Key Themes: Mental Health, Schizophrenia,


In this, volume 2 of Dark cloud White cloud Dusk Sandstone, we encounter another epic length poem. Much inspired by Homer, Milton and Byron, this poem attempts to give the reader an experience of beauty through words. We often experience beauty from the canvas, or through nature, but this work attempts to send the reader into that state of the sublime through a carefully constructed poesis, or poetic contrivance.
Building on themes from volume 1, this volume also seeks to give some support to those who are experiencing difficulty.

Book Extract

What is there
Is not there

And when we have finished
There will be a long pause
And then
To be the gatherer of rose petals

I have not seen the belief we have
In some time
But that is not a worry
We have the chance to be
And be in

And here
Where the fathomable
Meets the sea
There will be a small temperance
That seeks itself in ardour
Be the chance
And you will have a gift
