Give us an "elevator" speech describing your creative work.

I started writing 20 years ago and have had a lot of success with individual poems and collections. My poetic creation, (sometimes in meditation), is deep, meaningful and with lots of colour, inner expression, compressed language, expressing ideas, imagination, dreams, mind experiments, nature , beauty and sometimes it comes from somewhere else. As if I am a part of this creativity and beauty itself. I aim to interpret in fresh ways the lessons of Blake, Shelley and Keats, with an understanding that the pantheon is a living, breathing, shaking thing. "Explosion into madness, words melt, merge, heart, hand, world lighter, more love, poetry of my soul, greatest wisdom, lies within, spirit yearns to share, love, kiss , golden face, meadow green, inner streams, heavenly alchemy, amongst trees, barest clouds, to see, rich, celestial face, like a light in a storm." Collections can be viewed: http://www.bibliotastic.com/ebooks/fiction-poetry/songs-blood-myself

Tell us what you most look forward to in joining this Meetup?

I look forward to sharing my ideas and poetry. Building up creative like-minded people, creating new friendships and in a deep-felt way seeking to learn how others create. My interest lies in how to further my own creative waves. I get inspiration out of listening to music to the deep waves that my mind creates in words. I want to share my secrets with like-minded people. Some of the music that inspires me comes from: Donovan, Doors, Jimi Hendrix and some of the creative artists from the sixties, with dreamy melodic voices with lines to match something out of a mystical maze. From this and other forces, my work expresses a combination of what I consider to be beautiful words, blending into spontaneous images, possessing a great deal of mysterious beauty. It just arrives from nowhere; I am just sitting back, waiting for it to burst into my consciousness, line by line. I want to be inspired by you all - to touch my inner soul & bring more poetry to the fore.

Are you willing to assist in the organisation of Meetups for this group?

Through the gathering of great minds some resources have to be spent to keep the show going. I will be willing to help in any way. I want to be a part of this new force that Suzanne has created and build this group up, in spirit and more. More words. Poets like me, open up every tree, one glaring chaos, will bring poetry galore, in naked nature, in living grace, with diamonds, pearls in every line. Try , hide, ornaments of my art, leading into my heart, thoughts well expressed, in amongst the gems. Truth is bound, images in shades, in love, sweetness, in blood, in languages I care to express. Inner value - I give this to you on a plate of gold, words are like leaves, never leave them on the ground - spread them where they are most abound; in eloquence, in class, in colours I spread, the dust of my bones, as my soul flies to see another day.

Introduction

I am Dennis, an Australian poet. I have had 4 collections and a lot of individual poems published. I live in Canberra and writing is my passion - as is nature, meditation and meeting new people.

What Dennis T. is saying about this Meetup Group

It is the start of something big, let it grow, and become what we all are, a select few who are thinking outside the square. Be passionate as Suzanne is - we can be bigger then we are, with inspiration and praise.
