A poem about a train wreck.
This collection of poetry contains some of my personal favourite poems of all times - Steel Lord obviously, my ode to Lord Lucian; but there are also some other poems that I've always particularly loved, such as Mission, The Alien Hunter, and Unicorn Union which gives the collection its title.
One day I'll find an open mike poetry night somewhere and read Unicorn Union out aloud ...
Whilst transferring an old static website, this collection of poetry exercises called Sanctuary Poems dated March 2000 was found in a sub folder.
These poetry exercises use imagery of environments (Project Sanctuary habitats) to create a metasong flow. But apart from that, they're cool and even the html is a poetic blast from the past.
Enjoy The Sanctuary Poems.
I was just uploading a piece of art called Angel City when this poem came to me.

The other day, this poem, The Oldest Castle, sprang to mind when I was trying to explain to someone why you mustn't give up too soon when you are dealing with memories and trying to remember a genesis event. After much searching, today I finally found it - dated 5.6.1994.

A gentleman wrote: "I would love to write a love poem for my wife - it is our anniversary - but I'm no good with words ... Can you recommend a poem for a husband who can't write a love poem?"
So I wrote one specially for all those gentlemen out there who don't have the words, with material assistance from Lord Lucian, and on their behalf. Enjoy!
I asked for a metasong to start off the new decade on the 1st of the 1st, 2011, and duely, The Time Chamaeleon was delivered to me.
As is the case with classic metasong, it wants to be spoken and heard rather than just read; so if you read the Time Chamaeleon out aloud, you will get more of a sense what it is about and why it is here ...

Whilst working on a catalogue of paintings, in which I have added as a detail if there is a poem or a story to go with the painting, I came across the German poem Zaubervogel.
I was going to add it to the catalogue as was, but then decided to translate the German poem into English. As I'm the author, and therefore know "what I was trying to say" (!) this was easy and interesting too.
Here is the original German poem Der Zaubervogel and my translation, the Magic Bird. Oh, and the painting. Of course ... :-)
