Selected Verse - Heroes and Wonders

Click this image to preview the book at Amazon

A collection of poems dealing with heroes and wonders of the grand type we see depicted in our favourite epics as well as inspiring everyday examples that only a few ever notice. Beauty to enjoy, courage to inspire, wisdom and folly to admire and avoid.

Highlights include a heartfelt celebration of a life well lived, the story of a survivor of China’s brutal one child policy, an uplifting appreciation of nature’s cycles, and a grand tale of a beast that haunts the hearts of men.

Awake the hero within you, and stand in awe of wonders that never cease.

My first poetry collection, consisting of 52 poems from the Zwyckyverse blog, tells the story of how I met my wife, reflects on the lessons and changes in our lives since we became parents, on the role models within my family and the treasure we can be for each other.

It then moves on to examine how the divine spark and source of all light and existence has been glimpsed in history and in the modern day, the different perspective this provides us with and the radical life and hope it calls us to.

The collection is now available as a kindle ebook in every amazon territory:
