Myths and Legends


 “We are all of us, built on a foundation of myths that contain their opposites, both logical and lived. What does it mean to be called good, if evil and the potential for evil do not live in the world and in you?”
Myth come true

Humanity has always been interested in myths. It’s borne out of  our desire to understand the world. Myths are how humanity makes sense of what can often seem a strange, cruel and unforgiving world. Imagine the first people to see lightning. How terrified would they have been?

Of Strings and Broken Things

The Marionette

A world of puppets - 
tangled in strings.
Trapped with ties that bind - 
to a cruel unflinching world.

But we close our eyes.
Pretend to be free.
Pretend we do not see - 
The strings that bind you and me.
There are no strings on me

Shooting Holes

The Siren

Sing a simple song
A siren that guides mankind
on its way back home

You and me...

There's something about Haiku


A haiku a day
keeps the good doctor away
So I always say
Left, to inner peace

Love in the Time of Science Fiction

The Void

Beyond a dark and silent yonder,
A distant sun hides a star that burns -  
incandescent and all consuming.
Leaving faint dust and monochrome
supernova trailing its wake.

A distant light - a kind of foghorn,
calling out in blackest night,
Evaporates nightmares - 
Leaving daydreams behind,
Of love - borne of first sight.
Traps us all night
