Poet – Midnight Oil


Look out! Late night scufflings,
the urge to pick up a pen.

Reflections endure into a scribbled word,
a scratching.

The impulse of inspiration
flares and burns.

Combustion sparks the circuit
that a muse fulfills.

Follow this intrigue,
the enthusiasm awakens the god within.

Automatic, rhythmical semantic,
a grammatical ghost then guides the hand.

The Poetry of Archetypes are written by Sulaiman Mackay

Sulaiman Mackay is a lifelong lover of writing poetry and has been particularly enamored with it since arriving at middle-age. He has realized it is a powerfully evocative and revealing means of self discovery and conscious development. He started writing poems about archetypes as a way of expressing his inner work, discovering the light and shadow aspects of his psyche, and to explore the energetics of the archetypal experience. He has recently completed an Honours Degree in Creative Communications at the University of Canberra and is currently looking for a way to turn his love for the written word into paid work.
