A Dream Away

Rebeca Cygnus Photography

Exhausted,  I wipe the last tears
of the day from my eyes, slipping into
a dream under a hunter's moon

Awakening slowly to a new reality
I arise the navigator, on a lucid
road of mysterious adventures

Following the music of my heart
under an October sky, I see a
road stretched out before me

A flock of starlings fly overhead
to whom will your inner voice trill
sing the song of your soul's desire

I wonder how far I must travel
to realize my highest peak
of consciousness is only a
dream away

 Love is an unsettled sea
riding the waves of moon

Dreams are an unsettled
reality waiting to awaken
in the autumn mist

Life in an unsettled world
changes day to day, season
to season

Will chaos ever settle down
in our uncertain times

Backbone of My Soul

The Weight of Groans” Photography by Julie de Waroquier

I carry the weight of your cries
the bow of heartbreak and loss
vibrate across my spine
and neck

We are connected as one
to resonate with my song
you must embrace my
body whole

For you I sing in an
unspoken language
bare the backbone of
my soul

In the light vulnerable
caught in a solo moment
there is a silent interlude
of hope

A Little Help From My Friends

Happy Wednesday!  Today, I have decided to do something a bit different.  A blogging friend of mine has been on a month long tour to promote his book series.  I have read this series and I can honestly say,  I was not disappointed in the characters or story line.  This is a high quality Sci-Fi adventure. Money well spent in my opinion. You can find him at Silver Dagger Tours.

CassaSeries Tour

Silver Dagger Tours is hosting a month-long tour for me that includes a giveaway for an Amazon gift card and swag.

Now, I see some heads nodding okay. Where is this all going?  Alex also, wrote an amazing book titled  Dragon of the Stars.  This is my absolute favorite written by Mr. Cavanaugh.  So, in my humble opinion it deserves to be showcased.  Previous to the release of this book, I composed a poem based on snippets he provided during the writing process.  Can you believe that, a poem before even reading the book?  Of course, some of you know I am a fan of all things dragons and stars. How could I not enjoy this book?

Dragon's Song

opening  gateways to the galaxies
beyond the milky way a bridge
between two worlds a new star
adventure awaits over the ridge

commanding his own star-ship
man with a vision to soar the sky
living  in harmony with his bride
lofty dreams float in a pilot's eye

until turmoil surrounds his world
what and whom must he defeat
his heart hears the wild beast sing
pulses of energy,  with each beat

eyes ablaze, flying across the heavens
echoes of the fabled dragon's song
mighty vessel, about to be unleashed
fierce  warrior singing loud and strong

darting across the celestial sphere
on a hunt for the  legendary beast
Hyrath's only hope, can it be found
halting enemy fleets about to be released

Aden, man of honor,  knight of valor
pain and anguish penetrate the sky
swooping on the wings of a dragon
unflinching, he will not let his world die

honoring the hymns of his beloved
duet song of two wandering hearts
determined to wear the golden ring
will he survive when the battle starts

I guess we need to buy the book
and let the adventure unfold 

Dragon of the Stars

By Alex J. Cavanaugh
The ship of legends…
Science Fiction – Space Opera/Adventure/Military

The future is set for Lt. Commander Aden Pendar, son of a Hyrathian Duke. Poised to secure his own command and marriage to the queen’s daughter, he’ll stop at nothing to achieve his goals.

But when the Alliance denies Hyrath’s claim on the planet of Kavil and declares war on their world, Aden finds his plans in disarray. Entrenched in battle and told he won’t make captain, Aden’s world begins to collapse. How will he salvage his career and future during Hyrath’s darkest hour?

One chance remains–the Dragon. Lost many years prior, the legendary ship’s unique weapon is Hyrath’s only hope. Can Aden find the Dragon, save his people, and prove he’s capable of commanding his own ship?

Alex J. Cavanaugh has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and works in web design, graphics, and technical editing. A fan of all things science fiction.  Online he is the Ninja Captain and founder of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group. He’s the author of Amazon Best-Sellers CassaStar, CassaFire, and CassaStorm. 


Alex, thank you for all your support over the years!  I was just compelled to bring Dragon of the Stars to light.

Standing in wonderment
from a distant vantage point
pondering the need to conquer

I need no ladder or rope
to scale the orb of
enlightenment, my
vision is clear in a golden

The beauty
of  life is right
before me in the promises
of reflective light

standing on the edge of
reality I am the dream
child of the future...
