Speaking With A Broken Mirror is a collection of introspective poems reflecting the images observed in our daily surroundings and examines the aspects of our environment like a jagged piece of a broken mirror. It reiterates the things ignored or forgotten that connect us, and invites us to feel the rhythm of a pervasive spirit. Some of the poems were previously published in a limited edition, Misty- Poems from Email to Diane. This exceptional compilation reveals an expressive theme of connectedness with tones of pensive shadows and humorous light.
