Spectrums & Apertures is a poetry collection that explores the perceptions and conflicts of birth, life, love, place, religion, and death. The poems are fragments of life, in the way we experience ourselves in our various roles and relationships, and how we are impacted by the ripples we create and eventually come full circle. The poems also incorporate photographic imagery and colour, marking how we move through time, picking up small snapshots of what is happening to us, personally and globally. These images depict how we create attachments and freeze time, lingering on events that either force us to move forward or prevent us from doing so. There is an abstract continuity in the poems that binds our daily human experiences in the way we view our paths on this planet, leading us through life and into the unknowns of death.
