    ABOUT THE BOOK  
    A debut collection of poetry from platinum ARIA accredited 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.

    is a polite request 
    an invitation into 
    a vulnerable relationship 
    between the writer 
    and the reader 
    it is an ode 
    to word of mouth 
    to paper pages 
    to hard copies 
    handed to strangers 
    shared with lovers 
    kept with family 
    to taking chances on books 
    without knowing 
    the entirety of its contents first 
    to do and practice just that 
    of which we do so little of today 
    with books and relationships alike.

    The classical poetry of Japan focuses on direct experience of fleeting moments, in total contrast with its Occidental counterpart. These seminal poems were passed down orally, before great collections assembled works of art spanning several centuries in written form as early as the 8th century, from the Kojiki to the Kokinshu. Later, a number of female writers rose to prominence (Murasaki Shikibu, Sei Shonagon); then in the 17th century, the haiku form became extremely popular, in large part due to the work of Matsuo Basho, a prolific writer and traveler.Discover a selection of the most important poems of classical Japan, beautifully translated, as an immortal evanescence.
