It was some strange time in the morning So early it was still night and without sunlight The air was so cold and you could hear a pin drop I shivered involuntarily and tried to sleep But there it was again The deepest of sighs rattling like a death breath My blood ran cold I strained to listen hearing the loudness of total silence But there it was again A scraping rustling sound scratching along the hallway My heart palpitated At any moment now that door will begin to open At any moment now I will scream with all my lungs And there will be nothing there Nothing there at all And I will lay and pray That the morning sun rises soon illuminating my room And ensuring that myRead More »
I am but a small and fragile flame I flicker and seek to grow I think myself apart and Desire to grow much brighter To enflame the World The Truth is I am of the Fire I am simply a part of the whole Awareness is all I really desire I am the fire And I am of The Fire An aspect of the One From the book Astral Messages by Dr. G. Michael Vasey available on all Amazon sites.Read More »
The Power of a Song!
It’s just a song But it echoes of yesterday. Memories are triggered By a simple set of chords. Images floating on by Regrets or perhaps simply Happy cherished memories. The simple power of a song Was that a good time? If only I could go back there Meet people and go back to places Now long gone and passed by Perhaps meaningless at the time Taken in with that fleeting feeling Of immortality that only comes With the arrogance of our youth.Read More »
Easter Monday Freebies
Happy Easter from me. On Easter Monday and just for the day, you can grab a Kindle version of my first two books of poetry for FREE…. Don’t miss it! Poems for the Little Room, Lulu, 2012 This is my second book of poetry originally published via Lulu but now re-published via Creatspace to get it wider availability and a better price. It combines images and poems that range from a humorous look at a Czech TV interviewer Jan Kraus through to stories of idyllic love – both for partner and daughter. The idea behind this over sized book was that it would be ideal for that little room where guests only want something to leaf through for a short time! Hence its name….

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 aRead More »
A little reminiscing Passing of a life Not even thrilling It’s been a long ride Dancing through time Losing my pride Where did it go Where did they go All of those people All of those places Those ups and those oh so downs Times and time, sand grains falling Moments of glory and moments of hell Moments when you knew that you’d done well Listening to second hand Bolan A Child of his revolution Just like that Jean Jeanie Crossing the Atlantic Ocean Houston, I heard you calling Or am I confusing you with the Clash? All that trans Energy wasted Never did make my splash Where did it go What did I really do All of those faces All of those names The heights and the valleys TheRead More »
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. EnthusiasmRead More »
I Used To Dream
I used to dream Imagine how things might be Created thousands of lives for me As singer, sailor, spy Conceivably, I have done everything That one could ever do But none of it was true. I used to dream Imagine strange places off afar And the long leisurely drives there by car In BMW, Mercedes, Porsche I have driven everything Far and wide and at some speed too But none of it was true I used to dream Imagine how things had once been History lived, experienced and seen As King, Prince, Earl I have charmed and dined Fought and loved, but right on cue I knew none of it was true I once had a dream Lived it every day and every night It didn’t work out quite rightRead More »
