Lazarus

Memories fade as the years gently pass The urgency of attraction has gone too Wished fond goodbye as the years flew But Lazarus sings still from time to time Our bond slowly strengthens bit by bit Shared experiences and the pass of time Takes care of that my dear partner in crime As our Lazarus makes his soulful reappearance Who would have ever have given us a chance at all The unlikely impossibleness of such a meeting Our differences should have made our time fleeting But beautiful Lazarus was our siren song Kept us together all along.

Painting with Words

Before me A blank piece of paper I paint with words Swirling deep vowel hues Pictures emerge With every word I choose It’s a thrill To slap those words around Messy fun with letters Alliterations Descriptive nouns Verbal variations Masterpiece Letters joined together Similar sounding sounds Discordant vibes A mixed vocal pallet used by Artistic scribes

Review City

I just popped over to the official The Last Observer page at Roundfire Books and it struck me that it has been reviewed by a hell of lot of people. Fortunately, the vast majority of those reviews have been very good. I will say that the book has been a success on many levels and was well accepted. I am still pushing sales and readers of course…… Read the reviews here. Thanks to everyone that has purchased it or reviewed it – it is much appreciated but please do tell others to give it a spin too please! Meanwhile, I have another book out – Moon Whispers – a new collection of 30 poems. I really think these are my strongest and most vibrant poems and I wrote them listening

Conforming to Conformity

Patterns in thinking Growing up like I did Gave me food for thought A brainwashed kid? Taught to see your world The way you all did Adopting your reality from the Bottom of the pyramid And if I did break free Ah, God forbid Would you persecute me Until I am rid Of all those original thoughts? Simply splendid My mind under lock and key Forever hid.

Big Man

Clouds collide The Big Man Upstairs is moving again Packing his bags And stomping his feet Thunder rolls across the land Rain falls in sheer sheets Hanging heavy Pregnant steam Electricity in motion Sparking an arc Lightening issues forth Flashing an angry stab Vicious energetic force The Big Man is angry In fury, he spits The elements Fire and water Sound and fury Thundering flashes Of Godlike rage The fire of His anger Soon subsides Water falls more gently Washes away the ire And soon peace returns Radiant warmth in azure sky Free of all concerns

Moon Whispers – A Shameless Plug for Sales.

So as we approach another weekend and some leisure time I will give my new collection of poetry one more plug and then let it die quietly like all the others.

Moon Whispers A new collection of 30 poems about life, reality and everything. 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 when it is due, to reveal clean, crisp vignettes of his inner landscape. From tantalizing

Blackfield and Moon Whispers

I have enjoyed the music of Steven wilson (Porcupine Tree) for many years now and have all four albums from Blackfield, a project in which Steven wilson partnered with Aviv Geffen to create some of the most melodic and listenable music I heave ever heard. Tunes like Pain and Where is my love? have haunted me for years. Recently, however, I got a hold of Blackfield II and this is almost heaven. The songs 1000 People and The End of the World are incredible and send me to aural heaven immediately. About 3 months ago I started listening to this record over and over again finding that each time I did I had to write. 1000 People in particular seems to make my creative juices spurt in vast quantities and

We Dared to Dream

Yesterday, we dared to dream Hoped to mark our spot in history Engraved our name in time Yesterday, we came out strong A shock really did look on It’s been more than a century Players have come and gone I even went to school with one Yesterday, we dared to dream And what a long wait it’s been The Tigers’ shone yesterday Just like that other rhyme Burning brightly under London skies And 10 minutes after kick off It looked as if we may pull it off In the end it wasn’t to be But the Tigers marked Their place in history Written indelibly We dared to dream!
