Dip Into Something New

Slip away for a few hours, into other worlds - away from all the troubles of this one. Perhaps into the future - a near-future - dark and disturbing and yet - so close. There, follow the fates of four people worn down and broken, angry with the system. Who break out of it, try… Continue reading Dip Into Something New

Consciousness Cubed
Andervayne's Dream, Poetry, Writing

Consciousness Cubed

Unlike the other poems in this collection, this is not a tale. Instead, it is a stream of consciousness. I let my thoughts flow wherever they wanted to go, however, it uses a very strict form, so I had to channel those thoughts within the gullies created by the structures. Get it now Kindle, Softcover… Continue reading Consciousness Cubed

Will You Follow the Knight

Will You Follow the Knight

Another allegory in the form of a tale of a knight. This is the shortest of the poems but still long at over 1200 words. The story is similar to Andervayne’s dream but with a simpler message. Get it now Kindle, Softcover or Hardback.

The Golden Man
Andervayne's Dream, Poetry, Writing

The Golden Man

This was originally supposed to be the libretto for an opera. I wrote the words but it turned out it was too word heavy. The project was never completed so I dusted it off, edited and turned it into an epic poem. There is no real structure here beyond rhyming and making it ‘songlike” but… Continue reading The Golden Man

Star Dancer
Andervayne's Dream, Poetry, Writing

The Tales of the Star Dancer

This is a much older poem and much more lighthearted. It has a strange format which is simply the structure of each twinned verse. It does not go beyond that. It is a flight of fantasy, magic without bounds, just letting my imagination run wild for the fun of it. Get it now Kindle, Softcover… Continue reading The Tales of the Star Dancer

Andervayne’s Dream

This is the longest and by far the most complex of the works here. The main bulk of the poem follows a very strict format (the Prologue and Epilogue are purposefully outside this format and there is meaning in that too). Part of that format informs the inclusion of much of the symbolism within and… Continue reading Andervayne’s Dream

An Attempt at Opera!

This is something different. I was digging around my old files and found a full libretto I wrote for an opera that never got off the ground. A good friend of mine actually wrote a lot of the music to go with it but in the end, it was too ambitious for us. We ended… Continue reading An Attempt at Opera!

Andervayne’s Dream and Other Poems

In these times of quick gratification and short attention spans, I decided to try and buck the trend and present something not only with greater length but also depth. The poems in this collection were written over a long period and for different purposes. They are varied but they are all long. And they all… Continue reading Andervayne’s Dream and Other Poems
