘s

mo scáil a chaitheamh

ar mhothúcháin ghránna.

 

An t-uaigneas

 an t-anró

ach tá faoiseamh le fáil i bhfocail

litreacha na haibítre ag siosarnach san oíche.
