AFTERGLOW OF ZEPHYRS

Bringing together for the first time the complete collection to date of Anti War and Conflict Poetry that also includes a selection of brand new poems published here for the first time. Also featured is a special lyrical prologue and epilogue written by the legendary rock band Hawkwind with grateful thanks to Dave Brock their founder member. War by its nature is visual, brutal and shocking and the poetry ranges from tangental obliqueness to being hauntingly and uncomfortably detailed and hopefully will give the reader a more meditative or contemplative reflective understanding of just how fragile humanity is and always has been.

ZIG ZAG ROAD

The book of poetry features a prologue and epilogue by Judie Tzuke our great british singer and songwriter. Thoughtfully provocative, a little autobiographical and atmospheric - the book has been accepted to be placed within Liverpool's city archives for posterity to the end of time. Scattered randomly throughout the book are a series of Haiku works inspired and woven by our natural world of sensual humanity, remembering that poetry is often written to stir emotion or passion. And yes in the end you will have meandered down “Zig Zag Road”

IN VIOLET

Poetry can be like a gentle breeze that caresses the face and tousles the hair slightly. Sometimes the words create a storm of emotions so intense, that the reader may be angry, weep or smile. And that’s what poems are all about. This collection was first published to rave reviews in 2011 and this tenth anniversary edition includes a prologue and epilogue by Nick Drake used with kind permission of his estate Bryter Layter and you will find an eclectic mix of autobiographical - nostalgic - environmental - lyrical and reflective range of poems and prose remembering that "Violet" is a colour at the fringes of the spectrum, barely visible but there just the same.

 There are gems here - Poetry Space

 

The poetry is beautiful and the collection has the intriguing quality of an autobiographical set of poems. In particular and I love the fact that the poems evoke a sense of place and yearning that refer to the past.

The poetry is like a gentle breeze that caresses the face and tousles the hair slightly. Sometimes, the words create a storm of emotions so intense, that the reader will be forced to sit up and read again and again.

I am once again struck by the child-like wonder in them … refreshing … endearing … many of them are ravishingly beautiful in their simplicity and accuracy.
