"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare


Anthony Ward writes in order to rid himself and lay his thoughts to rest. He derives most of his inspiration from listening to Classical Music and Jazz since it is often the mood which invokes him. He has recently been published in Streetcake, Shot Glass Journal and Mad Swirl after a hiatus in writing.

The Rite of Spring plays upon my mind.
It is my mind–
It's likeness.

This bridled madness swirls my head,
Thoughts without words dancing with stillness,

While I lie entranced...
Throwing myself to darkness.

The undulations resonating into harmony.
Giving myself to myself.
