Poet's Corner

Is your reality hiding down the rabbit hole?

And there you have it,
the fight for your soul
to control your minds amazing maze
did Alice dream your reality
is it hiding down a rabbit hole
in the twists and turns of fibre optic-tics
a ghost in your machine
Laying around scheming your dreams
the distance between us could be rubbed out by an eraser
we are stuck with gravity to the earth
colliding with others causing children’s births
we are part of the universe
watching itself
If you go deeper
it won’t be good for your mental health
or it might I can never tell
whether this heaven or hell
but I know this love is the adventure
and it is stronger than all certainty.

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.
