About the book

Peter Rawnsley writes of movement even as his own world becomes increasingly still. He is acutely aware of the natural world around him – its softness and light as well as its brutality – from Karehana Bay to Castlepoint to Tijuana, and of his own place in it. He nods to the inevitable passing of time, but importantly there is still time, and that’s something he’s grateful for. He feels blessed to be here. 

Stones & Kisses is a tender, reflective and playful collection from one of Aotearoa’s best-kept secrets. 

‘Peter Rawnsley’s poems capture the exhilaration of living. In great imaginative leaps he takes us into worlds both familiar and mysteriously new. He is a poet of real confidence, in touch with the pain and the wonder of what it is to be human.’Michael Fitzsimons
