People ask me to give a synopsis of the story. Well I say it isn’t fair to write something so short that has had my heart and soul captivated for the past four years. Inspiration plays a tremendous part and I can honestly say, the lyrics and music of Simon Lebon and Duran Duran have done just that.Their style has been the back drop for many a poem and now my bok. So, I shall do my best to describe it for you…
          In the pages of this book you will find that which is pure passion. A new story of old love and deprivation too. A metaphysical, metaphorical journey; of beauty and the ravages of ugliness.
          The pages of this book contain words that stem from emotion, experience, and of purpose; if you will, faith. In many forms but with a voice. It is not just the vocals of the beholder. There is not one meaning,but a potential for many.
           So, on your journey into Arcadia, along with the characters I have so come to love, I am certain you will find a voice, heart and perhaps a recognition of spirit as well.
           Oh yes and just to let you know…everything happens in Arcadia’s time. So, dip a toe in the water there, walk the forest, fall into the whispers of the moon. You may find you are lost forever in a place that is OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN.

There was a great disturbance in the balance. The opposition that occurred caused a fierce conflagration, leaving devastation and desolation all around. It lasted for many years and the world went into its deepest depression. There was no place to hide and no place to call your own. People died and they were reborn of a madness. Into and out of the depths of hell…they rose. It was like no world they would have ever imagined; there was no time to rest or you would be bested, and no one would allow life as it once had been.  

During the time of love and affections there had been seeds planted and they were born into this time of desecration, this time of turmoil. The children were left to their own devices and to their places in a world that had no governing. In this Hadean terrain they must reside and fend, to bring forth their offspring and to teach them to live among those that mean to do harm.

Spirit, air, water, earth and fire – it was back to the ways of simplicity. There was no Christian way of life, no peace. But inner peace must prevail, or there can be no sustaining of life.

It was prior to this that all practices began and there once was an inner peace, a time for learning. But not now; now they must struggle and take charge of their destinies to arise and make anew of an ancient way of life. A way of life to help them cope and help them make this a prosperous world, abundant once again in balance with the tides and where the solstice could once again be.

For now the seasons were all amiss in this poor new world of old, old times and of ancient ruin, as it was all at the hands of their forefathers. It was a world where the waters were unsafe to drink with bare hand from unfounded and forgotten rivers and streams. It was the soil that had been barren as a wasteland and not cultivated for seeds to be planted for sustenance to grow. They were alone, these children of unknown origin, alone in a world gone mad. And it is from here that they begin….


Amanda is currently working on a forthcoming poetry book and the sequal to OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN, entitled, Genesis Fire.
