The Sea In-Between

Dianne Cikusa

In this multi-faceted work, urban landscapes are combined with natural world depictions, encrypted in diverse emotional contexts and the machinations of the human mind. Here is a poet who is not afraid to step into the liminal space, moving through spatial time and consciousness in order to redefine an existing reality – or to perhaps claim a new assurance via revelation, inspiration and spiritual collaboration. 

Diving boldly into the metaphysical deep end, these poems sink into the subconscious realm, then periodically re-surface into more worldly terrain. The inner consciousness is potent and thrives on symbolism, so it is through versatile and pliable language that the poet is forever hinting at something beyond the veil – celestial elements that lean towards the divine and in closer proximity to one’s connectedness with the ethereal. 

The human psyche is placed under analytic microscope as the author creatively draws observations from both the physical world of matter and from the subtler workings of the meditative mind. The poet depicts micro-pictures of the world where small-scale or random events remain part of a greater global vision and macrocosmic awareness. The poems themselves address multiple themes and play with fragments of contemporary issues. It is within this grand labyrinth of collective memory and personal recollection that we will each draw from and replicate the varying elements of our universal human experience.
