Wayfaring is a collection of poems about journeys, both physical and metaphysical. Filled with keen observations on the nature of life and what it is to be human, imbued with love, raw emotion and a good measure of anger too, these poems touch on things that were and things that yet might be. Ghosts from the past travel hand in hand with the reality of the present as Tikuli explores the byways of society, family, love and loss, while questioning the role memory plays in our rapport with the many things that bind us to reality. At once elegiac and forward–looking, nuanced and outspoken, the poet’s words call for us to understand that greater things unite us than divide us. This second volume of poems by Tikuli is nothing less than a triumph.
