Wine! You attempt to intoxicate realities in vain.
However they are sober inside their trains.
Wine! Do recognize me in my pomegranate dress!
The pomegranate seeds are chasing my rains.
I am a picture on a white page. 
Only a true love's force can change my address.
Wine! An intoxicated brain can be sober again.
An intoxicated heart is a wandering sail.
Realities! Do you recognize me in my pomegranate dress?
Oh, no, this dress is not newly made.
It may be exactly of the world's age.
Realities! Don't attempt to taste my pomegranate dress!
It gives me its wine to intoxicate.

One of my prose poems.

We may meet, Goddess Anahit! You gave me your name and your ancient myth. There's a bench where I can sit. There's a branch where a bird can sing. I wonder if you gave me your perfume made from mint. Do the stars stretch their knees not to slip? You didn't smoke but I do, Goddess Anahit! However the ashes are the same in time's messages. Who knows whose beauty shone in the ancient fortresses? You are still a statue in time's voyages. Who am I in my old and new bandages? We have the same name in time's images. Do the stars meet their myth Goddesses?

Still the Dawn: Poems and Ballads by Philip Dodd, published by Publish Nation, October, 2015.
Still the Dawn. A book of poems and ballads. Poems written to preserve memories, explore moods, emotions, art, myths, real events and dreams, together with some attempts at light verse, even nonsense. Ballads that tell tales, reflect on the seasons, time and its passing. The poet enters the mead hall, un-lids his word hoard, recites. He shares his gift. Those who attend to his works, he hopes to entertain.
  Reviews of Still the Dawn: Poems and Ballads can be read on Goodreads: and and Amazon. The paperback and Kindle version of my book can be bought on and The paperback version can be bought on Lulu:  Information about me and my books can be found on my website:

A print version of my poetry chapbook will be available soon. And with a brand, new cover too. So am looking for as many as interested blog hosts to help in taking part in my chapbook's re-launch.

We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. -Dead Poets Society

I humbly welcome you into this peculiar deepening journey where words are more than what they seem.

Magic? Indeed.

Follow the Timeless Mystical adventure of six Characters as they Alchemically face the Darkest perils of the Human psyche and Search for the Truth . . .

“It is brilliant! . . . The Author had me on the first few pages and I found the entire book to be a truly inimitable literary experience. It is a study in human nature, with a bit of philosophy, spirituality, some theology, all in a wonderful mix of fiction. Their journey of discovery is not unlike the search for enlightenment. The book contains many undercurrents of the search for truth, mindfulness and being fully conscious of the present moment. I must repeat, a truly rare and distinctive presentation of a much written about topic. Highly Recommended.”

                                       - Shirley A. Roe, Allbooks Review International

"This story means more to me that I could ever express, and in their words this story has more meanings than the Reader could ever find alone. So take it as you please, travel light at night, for it is an adventure that goes beyond what we know, and, hopefully, it might reflect back to you exactly what you are looking for.Thank you."

Great site. I've enjoyed the works here. In the past I've avoided most poetry, but now enjoy reading certain verses to expand my writing. Here is one that I read to explore with. Titled "One Day."

This thing named me,

And there is work to do here

Is why I want to believe

And just that. I must challenge the way, however, beware

Any more,

         and to watch out

For being here, for I cannot stop,

         as I could

As my time in a weak soul

Can gasp the void of perpetually.
