Finding new inspiration, Police Officer J.B. Conway has revisited his passion for poetry and cultivated his fervor for Disney with Mouse of Zen.
Having always been creative, Conway turned to writing as an outlet and published a passionate book of poetry after the 9/11 tragedy – Crime Scene Lyrics – which explored themes of loss, despair, love, hope and joy.
Conway’s enthusiasm and love for Disney was rekindled after he witnessed Cinderella’s Castle through his young children’s eyes back in 2006, creating a turning point in his life. Mouse of Zen was a natural progression of a love of poetry, the simplicities and complexities of the natural Japanese art form known as haiku, and a rapidly growing fascination with the entire Disney universe.
This collection of Disney inspired, mouse-sized poetry envelops all feelings, sights, sounds, smells, beauty, love, and passion found deep in the nooks and crannies of Disney parks, movies, and attractions. These invigorating works of art will appeal to and offer a fresh perspective to the magic found in us all.
