Earthwizard's Realms of Faërie

Earthwizard's Realms of Faërie

Poetry is magic come alive. It is the ancient power of the Muse, the Goddess as she speaks out through the power of the poet's song. The poet is like a hollow lute, the breath of the muse playing her strange music weaving intricate melodies of light and dark over the minds of sleeping humanity. Lorca defined the dark enchantment of poetry as "the Duende"... that mystery of the daemonic self rising from out of the cage of life's anguish to reveal a beauty that surpasses even the most terrible of tragic fates... poetry breaks free of the black light of Wyrd. It is the voice of nature in its most untamed beginnings. Each poet ventures into that realm as a questor after a dark gnosis that will reveal the hidden dreams at the heart of reality... join me as I explore the Lands of Faërie through image and words that compliment and resonate against the backdrop of the Civilization of the Goddess that lays scattered amongs us like the lost ruins of Atlantis. Hear her voice... and follow her into the mystery, the passion that is the voice of the muse...

I have been writing poetry for as long as I can remember. I believe in the power and magic of poetry. Her service is perfect freedom. To love poetry is to be in love with the Muse, absolutely. I have followed the deep byways of poetry into the bardic realms of lore, legend and myth: the primal songs of humanity. Questing after the secret rose of all our dreams has been a lifetime passion. Seeking in the dark labyrinths of the Imaginal Mundus I have wandered in solitude and from time to time brought back fragments out of our deep and abiding heritage; and, sometimes, I've visited in the realms of FaŽrie, the Otherworld of our heart's home. For we are one and all, Children of the Moon, dark riders of eternity in love with the Old Ways of the Earth. As a poet, I measure the music of time in verses of delight and promise: the gift of the blessed Lady and Lord of all Life.

Moon-glow woke me in the night And I felt the stillness The silence The clouds silver dancing On wings of light

New Poems

The Wizard's Dream Now while the night spins the stars about us, hold (O myriad flames that enfold us in her gleam) Westernesse,- hold thy fleeting dreamer now! So now, we sing thy presence within time, like tears falling forward into earth the folding leafs drift into infinity- the orphic cords, broken memories, leap and abound: -One Dream, one tale of light, the might of elder bards all telling, showing forth the hidden life of ancestral worlds; the cause of magick and the noble ones who dare to speak the truth, to hold before them all the secret ways of earth: children of the gift, touched by her love; one shining star lights up above this moon: the star of love, born of her: one falling tear of joy! - Earthwizard, aka, Steven Craig Hickman © January 16, 2004 ***** back to menu *****
