Underground Haiku

by Jeremy Yunt

Using one of poetry’s most accessible and oldest forms, “Underground Haiku: Notes from Below” takes the reader on an inner journey spanning a wide range of themes and moods. These are moving poems that, as one wise man said, “evoke an experience of temporary enlightenment, in which we see into the life of things.”

URBANIA electronic/extended edition

by Steve Downes

First Published 2010, this edition 2013

Note from the Author

Urbania is a collection evolved from my previous work with Roger Hudson on Side/Angles (Cityscapes), where I wrote poems based in and around Dublin and London. I wanted to take the concepts of Cityscapes further and so Urbania is part prophetic, part fanciful and sometimes all too real.

I’ll let the poems speak for themselves .. enjoy

This edition has been extended from the original 20 poems to 40 (including never before published and new poems)



The Dance Of The Child

by Nicolas Guy Williams

A single long poem expanded from the idea of evolving a new mythology for the 21st Century, containing themes of love, death, society seen from below, and exploration of prophetic vision, shamanic spirituality in modern life.

The Dance of the Child represents in the form of a western linked haikai (sequence of haiku), the turning of the world from the birth of time to the death of time … the poem is carefully subdivided into 11 cantos – an old western form of poem sometimes called a cantus uses this form inside each canto – there are three sections (the argument); (the Haikai); and (the envoi). The argument attempts to show a dancer or dancers on a stage – sometimes ballet – sometimes a whole troop engaged in a stage of the dance. The Haikai attempts to show what each movement represents in a mythological dance of images and concepts in small linked haiku stanzas which do away with japanese self contained format but instead flow from one haiku into the next as in the tradition of western poetry. The Envoi attempts to magnify some of the symbology behind the images inside the haikai to add an extra layer of meaning – in such a way this poem represents the 3 dimensional world and the 4th dimensional world and the 5th dimensional world and so on and so forth ever upwards and downwards … my first attempt at a multidimensional poem 🙂



Down the Hole We Go

by Andrew S. Hinkinson

Down the Hole We Go is Andrew’s second poetry collection to be made available through Amazon.

The poet expresses a desire for Better Ears with which to listen, gets inside the head of an internet Troll, expresses a Gardener’s Lament and compares friends growing apart to continental drift. Nature is a love poem to all things living. Ageing is the subject of Walnut. Nero makes use of the infamous Roman Emperor as a metaphor for self-destruction.

The collection ends with A Better World, a poem that offers up a hopeful prayer for a clean and sustainable future.
