Everblue Soul by Gregg Dotoli and Subterranean Blue Poetry, is a Beat poetry progression born in the crucible of life and love from the Baby Boom Generation with all the excitement of "new", new peace, new freedom, "spring joy pop" poetry inside the love of the New Age. Gregg Dotoli lives in New Jersey and works as a cyber security executive. He has studied English and computer programming with a BA from Seton Hall and an MBA from Saint Peter's University. He has been widely published on the Internet and internationally.

This poetry is a magical sophisticated weave of truncated thoughts, in staccato delivery, a free verse form that sometimes unexpectedly rhymes. Often, there are profound new juxtapositions of words, the use of punctuation in new and exciting ways and the pure celebration of word inventions. This Poet also presents original Haiku.

"Bruce's Song (Ode to Asbury)

Upon the wake
night's invisible lore
forgotten less
not more
recall recall
drowsy did I
close my eye

try try try

slumber did befall
a short recall
of horses spin
in golden stall
chimes of win
and loving kin
near wooden walk
and angel talk
song dreams spoke
and I awoke"

The themes and imagery of love, war, peace, Eden, the threatened ecology, the beauty of nature, poetry writing, the state of the world and some Protest Poetry (a truthtelling) are created. The imagery is succinct and powerful, very often the beauty of nature and always the delivery "bangs in the dance." An exciting poetry as peace treatise from a Sage as Oracle.

"June Walk

I walk with dizziness
and heart pumping
we stop
never go
I need forever"

A mysterious and Zen-infused new Beat event in celebration of sunshine, love the day and God's creation. Peace and a new day in a wellspring of hope from the Flower Power, peace and love generation reinvented in the New Age. Everblue Soul by Gregg Dotoli, a Subterranean Blue Poetry Imprint.
