The book’s available from Amazon for under £3 and under $6, and lots of other currencies for the equivalent prices; and Smashwords and other ebook readers for much less.
Reflection 6 mirrored See Below Sea:
Although inspired by nature, the iceberg of this poem is a metaphor for the human psyche.
As it is only an iceberg’s tip visible above the surface, most people only have a little of their personality, experiences and thoughts on show in society at any one time.
Reflection 7 mirrored
I Am What You See
But You Are Not Me
Six Billion + of You
Myself – Only a Few
As travel is supposed to change people, it changes words and sentences too. What is meant by the communicator is often changed through relay: whether it is a spoken conversation amongst friends, or a person making a public statement.
Reflection 8 was a double reflection of Orbital Perceptions:
The doors of perception
should not be an obsession.
They will open in time
without such a steep climb.
There is little smaller and more insignificant in space than our planet.
There are few things on our planet that last less time than a single life.
There is little more significant to us than our lifetime in our place in space.
Reflection 9 mirrored Quality Words are like
Koala(ity) on a Eucalyptus Tree at Sunset.
Is there time to think
in modern society,
where everything is instant,
silence is belligerent
and noise is magnificent.
Politicians still try to do it,
play for time
get answers to mind
see the interview through
hide the reality
reveal nothing on telly.
Reflection 10 mirrored Driving Through The Desert
In the void between life and death
that’s where I like to be.
Flying in space beyond sight
of reality and mortality.
But the flight is finite,
and the return can be rocky.
