When heat-resistant creatures venture across the barren landscapes to restore the Earth, they must unravel troves of mysterious secrets in Alex Andor Skanavis’ epic poem “Gaia: A Mystical Epic” (published by Trafford Publishing)
Written entirely in rhyme, with alternating verses of sonnets and original meters, the interlocking words reflect a connection with all life, as inspired by Terence McKenna, Eastern philosophy and the modern rise of visionary art.
“The very nature of continued threats of nuclear war was the impetus enough to create an epic poem in favor of peace that places the downfall of our species into a riveting perspective,” says Skanavis, who was also inspired by the work of Isaac Asimov and John Steinbeck.
“Gaia” is a poem of epic proportions and, thanks to Skanavis’ skillful storytelling, covers an immense number of categories, including philosophy, activism, transcendentalism, psychiatry, telepathy, metaphysics, prophecy, sociology and many more. Nods to sonnet royalty, William Shakespeare, can also be found in this enthralling work.
“Gaia” is available at major online and local retailers and is appropriate for all ages.
