A debut collection of poetry from platinum ARIA accredited artist Ziggy Alberts, 'brainwaves', explores life's experiences and emotions, inwards and out. Deeply personal, frank, insightful yet relatable, Alberts uncovers his introspective thoughts and lessons learned in conscious and intentional living. Differentiating from his lyrical work, readers can discover some of Alberts' most personal realisations from life at home and on the road.

Divided into 4 chapters, each poem entices the next train of thought. Alberts masterfully draws observations of the natural environment to paint his experience of introspective moments. He contemplates modern-day dilemmas, timeless topics of purpose, trust, stillness, and love.


is a polite request

an invitation into

a vulnerable relationship

between the writer

and the reader

it is an ode

to word of mouth

to paper pages

to hard copies

handed to strangers

shared with lovers

kept with family

to taking chances on books

without knowing

the entirety of its contents first

to do and practice just that

of which we do so little of today

with books and relationships alike.
