Overview

Distinguished by its lyricism, depth of emotion, its metaphysical bent and the colour and wide range of reference in its imagery, The Fifth Window, opens up new vistas of language and experience. The landscape and climate of Vancouver and the BC coast imbue this collection with a spiritual and physical immediacy and energy. The area’s trees, mountains, rivers, creeks and rain inform an ecstatic vision in which the psyche and natural world meet and become one.
