May 15, 2006"MARS & BEYOND / POEMS" "And maybe Mars might also be the human heart with all its crisscross scars of possible early water" pg. 29 The planet Mars is the background, the mysterious subject, the amazing journey, and perhaps the ultimate metaphor for the human heart and spirit, in Daniel Abdal-Hayy Moore's book, Mars & Beyond. This book of poetry is as much about taking an excursion within, as much as it is about going to a far, distant world. Daniel Abdal-Hayy Moore proves to be an entertaining and gracious companion to both. As the title indicates, this is no ordinary book of poetry. This is not the average book of spirituality or clichéd suggestions for soul growth either. This is an exceptional book of unique experiences written with matchless proficiency and flair. Complete with what you might expect to find in a book concerning Mars: the aliens, spaceships, and dunes; it is the profound and pleasurable way these poems are written that make... More > this book so compelling. The unimagined and the unexpected rise up to grasp the attention and keep the mind aware that there is something more unfolding within these pages. As Moore blends humor with wisdom, the real with the surreal, one begins to see that he has his own exclusive style and corner on creativity. Now the rosy hue of the land was seen for what it was fields upon fields of red and rose-hued roses pg. 37 Perhaps it is almost necessary to take Moore's flight to Mars in order to gain some better understanding of ourselves and our lives here on Earth. On the dreamlike world of Mars, we see how our own world is often dreamlike. On the often odd and bizarre backdrop of Mars, we begin to see our own lives in a familiar, yet greater context. In the end, this is a spiritual journey rather than being a physical one. Almost as with a trick of light and mirrors, you begin to understand that the whole time Moore has been pointing to Mars, he has been pointing to you. He shows us the phenomenal growth, the limitless possibilities, and the metaphysical occurrences that are achievable within each of us. "Mars is where the heart should be" was heard and "No one here knows us as we should be known" which struck us all as perfectly true pg. 55 ~Brian Douthit author of Perfectly Said: when words become art< Less
