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!

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

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

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

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

In the last few days I have pulled together a bunch of recent poems to be published as Moon Whispers – A New Collection.
