The poetry & poetic prose of Brandon Gene Petit

Ab Antiquo, Ab Aeterno

Ab Antiquo, Ab Aeterno 


Ab Antiquo
, meaning “from the ancient”, Ab Aeterno meaning “from the eternal”… together they form a powerful Latin phrase that signifies beginnings and ends, past and future, old and new. Through both structured verse and narrative prose, Petit speaks with the voice of past lives and forgotten selves, approaching the world of contemporary poetry from a view between dream and memory. Calling upon a variety of themes ranging from dark fantasy to domestic nostalgia, Ab Antiquo, Ab Aeterno plays the part of a seasoned bard and weaves images of love, fear, sadness and contemplation. Offering unique perspectives and a bit of rogue wisdom, this poetry collection dares to find new ways to incite, instill and inspire… combining the worlds of light and dark, joy and angst, old and new.

Praise for Ab Antiquo, Ab Aeterno:

“Albeit somewhat on the dark side, this book made me feel the same way that listening to ‘Blues’ music does — at peace and just better.”

–          Claudia Jackson, Book Reviewer


“This book was more grown up in a way, it showed a maturing of his subject matter and a lot of this book is actually narrative verse (longer and more story like) and I really enjoyed it.”

–          Joseph, Amazon Reviewer


“Brandon Gene Petit will paint your imagination with thick, descriptive phrases that drip imagery from every syllable. His skill for packing emotional constructs into small verbal packages is a joy for the mind to take in and can lead you on a journey of the soul.”

–          C.E. Kilgore, author


“With a certain poignancy and reverence for the interconnection of everything,  Ab Antiquo, Ab Aeterno is a solid and choice pick for poetry collections.”

–          Midwest Book Review

    I LOVE, LOVE this site! From the background to your chamber ramblings =) The book cover looks great too! The birds make it! I cannot wait to get a copy. Keep at it! You are so gifted and I am in awe (and a bit envious) of you for being able to express your subconscious so vividly. “rogue wisdom” one of my fav lines!!!

    Take care and keep in touch
