Poet's Corner

The Future brought to you with hope

Rocket Take Off

The future, brought to you with hope,

life on other planets.

it’s intelligence amassed

we desire to talk about life’s meaning

let the dreaming of the universe unfold.

In the dark matters of space

we chase the idea

of meeting advanced civilisations 

which could work with our own

to solve the problems of universe together not alone.

for we know that life is fragile state 

and it needs to be preserved

let our words be gentle

and let our intentions be good

for we mean to be understood.

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.
