Kai: Because of Hades is a rhyming short-story about a young man called Noble whom loses his friend in battle. While Noble lives a civilian life, he tries to cope and find meaning in his everyday strife, which leads to an adventure; out of the shabby side of town, and into the wild, with his remaining friends in tow. When Buttercup perishes at the hand of a lion in the forest, Noble seeks to exterminate it, but he is then hunted down by it’s offspring – three evil kittens!
Each “chapter” of this poetry novel is its’ own poem, with themes of romance, adventure/action, abstract, and even a little crude humor. Although I’m only putting this story out now, I actually wrote it way back in 2014, as a poetic derivative of one of my many novels-in-progress. All of my watercolor artwork for this book was digitally placed and enhanced by Avery.
Please enjoy, as it is one of my more interesting pieces!
Avery: I recently worked on this short film with our good friend Sean Seid, an artist whom previously was featured on Voices & Visions. Sean currently has a GoFundMe for the 2nd press of his book “The Love Inseid” A collection of Poetry and Photography.
The film is Sean’s own creative vision, made in collaboration between me and Max Kristopher of Maximize Clarity.

Arianna: We’re excited to present you with a brand new collection of dark and spooky poetry, just in time for Halloween!
This is the second book I have put together doing all of the art digitally. I like the atmosphere I was able to create to accompany the poems that Kai and I wrote. I hope you enjoy this eerie collection of poetry!
Kai: Here is the third, and last installment of our “Rainbow” poetry book series: Another collection of poems by both Arianna and I, plus colorful images of our own creations, and pictures we collaborated on.
“We yearn to reach into the mind and soul to open you up to the colorful world around us. To complete our ”Rainbow series”, we introduce to you, our third collection of detailed musings in the form of hand-drawn art, and contemplative poetry. May color open up your eyes, taking your focus away from the continuous battle of black-and-white, right and wrongs. We are here to be creative beings!”
“Color’s Second Wind” is a sequel to “Thinking in Rainbows.” Poetry and art is by both myself and Arianna. It is a mash-up of poems done with purpose, and inspired by whacky dreams. The Artwork is of course, some of our most colorful! Please Enjoy! -Kai
Sean Seid is a poet, photographer, and musician based in Florida, he is the author of his newly announced poetry book “The Love Inseid”. Sean shares with us a spiritual perspective on the creative process, and gives insight on how creativity and spirituality are more connected than we think.
Here is a new poetry collection from Arianna and I. It contains poems and art from the both of us, including art works we collaborated on. This first “Rainbow” titled poetry collection is the first installment of a colorful series, so if you like the art from this book, there is more to come! I have so far compiled three books for this series, but for now, enjoy “Thinking In Rainbows”.
For Valentine’s Day this year, I present a book of poetry written by Kai and me. The theme being love, it covers not only romantic love, but love in all other forms as well.
I gave it the title “The Unlocking Of The Heart”after the very last poem in the book. That poem was written several years ago, but I feel it’s story and emotion has become more important to me, hence I gave it’s name to the book itself.
I truly hope you enjoy reading these poems, and that they remind and reveal to you the many faces and forms of love. And knowing that in the end, the most important thing we can give this world is the unlocking of our own hearts. For once we can do this, who knows what is possible?
