Genre: Poetry, Philosophy



This "new age" book of poetry reflects the diverse views and philosophies of it's author Lord Ra Krishna EL. It's an intimate, humorous and thought provoking group of poems intended to evoke strong emotion. To quote the german philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche, this style of poetry can be called "Zukunfts poesie" which translates into "Poetry of the future", where truly original ideas are presented thru poetry.


It's subjects include society, pop culture, religious dogma, God and the new age of Aquarius. This book was written and published during the false incarceration of its author in Chicago's notorious Cook County Jail.








My Review

Lucifer & the indigo kids by Lord Ra Krishna El is a collection of separate chapbooks of poetry penned during the author’s incarceration in Chicago’s Cook County Jail. I am not much of a reader of poetry or new age writings, so was a little apprehensive as to what I was going to find with this book.

I was pleasantly surprised!  These writings have a power and an ethereal quality not found in much else these days. The short poems tie together the realities of life in America today with a solid connection to our universe and our transcendence of absurd belief in ancient fables as truth, and a brightly lit path to self-empowerment through these same teachings in their original raw form. All told in a light, airy, and touching way.  Many of these short pieces left me smiling to myself, and kept me thinking about them long after I had finished reading them! I’m glad I decided to read this book, and it will be taking a permanent place amongst my ‘keeper’ collection of books.  Four stars.
