November 25, 2020 – A longtime teacher and practitioner of Transcendental Meditation, Ann Purcell has just released her latest collection of poetry, “Droplets of Heaven”. The work comprises 50 short poems, written straight from the heart, with each verse unfolding a poignant truth for further reflection and learning.
Ann has dedicated “Droplets of Heaven” to all the teachers of her life, and the work itself makes for a great learning guide. The verses, written in a simple and direct style, were inspired by the practice of Transcendental Meditation and the TM-Sidhi technique, and incorporate the teachings of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Going beyond, they also beautifully capture the serenity, peace and stillness of nature.
“Like Wordsworth said, poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings. In this collection, each poem is a succinct reflection and hopefully will inspire your own insights,” says Ann Purcell.
The work is divided into four sections – Love, Silence, Nature and Reflections. About love, the author begins with a brief, poignant verse on how lovers always worry about those they love, and then ends with the wish to always remain worried. In ‘Krishna’s Flute’, she desires the entire universe to wake up and reverberate to the celestial sounds she makes with Krishna’s flute. In ‘Silence, Speak to Me’, the author wants silence to speak to her, as she loves its voice, going beyond the noise in her head. She likes the fact that in stillness, there is no choice but to listen.
“What a perfect way to start a Sunday. Your words are soothing and nourishing to my soul. Perfect for a quick return to how truly meaningful are love, peace, stillness and presence for the mind,” says Liz Newman, a recent reader.
An excerpt from Love:
Cups are for drinking.
Let me drink now
The nectar that makes
My cup overflow
