To survive never to thrive, requires rejection of identity, hiding one's true name; as the naming of Self is seen as threat. Solution is assert oneself; be consumed or to make separate state in which to reside.

Chrome sun shining, burnished in white yellow plating, seems to be smudged in the April sky, seems to be not real, seems to be a standin for how it might look in May, when a broad smile appears in heaven.

Becoming smooth, the tide recedes exposing a tree still living though submerged for most its trunk, just bare bark living beneath wave and brine; how it does so is mystery, as without leaf it gives us no name.

Fire made us and fire may destroy us. Our extinct cousins never freed fire's full uses. They didn't think to port it and now they are no more. But we have learned to carry it to rain it down upon our own kind.

A confusion among magnolia trees to bring forth buds to begin to flower follows on long Winters; it's to trust a Spring that appears like Summer, or it's better to wait to hope it's really true cold is finally over.

Ghostly computers track the world; they trace you, they trace me, they inform on you, they inform on me and there is left for us no privacy. Our lives monitored by a cold indifferent god has come to pass.

The small deaths from struggles of every day and the dim confusions encountered in each waking life, are settled down in the night, in sleep, in slumber, in dream of better days and of better lives to come.

A frown of clouds creases the brow of sky and warns with its worried look a foreboding wind, as a slap slam of thunder resounds fatigue in the air caused by the long gone past now ghost of a summer's day.

Daffodils precede daisies in their spring season flowering, brighter fair coming before the common dark. Unequal in beauty and in flame of blooming, the weed predominates; the worse have the most children.

To that false Spring that had us by its fair green deception while it lasted, so fooled; say a fond goodbye a sad farewell. Short is our summer season; long our winter. It is not over yet and still it keeps its frost.

Dark clouds coming in close, a spike of lightning spiralling down as the drum of thunder slaps in time to rain summer thunderstorm; blue-back gray whale rolls in the sky, birds shelter and scatter. So ought I.

This embrace of seasons, Spring and Summer, as the snow crocus and cherry tree blossom together; janitors, collects, the pinkness of the new into unity of experience of hope when Winter is forgotten.

Introduction
Poetry Books by William O'Connor are available on Amazon and on Barnes & Nobel.

It is set in the far future, and tells of the many inevitable tribulations and tests to be undergone by the coming, new, and the eventual succeeding, human species. The premise of the SF series is that once the total human population exceeds eight billion, a bifurcation of species must occur; and a new human species shall eventually evolve. New philosophies and new theologies will necessarily occur with such human evolution. I am also engaged in the process of publishing "The Cliffs and Their Caves," a collection of cave bear children's stories from Ballydavid Head, Dingle, Kerry, Ireland. I am sole owner of Rothcroi Publications, my only publisher. I use Amazon as my sole distribution channel. I compose poems directly on my Blog.  I do that so I know how a poem looks electronically. These "Blog Poems" constitute my unedited first drafts.  When I have enough Blog poems, I edit them in MS Word and after the edit is finished, save as a DOC file; then go on to publish a paperback and an e-version of the book, both with AMAZON; Create Space for the paperbacks and KDP Select for the digital books. Aside from poetic art, I'm working on my Ren-Taijiquan Boxing and Fencing skills for the physical aspect (Peekskill has a Ren-Taijiquan Boxing and Fencing Club), and I am avidly practicing the Dingle-Druid Seven Stars Society religious way (those bird postures) for the mental psychic aspect. Because of its high royalty rates, I'm using Kindle Direct Publishing's KDP Select as my sole agency for digital distribution. My works are available on Google Android devices bearing the Amazon KINDLE APP; My poetry is directly created upon my BlogSpot Blog. My prose is directly created as a long Note on EverNote Premium. I use the Internet as the creative medium for both my poetry and prose. Regard teaching, I only teach Seven Stars System; nothing else. The Seven Stars Society is a: "Mensa for Psychics." I am both a Mensa Member and a Druid of the Dingle Order (Druid of the Dingle sect wear the sky-blue cockade of The She {ANU} in order to distinguish their Druid Order affiliation). With regard to recognition signals, the right palm is placed on the heart, with the palm facing inward, with three fingers extended: the small, the ring and the middle, representing Crom, Dagda, ANU respectively, while ball of thumb is folded over nail of index finger; the circle made by the thumb and the forefinger affirms an eternal renewal.This circle is the origin of the common "OK!" signal. Since the genre most read today is science-fiction fantasy, and I do wish and I do want to be read widely, As much as I love writing poetry, and I would like to do nothing but write poetry, as I can write poetry as well as anyone can, science-fiction fantasy is what people wish to read. So I shall be publishing in that genre (along with my poetry) for the remainder of my life. If anyone needs to contact for any reason my gmail address is oconnor.rothcroi.william@gmail.com
