Metaphysical Balm

Poems by Michèle Betty

by Michèle Betty

Metaphysical Balm is a collection of poetry that utilises the lyrical subject, “Owl”, who is transmuted and transfigured through various guises, rituals, visions, histories, myths and physical and spiritual bodies, becoming a symbol for wisdom, inquisitiveness, religious longing, introspection, transfiguration and femininity.  The collection is a journey of spiritual fulfillment and physical healing from birth to adulthood, from death to the spiritual unknown.

“Michele Betty’s collection with its protagonist Owl, breaks open the doors that keep life’s mysteries hidden from view. Mystical and yet deeply grounded in the human(e) these are the sorts of poems which flood heart and brain with a brilliant, bloody light”

Meg Vandermerwe
