From Above the Surface

  • From Above the Surface

A collection of poetry encapsulating the power and emotion of matrescence - a journey of healing, release and realisation amongst the uproar and joys of motherhood.

This book weaves words, photography and illustrations to bring to life the journey Nicola is sharing; hoping it will reach and lift others in times of struggle.

From Above the Surface includes the poems Nicola wrote during days of motherhood that were a weighted struggle, when it felt like there simply wasn't enough oxygen to breathe in. Then her words begin to take us upwards, towards clearer air and a space of release.

Honest and true, Nicola's writing is raw and grounding, sending out hope to reach others in times of need.

Words by Nicola Dellard-Lyle

Photography by Jo Haycock
