Daydreams in Mermaid Grass by Natalie Williams
Daydreams in Mermaid Grass began in a dream. What happens when we sleep, before we fall into those deepest, unknown places? Why do we have no recollection of what has taken place but awake with a heightened sense of something indefinable? This uniquely transcendent collection of poetry offers a peek into a world where the wildest dreams and nightmares culminate in an all-consuming whirlwind ride. A dream state like that of the title, where Time’s journey stops and unimagined things reach out from another universe as you slip softly into the unknown.
In her verse, Natalie Williams summons up the world of Bracken, a mesmerising realm populated by fantastical creatures. Serpent dragons journeying on quests that reflect all wrongdoing, princesses clothed in darkness and the enigmatic ‘Speaker’ are just some of the treasures that await. Take her hand and let her magical dream-verse lead you into the world of Daydreams in Mermaid Grass.
Natalie Williams was born in 1981 in the newly born country of Zimbabwe on the purple carpeted Jacaranda Lane of African/Irish descent. Life was filled in her early years with Irish fairy tales written by her grandfather and inspirational imaginings in the world of Narnia and Grimm’s’ Fairy Tales. In the inspiring world of Africa, she began her journey as a writer winning an Honours award for her poem “The Thicket and the Musgrove” at the age of nine.
