In this, Ross Lane’s fifth collection of poetry, the poet explores the landscapes and impact of thoughts. He likens the behaviour of thoughts as “Driftwood,” objects that are truly free and moving, that never feel the impact of time, and come to us when both needed and unwanted.
In this book Ross looks closely at the value of thoughts, the productive and destructive, the valued and the haunting, and releases their timbre through a moving, wide-ranging collection of lyric poetry that features works of place, family, love, memory and aspiration. The collection explores the raw nature of creativity, identity and relationships as the poet takes us away to the dreamscapes of ourselves and the malleable nature of our contemplation.
In this new book, the poet continues to ask the hard questions of the self, and explores the answers with honest, emotional and thoughtful outcomes.
