Once a Century or so

It was a very big day yesterday. After 110 years, Hull City played in the FA Cup final for the first time. Its still incredible to me that The Tigers are in the Premier League and an FA Cup was simply the icing on an already desirable cake. I was pretty nervous. Arsenal are a team whose squad is worth many many more times that of Hull City. They are a big club and they play good football. Classy even. I had in the back of my mind a 3-0 or 4-0 drubbing to be honest particularly since Hull City hadn’t played so well the last few weeks. In the two games against Arsenal, we lost 5-0 on aggregate in the league. Imagine my surprise when within 8 minutes of

Review of the forthcoming Moon Whispers by Gordon Strong

Many thanks to Gordon Strong for taking the time to do a pre-release review of Moon whispers – available next week… Moon Whispers ~ A new poetry collection by Dr. G. Michael Vasey ‘Moon Whispers – A new poetry collection’ is the fourth outing into the world of lyric and melody by Michael Vasey. This continually fascinating and ever-maturing writer has succeeded in assembling a cornucopia of new ideas, visions, and comments on his personal universe and the world ‘out there’. A title like ‘Julia Robert’s Smile’ is typical of the poet’s wry humour. These lines from another piece neatly combine word play and a satirical edge. Bit by bit Revelations Byte by byte Animations The combination of the classic and the contemporary is never far away. A line like

Chat – Its Fate

One benefit of having a publisher is they do manage to get publicity you may not have been able to get yourself. In this case, the story published is honestly inaccurate and very sensationalized. The stories are loosely based on those I talked about in Inner Journeys: Explorations of the Soul (Thoth, 2006) but you know what, it has close to a 100,000 circulation and who knows…. maybe it will help sell a few books and add a few blog visits. There I am holding a copy of my novel – The Last Observer (Roundfire Books, 2013) in the lower right hand of the article. amazingly, what I was actually holding in that photo was a beer but I guess they photoshopped it… likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0

Moon whispers – Coming Very Soon

My fourth collection of poetry – and I think my best (but then I would wouldn’t I?) is days away from publication. Here is what it looks like….. It will shortly be available from all Amazon sites and more in paperback form. I will probably also do a kindle version but I find issues with formatting poetry in kindle so it may appear a few days later. Meanwhile, here is what Dielle Ciesco, author of The Unknown Mother: A Magical Walk with the Goddess of Sound and Your True Voice: Tools for Embracing a Fully Expressed Life has to say about the collection… G. Michael Vasey understands the power of the word. In Moon Whispers, he takes obvious care not to convolute a simple message, exercising an economy of words

Best Plans

Entrenched Rain falls We are drenched Please take note Next time Bring your raincoat Inside me Rain falls Puddles building silently Can it be You know Something that you can see Clouds bursting Water flows Something is hurting In Reality Things don’t Always go to plan hands in the rain.

Reality Defining

Winding, twisting, turning Deeply rebellious instincts Having fun fondling eternity And loving in the falling rain Indigenous erogenous foolery Unwinding, deeply chicane Saratoga thoughts abound The definitive Musical opus With absolutely no sound A secretive spoken secret A seared ripple in time A wise golden pomegranate A Sonic primal scream An observer just watching Shhh, He will never tell Silence speaks silently The world still turns Periodically violently Waiting on the arrow Whose narrow flight begins Waiting on the sharpness When the axe will fall It’s catastrophic nature Finally revealed to all The world is unwinding Unrolling, unfolding Reality defining likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0

Am I Insane?

More or less anything I have ever done I have found a way to be successful with. Ok, successful doesn’t mean in my lexicon gaining notoriety or fame. It just means successful. I am adaptable and I can learn new things. But this selling books lark seems to be the biggest challenge I have ever met. I’m a poor seller it seems. I had hoped for The Last Observer. It is fast-paced, exciting, magical and if you know what to look for, its full of real magic. It has quantum physics, parallel universes, an evil magician, a demon by the name of the Lord of the Elements. It has some love interest, a tad of violence. It’s a pretty good little story and many of the reviewers seem to to

Politic

The building shakes you awake Caricatures of unimportant people Small minded ignorance In the cold light of day Torture and twist the minds of the people With the ancient mode of your elders Shatter the innocence of youth Punish the sick under your roof Material possessions not allowed And share and share alike Rich people made poor, poor made rich Xenophobia gone mad to the end of time Sickness of the communal mind Togetherness in folly Well – you keep your ideology We’ll put it in an ivory tower And laugh from afar You can keep your systems Freshly painted, in a jar Invent your weapons of destruction We’ll have the last laugh At the power of your deduction Gone wrong Politic image Politic from Weird Tales: Otherworld Poetry by
