Beyond Poetry became the first time I managed to completely and truly get out of my own way to allow the words to flow through me 100 percent from my higher self or source. Originally conceived as simply a follow-up to my 2015 poetry collection A Healing for Gaia, the message of Beyond Poetry both added to and then quite naturally totally transcended my collection of two years previously.
Writing this celebration of nature and life has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience for your friendly poet. Inspiration came from the land, ancient legends and folklore, and the stories of ordinary people from pre-history right through to contemporary lives in the 21st century.
My intention, right from the beginning, had been to create a collection of exquisitely beautiful poems. I wanted these poetic tales to stand the test of time, to be relevant, and appreciated a hundred or thousand years from now.
Beyond Poetry surprised me with the way it came to be. I dedicate this book to all of my listeners, with a wish for you to feel as inspired as I did when it was created.
