Prescient Remembrance

“Prescient Remembrance” is a story about a vampire, told in the form of a poem. I know nothing about poetry, but I do know a good story! Those who know the inimitable Jordan Hoggard from his Tarot work (Tarot In The Land Of Mystereum, Schiffer Publishing, 2011), know that he pays great attention to detail, that his work flows, and that it has infinite levels. All of these are evident in “Origins”, the first volume of a planned ten volume series.

We begin with a dog-eared, treasured journal … a journal that tells the story of a man. Across the cover of the journal we see his legacy scribed in gold … “Prescient Remembrance”. This is the story of a man whose undying love made him immortal. A love that he found … and then lost for centuries!

From the book:

Dedication

 Dedicated to our lost children

where there forever

they shall reside

under a small lake,

immeasurably deep,

lying high up in the mountains,

where is brewed the thunder,

and in fair weather the dragon sleeps.

 Ours is not a lot to be feared.

The dragon is a necessary beast.”

The journal begins with a reinterpretation of the Big Bang Theory. The universe, it seems, began incomplete illumination, not complete darkness. Who knew! The light transformed and transformed, energies forming with in the memory of light to become soulful secrets.

Duality of opposites? Far outclassed by prescient remembrances!

The reader needs to be aware that this is a story that is quickly paced, flowing rapidly. It is an idea story, beginning with the origin of he universe. It is a pleasure to read, but it is a thinking man’s story. We  learn about how our unborn souls were formed, meditating under a glowing full moon.

We read about love, and loving the not-knowing. We read about the seasons, and how they relate to each other. We read about th community of the solar system. We see how Spirit guides us through our senses.

Volume 1 ends with this thought – “To make artifacts of your belongings, you must first learn to fire time. Here – let me show you.”

My feeling is that this series is going to be a piece of literary art, epic poetry akin to “Beowulf”. I intend to pursue it!

“Prescient Remembrance” can be purchased here.
