"There are various influences thathave inspired me," noted Crowley. "The first moment that i heard the mystic lyrics of Moonlight Drive (let's swim to the moon, let's climb through the tide- penetrate the evening that the city sleeps to hide) by the Doors/ Jim Morrison - I was transcended right there," he recalls. Some other examples of inspirational works noted by Crowley would be Lord Byron's "She Walks in Beauty," Arthur Rimbaud "A Season in Hell," W.B. Yeats "The Rose Tree" and Michael Walsh's "Magic." I am also moved to write by traveling to cities both here in America and abroad, through the different cultures and flowing spirits - The depth in people's eyes and the faces they wear. My intention is to express myself through the written translation of my own experiences." Voicing thru the soul a connection between - you and me.
I often find poetry inaccessible,
some mysterious, twisted path that I can rarely follow.
The works of Dan Crowley let the light in, like the lyrics of a great song.
Crowley writes memorable, speaking a language I can understand.
He bares a sense of Passion for things that have legs,
not some intangible concepts that become impossible to decipher.
Crowley writes, Crowley rocks!?
