The Vision of the Child Prophet

November 25, 2016

The VISION of the CHILD PROPHET.

I had a fever
and went to bed early.
I was restless
but finally I fell
into a deep slumber.
I dreamt I could fly
and went to the garden.
Night was there
and I was ready.
Up I flew
leaving the ground.
So many bright stars
shinning everywhere.
So close each one
the size of my pockets.
So I reached out
with arm and arm
and touched one star
and then another,
and there was a jolt!
And with the energy
that they gave me,
I could fly further.
And so I flew
all through the heavens,
and night passed
in an instant.
I woke to the Sun
beginning to peek
through my window
filling the room.
Morning is here
and everywhere else.

This was written at the end of my work on the sci-fi novel Writings in Science. I decided not to include it, and thought it would be best to stand on its own.

WIS, 2nd Review of Sci-Fi Novel

November 10, 2016

Dear Readers,

This is my second review for Writings In Science. I have some favorite lines from the review.

The first thing I can say about this book by Tom Hendricks is wow.

It is hard to know where to start in sharing my thoughts on this book other than just how much I enjoyed it.

Reviewed By Kathryn Bennett.

Writings in Science: A History of the Future by Tom Hendricks is a collection of poems, essays and stories all compiled into a novel, written in two parts. The reader is taken to a world where the earth is no longer viable and is, in fact, dying because of the sun. People are leaving the blue planet in droves and one man with the name of “I” works to gather his favorite science writings to preserve them as a legacy for the future. Follow the history in this book and all of the changes that have happened to the planet before it began its death throes.

The first thing I can say about this book by Tom Hendricks is wow. It may not be the longest science fiction book ever, but it delivers on what it says that it will – a great span of information, a literal treat for your eyes as you read. The breadth of information is wonderful and the format with two parts and a collection of writings is fantastic. You don’t get to meet just one group of characters like in most books, but many groups, all of them rich and fascinating. It is hard to know where to start in sharing my thoughts on this book other than just how much I enjoyed it. Anything theatrical has to go into my favorites category because of my love of the theater. This is not the usual book, but if you like unique reads and science fiction, you will enjoy this book, and who knows, you may learn how to prowl like a house cat while you’re reading.

Vision of the Child

October 1, 2016

This poem almost made my sci-fi novel Writings in Science.
My initial idea was that somewhere in the future there would be some child with the gift of second sight.
He would become world known for his visions and this would be his most well known vision.

The VISION of the CHILD.

I had a fever
and went to bed early.
I was restless
but finally I fell
into a deep slumber.

I dreamt I could fly
and went to the garden.
Night was there
and I was ready.

Up I flew
leaving the ground.
So many bright stars
shinning everywhere.
So close each one
the size of my pockets.

So I reached out
with arm and arm
and touched one star
and then another,
and there was a jolt!

And with the energy
that they gave me,
I could fly further.

And so I flew
all through the heavens,
and night passed
in an instant.

I woke to the Sun
beginning to peek
through my window
filling the room.
Morning is here
and everywhere else.
