Poet's Corner

God is a rainbow

God is a rainbow
a kaleidoscope of colours
all lights all shades
arrayed in beauty.

All promise, all thought, all action
we are God
all people one body
even the beggar on the street is your brother
a single mum could be your mother.

One person, one goal to love
we are the alpha the omega
it all starts in us.
All experience is ours
good, bad, happy or sad.

All experience is necessary to be who we are
to be perfect is to be ourselves
the only imperfect thing is to not be true to ourselves
our own God.

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.
