Poet's Corner

Cosmic Balance Dance

A little ray of hope
across a midnight sky
a time for all time,
a light to shine.
Sunrise and sunset caught in one net
for ever fighting to stay one.
A moon and a sun wanting to be as one
to set together,
in a time lost in forever.
Earth moon and stars fade together
a longing that fades into forever.

The Alpha and Omega fading in and out
longing to be together but always in doubt.
A rainbow brings hope, 
a new way to cope
we all need that hope

to stop salt filled tears from falling,
though they oil the way for another day.

A spiritual love poem about hope in the face of struggle.

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.
