By the Wing of a Dove

A Collection of Poetry


By the Wing of a Dove is poetry written and illustrated by Kristian Brockmann, with a brief introduction explaining the background to the poems within. On a beautiful spring day in mid-October, he released two heavenly doves on the Balmain peninsula overlooking Sydney Harbour. This was mainly in recognition of Sri Lankan colleagues he had met through work as an Engineer. Colleagues both Sinhalese and Tamil were recent migrants to Australia, as are many Australians, and the doves symbolise the end of the civil confl ict in Sri Lanka in 2009. The poetry is much more than just a symbol of peace though. Dedicated to family and friends, part one was written in hospital recovering from a diffi cult illness. He recovered in 2008 in the Hunter Valley with family support. The second part of the poetry is compiled from various other times in his life. Each of the poems is illustrated with a photograph from places around Australia and from a holiday in Europe in 2004. Following his recovery, he worked in Sydney for several years before returning to the Hunter Valley where he currently resides, writing poetry in his spare time.
