Ambition

One of my ambitions is to sell a few books. OK, I have sold a few books already but not enough to match the ambition. No, I mean a few thousand of one book. The Last Observer, my first novel, probably is the leading candidate for that ambition at least until I can finish the one I am working on at the moment and get it out. The Last Observer has gotten a lot of good reviews but it hasn’t taken off like I had hoped. Check it out… it is a short read and a fast-paced adventure that along the way, will give you a lot to think about on the nature of reality. Join Stanley as he gets sucked into a world of black and white magic. It

The Journey

I see inside with dream-like vision I glide through slinky lines of time Silver lights and golden kites I bathe in light and gently recline Like feeling carelessness’ caress Ripples moving up and down my spine Thunderous sounds so boldly loud Speak? These tongues simply opine Tunnels filled and gently moved along Dancing faeries all in a line I drift and travel onwards still Into worlds and realms of mine Is this truly my heaven then? In the stillness of this un-time Deeper and yet deeper still Into this universe of patient calm Knowing that whatever I foresee I am certain that it’s really mine

Bored

Sitting here Not sure what to do I could start something Or I could do nothing At all The truth is I am bored Bored with my life I’m looking for escape Seeking excitement, or nothing At all Been half a century Actually a little more Been here, been there Actually, almost everywhere It’s all bland All pre-canned So fucking boring Listen, I’m snoring Bored with the politics Bored with nationalism Bored with the fighting And jostling for position Bored with the arguments Bored with the song Bored with almost everything It’s been too long Sitting here Still wondering what to do Shall I start something Or do nothing At all The truth is I am bored Bored with it all I’m wanting excitement Or nothing At all

UDI For Me

All my life I have worked so hard I made some money too But I spent it all on you All my life I wanted something A certain way of life But caved in to the wife U D I Sick of living this lie U D I For ME!

Three Books of Poetry….

I have three books of poetry in print. All are available on Amazon sites in paperback and Kindle formats. This is their story…. I began writing poems when I was a boy. It was an outlet. A few years ago, I found a huge pile of handwritten poems that I had written dating back to 1974 and, trust me, some were just downright embarrassing! Some, however, weren’t all that bad. I put these in a pile and typed them into MS WORD for better keeping and put them all in my poetry directory on my PC. I had about 50 poems there so I once again selected what I thought were some of the best and made them into a book. It was self-published off course but it was a

Where Is My Enthusiasm?

From time-to-time, we lose our way a bit. Distractions or pure bloody laziness are usually to blame. For the last several weeks, it has been the latter for me. I can’t be bothered to meditate I really can’t. I feel flat – not down – but flat, lacking in excitement and with no zest at all for anything. It’s a strange feeling. A bit like treading water or something. Is it the weather, the time of year, my age???? Who knows? In a couple of weeks or so, we move back to Brno and I am hoping that a change of scenery makes the difference and rekindles the fires. What is missing is enthusiasm. Enthusiasm has always been my driving force. The fuel for my engine. My inner fire. Enthusiasm

It’s In The Silence

It’s in the Silence So they say The loudness of the quiet day It’s in the Darkness I’ve heard said The brightness shining in my head It’s in the Void I was told And followed deep to behold It’s in the wind So it reads Not in your dry and powdered creeds It’s deep inside I know this You are the sought after bliss Its where you least expect to find it Hidden in plain sight Ears to hear and eyes to see Inside you will find the light

Reality – Imagined for Free

Here is a poem from my forthcoming book – Astral Messages. It will be published in the Fall after The Last Observer…. Silence is an innaccurate word Loud, it is full of strangeness Listen, for there you find infinity Otherworld’s sounds purred back to us Sight is certainly not to see Filled with images though it may be In fact, there are multitudes of otherworld’s paralleled stacked awaiting Open your senses Imagine and see Open your inner eye Imagine and be Fantasy is fantastical you see Truth fleeting hovers and flits there Grasp it by the toe and we’ll agree Reality is unlimited and imagined for free

Religion

To follow Your words we trust Despite your actions And the countless billions That crossed religions And suffered death or persecution A man who Thinks he knows What God wants Is a dangerous delusion Devilish collusion To further darkness and chaos Religion Your dogma Conform or die Propagate my lie Kill the unbelievers Help make me absolute Man-made lies Not God uttered Satan’s revenge Death and destruction Psycho seduction Kill, hate, maim and persecute For man In the name of God Amen

Life…..

The lines are blurred And faces merged The funniest thing you’ll see Moments in time and space Held close for eternity Just pictures saved by memory Like silent movies played Flickering images passing by Do these belong to me? Or is everything I see From another, not me The colours and the smells The angles lacking symmetry The sounds and sights Images bound in space The inner revelries revealed My life’s tapestry Unraveled Untied Betwixt and between Reality
