- A debut collection of poetry from platinum ARIA accreditated 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.
- About the author: human being
Note from the author:
Writing poetry had nothing to do with publishing it. Writing poetry is what music was for me at the very beginning: an outpour.
No plan, entirely personal.
Poetry is another thoughtfully independent direction that was made possible by my family at Commonfolk Publishing.
Looking forward to connecting with you all for the first time, and again.
