for using thought-provoking imagery are varied, but can be a message to
communicate from the purity of the heart, or a conclusion that I have prior
reached to which I move a narrative from the start slowly through the poem to
enquiringly prompt the reader to a similar conclusion.
I find that writing poetry in times of high emotion and intimate connection with a theme the easiest to write, as opposed to lack of pure inspiration being the hardest.
I purposefully attempt to write on differing levels to allow the reader to either enjoy the message on the surface or read deeper to find something that might stir the heart or jolt a thought never previously contemplated in the mind.
I hope after reading the poetry the reader takes away that beauty and abundance is within all things, whether the theme be good, bad or indifferent, and that the poetry stimulates a state of mind which is clear, pure and happy.
Having studied various philosophical views and perspectives over the past fifteen years I feel I have developed a poetic style that captivates and engages the reader. Not only on the surface but while encouraging the beautiful, deeper consciousness to develop deeper levels of thought.
In my new book, Poems From An Empty Mind, I feel I have been able to captivate the reader with highly engaging verses of joy, beauty and tranquillity, while contrasting emotive and contemplative experiences.
This ambitious, thought-provoking collection of quality poetry encourages the reader to delve deeper into the text to discover the messages of inner peace, pure being and happiness to be found in an open and empty mind.
A variety of verse styles are bound together by an enriching, mindful theme, which encourages the reader to ponder and explore the beautiful nature of life, one's thoughts and pure mind.
