Poet's Corner

Ancient Aliens

Ancient Aliens from beyond our stars
come from a universe that’s in decline
where their stars that once shined bright
now there is dark forever cold night.
They seek refuge and other intelligent life
to nurture our species for space travel
and other mysteries to unravel
yes they come in peace
for they have set up a utopian world
back where they live
and that’s how they became so advanced
because they worked together
and gave up on war
because they knew it would destroy their planet even more.
Ancient Aliens they look nothing like me and you
however they may of met us in another guise
as angels who made our worlds collide.

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.
