A Green Desert Father Vol.1 - Holy Grail I Will Assume

“How beautiful on the waves of the wild n’ free Atlantic are the visions of those bringing arcane tidings; announcing serenity, gratitude, n’ joy to those in the near of the about, n’ in the far of the afar.” {A Green Desert Father}

In March 2013, Richard Mc Sweeney, a self-originating lyrical philosopher of Éire brought out a 794-paged hardback titled A Green Desert Father having as its subtitle Philosophical converse of an Árd Rí (High King) of Ireland.

This contemporary collectable is a chronologically compiled anthology dating from January 2011 to February 2013 of original narratives, poems, fictional dialogues, and scenic photographs. It boldly addresses several universal themes such as love, freedom, morality, human trafficking, children and spousal abuse, religion, politics, fanaticism, prophecy, cosmology, art, fashion, music, and the esoteric.

There are conversations in it with for instance Anne Boleyn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Matthias Stormberger, Michel de Nostredame, Edgar Cayce, James Joyce, Joseph Goebbels, Greta Garbo, The Congregatio pro Doctrina Fidei, Dalai Lama, The Holy Qur’an, Angela Merkel, Al-Waleed al-Saud, Richard Dawkins, Anne Sinclair, Georg Gänswein, and Patrick Stewart just to name a few.

Aside from being a cosmopolitan work it is a one of a kind personal social commentary on early 21st century Ireland as it contains over seventy pages devoted exclusively to the author’s historic and courageous bid to become the 9th President of Ireland.

The entire work is being made available exclusively here on Shopify in 13 short volumes. The scenic photographs of the print work are not included.

This 1st volume contains the following poems. Each one was inspired and composed simultaneously in one sitting.

Baalbeck, Becharre, n’ Galilee
Man a’ ma of Al Bahrayn
Ruby bedded in Emeralds
Mist in the light atop the lampshade

“Bad rain; bad rain choppering down
on the precious pearls of the isles of Al Bahrayn.
In saying, insane, insanity.
Kaaba’s wall, Western’s wall, n’ Vatican’s wall
are weeping, weeping, weeping over this, n’ more besides.
But why; why, why aren’t Christians, Jews, n’ Muslims,
weeping in kind?
Too caught up they are in the actions of praying.
Bowing, swaying, kneeling,
n’ wording away into their own ears;
quite oblivious of the weeping walls there before them.
This is not a Shia Sunni; a Sunni Shia conflict.
This is humanity asserting its birthright.
An Islamic awakening, you think?
Perhaps, a Jewish awakening?
Even, a Christian awakening maybe?
Dream on, dream on, n’ dream on.
Look around you; look around you, look around you!
Don’t confine to such levels the aspirations of humanity.
Man a’ ma - father n’ mother crying for their pearls:
wailing for their children all day long
n’ long long long into the dark lonely night . . .” Man a’ ma of Al Bahrayn
