The Ocean of Light overcomes the ocean of darkness.
SeaQuaker is a writing website of Daniel Eugene Wilcox a poet and fiction writer. Poetry is creative play in the imagination--a way of seeing, a way of feeling, a way of being; re-envisioning our perception, to experience images and moods and truths via the deep structure of far-reaching words.
Travel within toward the truth and find meaning in this cacophony called Life.
Three collections of Daniel's published poetry are in print--Dark Energy, Psalms, Yawps, and Howls, and selah river. Browse through his poems, short stories, and philosophical musings to see the world, life, and the cosmos from a different perspective.
Daniel earned his degree in Creative Writing from Cal State University, Long Beach. He is a former activist, literature teacher, and roving wanderer, from Montana to the Middle East, casting lines out upon the turbulent waters and far shores of this troubled world.

Doesn't religion sometimes want to make you puke?
This month, another horrific tornado leveled Moore, Oklahoma, killing and injuring many people, and immediately a Calvinist Christian named Joel Taylor claimed it was the "finger of God!"
Some Christian leaders last year claimed that 90 tornadoes which slaughtered humans were commanded by God, that the winds were from Jesus!!!

Daniel resides on the central coast of California with his wife and a hyper-cat named Fizzy. Besides writing, he reads a lot, shoots photography, and finds time to swim. He's an old backpacker who in the past hiked up the two tallest peaks in Arizona and California, (to the top of Mount Whitney in the Sierra Nevadas), and down into the bottom of the Grand Canyon on many of its South Rim trails; but now he hikes into his computer room each day in the fall of his years:-). Well, it's not quite that bad; Daniel has hiked with his wife on Kauai, up in Oregon, and in Olympia National Park in Washington State. And now as he ages but doesn't petrify, he takes walks with his wife on the Central Coast.

I saw, also, that there was an ocean of darkness and death; but an infinite ocean of light and love, which flowed over the ocean of darkness. In that also, I saw the infinite love of God, and I had great openings... George Fox
