Swinging Between Water and Stone is a collection of poems comprising four sections. Each section roughly represents the four stages of the never-ending reincarnation cycle: birth, life, death and rebirth. These themes recur in each section, propelling these poems the way smaller wheels turn within larger wheels. Settings, both urban and rural, imaginary and real, domestic and distant, terrestrial and astral create a kind of existential road trip where the reader as traveller comes across signposts that lead to both the familiar and the inexplicable.
Green sea glass beads the tidal/ hairline, swept in by invisible oceanic wheels.
