Poetic Prance

By Jay Higgins

The poetic prance of the dancing night 
Now nestled in that nautic sky
Where stars explode in silent mode
In the undertone of sea spray foam
Of dreams to dream and what’s to be
Of who we are and how we see
This poetic prance of all that’s seen
Is simply all that’s lived and been  
And in between the dirt and sun
I’ve swum in the love of the silent one

My grandmother gently imparted a fierce, lifelong love of nature, art, and poetry within me. This, I now believe, has merged with a tendency to attempt to understand life in all the mesmerising ways it presents itself.

You could always find me with a pen in my hand. Drawing whilst a young child and teenager and then moving into poetry and journaling in my early twenties.  Although I am not a published author or poet, I take my writing seriously. My work is the expression of myself trying to understand myself and this life we all share.  And, if anything was to be taken more seriously, I don’t profess to know what that would be. I write about life, love, and the people who get caught up in the pain and rapture of it all.

Outside of my day job, I love to read, camp, and hike in nature with my beautiful wife. We also spend our free time travelling as often as we can. Cambodia and her people are like a second home to us.
