By Shé Hawke

Aquamorphia: Falling for Water is a mythological, mental and elemental poetic historical past of water in 3 deeply entrancing elements.
Each element of this interesting and tumultuous water narrative takes the reader for a trip on diverse streams of intoxicating, bold and from time to time playful water worlds.
From historical Greek production myths to the Australian seashore, Aquamorphia strikes symphonically, praising the maternal and generative traits of fluidity because the tremendous Bang, or splitting of the Cosmic Egg. The verse is afloat with metaphors that flesh out the trivia of the aquatic landscapes that maintain life.

These phrases are a lyrical bathing, a renewal. Drawing judiciously on Western mythology, feminist philosophy, indigenous cosmology, medical wisdom, and the murmurings of waters themselves, Aquamorphia bargains a renewed environmental imaginary, within which we will do not forget that we too are of the ocean, and may learn how to breathe underwater.
