Overview

This latest collection of poems, our third, can be considered a grace note attached to the full melody to the first two.
The title, "Scattering Dreams and Tales," was written to reflect the other two publications. According to my co-editor, Fabrizio Frosini, "Dreams & Tales" recalls 'Nine Tales of Creation'. "Scattering" evokes 'At the Crossing of Seven Winds".
In this Anthology, you will find poems by 13 poets.
According to the Random House Dictionary, a POET is a person who has the gift of poetic thought, imagination and creation.
Let us see how we can amplify this definition with statements made by poets and prose writers.
One of the earliest definitions still current is by the ancient Roman poet, HORACE, one of the masters of Lyric Poetry in Western literature.
He wrote Poets were the first teachers of mankind. The poet-teacher would inculcate the highest human values along with whatever information would be deemed necessary.
Who are the hyphenated teachers in today's world? Perhaps technocrat-teachers, dogmatist-teachers, militarist-teachers, businessman-teachers. Would there be room for Horace's confidence in Lyric Poetry?
The early 20th century poet James Flecker made a very precise distinction in what we can expect poets to accomplish through language, mere words raised to heightened, even electric power: "The poet's business is not to save the soul of man but to make it worth saving."
Perhaps several poems in our anthology will perform this redemptive role, if the poets have fulfilled their mission and readers read with lively attention.

Daniel J. Brick (Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA) I was born in the Twin Cities in 1947 and lived my whole life here. This is where I am rooted, near the Mississippi River, in a landscape of four seasons with many trees and parks and lakes. These are the natural things I treasure. Poetry and classical music are my passions. Over the years most of my friends have moved to warmer climates, so in old age I find myself to be something of a loner. But I have a talent for solitude.

I live in the USA, in Nebraska, with my wife and two of my four children. My wife and I are not native to this blandly attractive, relentlessly sunny area. We grew up in the Pacific Northwest, which features spectacular scenery, but also quite gloomy weather. I have brought that gloom with me, and it often shows up in my poems. Though I graduated from college, my degrees are in economics, not English or literature. I currently work part-time hauling freight in the back of a department store. My background, my distance from the “lit-crit” department/workshop hothouse, and my real-world job probably help to give my poems their unusual matter-of-factness. So, too, does my intense admiration for Elizabethan English poetry. I honestly believe that English language poetry, for the most part, steadily has declined since that era.

I'm a university lecturer and scientist by day and a dreamy moonlighting poet who burns the midnight oil on his poetry blog. I was educated at University of Melbourne [Ph.D. and B.Sc.(Hons) in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology] and currently serve as a Senior Lecturer in the Molecular Plant Sciences. I was born and have lived most of my life in Sri Lanka, but I'm infused with traces of influence from Australia and the Philippines where I have resided for significant time periods. I consider myself an old-fashioned romantic and a drifter of fate who meanders like a river unknowing of it's course. I am also a prime example of a late bloomer who loves the little things in life - quirky trivia, haiku poems and fireflies.

New Zealand is my native country. Although I was born in Christchurch, in the South Island, now I reside in the heart of Northland (in Māori: Te Tai Tokerau; it is the northernmost region in North Island). I live in a serene valley with her mountain, her trees, her streams and green fields, that capture, heal, calm and enchant me. I am a quiet reflective person. I enjoy motorcycle riding, fishing, painting and gardening. I am married to a good man who loves me. Poetry is carved deep in my soul and keeps me breathing on a healing journey. My career, nursing, has greatly influenced my pen, sharing her ink with my past. I write dark poetry. Oftentimes my muse writes itself such as "Spirit Drifts", for I do not believe in capital punishment. My poetry slips in the shoes and reflects from the eyes of other people’s lives, their experiences and beliefs.

I am a Paulinian. I earned a degree of Bachelor of Science in Business Administration Major in Computer Science at St. Paul’s University of Dumaguete, Dumaguete City, Philippines. I'm a Catechist and a Christian Formator of Our Lady Mediatrix of All Grace Cathedral of the Diocese of Kidapawan –in the City of Tropical Fruits and Highland Springs (Mindanao Island –Promise Land). I fell in love with drawing before I started grade school and love reading stories from various writers. I am an admirer of William Wordsworth, William Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe, Guy de Maupassant and few rising poets. I started composing poems since I was in my early teens. I am not an effective painter but I love to draw or paint, for the cravings of my fingers. I can’t call myself a poet but I have passion for poetry and write when my feelings ask me to.

I live in Paphos, on the Island of Cyprus. The birthplace of Aphrodite – a peaceful town rich in culture and mythology, beautiful seashores, and abundant all-year-round sunshine; an inspiration for any sensitive soul. I discovered my passion for Poetry at the age of ten, when a volume of poetry by Rainer Maria Rilke was offered to me at school – a book I dearly treasured ever since.

I was born on February 17, 1976 in Jakarta where I spent most of my life with my husband and our two daughters. Despite the demanding work hours in Garments Company I preserved a special thought for words of poetry. I love to captures the feeling or scenes of imaginary tales in my poems. Poetry is a great sanctuary, where to find harmony and a rest from the daily hectic life.
