The Girl in the Mirror

Alicja Maria Kuberska

In these poems, Alicja harnesses her striking abilities in ways that prepare the reader's mind for deeper reflection. She uses highly refined qualities of perception and insight, enabling us to conceptualise hitherto unconscious aspects of our experience, or to re-enter and explore areas that we have already formed. She applies her perception and insight to many different phases of life, in physical, emotional and spiritual realms.

Her own particular use of words to convey thoughts, ideas and concepts demonstrates skills and gifts that are remarkable. Each poem manifests almost as a meditation - on an aspect of life, or on life itself. Although each can be absorbed entirely separately, every one has an equal power and impact when connected to the others. Alone, each conveys its own message, and together they speak as companions mingling to create a single voice.
