Poet's Corner

All the memories we keep

All the memories we keep
Will stay with us.
Friendship that goes deep
Will always be
Wrapped in the pages of our history.
Sitting and chatting
Nattering away
about this and that.
About what’s happening in our lives
and with other friends.
Can you feel the warmth ?
The friendly glow?
Of the friendship we share
the knowing smile
the connection we have with each other
will always be.
When we sit and talk and remember
the moments we share,
will always grace my mind
throughout all time.


About the author

Dan Hooks

Hi there my name is Dan Hooks and I am a poet.

My poetry has many diverse themes from madness to the mundane, from fantasy and fable to philosophical and the darkness of reality (whatever that is).

I have been writing since I was 18 and have inspired other artists such as Benjamin Heine who created an piece of art work called”filled with fire” from my poem called “Freedom”. That poem was inspired from a quote from Nelson Mandela saying “we are free to be free”. Writing I find is a collaborative process.

I have also written other poems which have been used in language courses in America, Canada and Australia. One of which is called “poem on identity” and the other one is “Antithesis”.

I have a soundcloud account in which I post poems to music and my spoken word pieces. I find spreading my work on various social media platforms really useful for presenting my work.

I am also fond of travelling and have climbed Mount Fuji in Japan visited Finland skied in both USA in keystone Colorado and Whistler in Canada. I find perspective can be found in travelling to other countries and it also helps you appreciate other cultures as well your own.
