Overview

Passionate and carefully crafted, this collection of poetry offers an unflinching exploration of life and death and of the spirit’s relationship to the world. Charting the drifts and tides of intimate relationships, these poems emerge out of a profound connection with the stunning New Zealand landscape, which is experienced as nurturing and menacing, tender and indifferent. Mapping the complex ties between family members, especially the changing relationship between a mother and her children, to detailing an encounter with a life-threatening illness to exploring extreme states of physical awareness, the journey through these artful selections is at once richly natured and strange.
