Poetry Festival Singapore 2018 hosted about 80 poets in 25 events in one weekend, with over 1000 participants. Aaron had the pleasure to read his spiritual poetry at the special event "In Spirit and in Truth" together with Keki Daruwalla, Nordita Taib, Edwin Thumboo, Lin Rongchan, Grace Chia Krakovic, Chitra Ramesh and Wai Kit Ow Yeong.
One of Aaron's poems "I Sing the Galactic" (from Coastlands, Ethos Books 2014), had the theme of wayfinding as an analogy of the faith pilgrimage. For thousands of years, Polynesians traversed thousands of miles of the open Pacific Ocean with wayfinding techniques and knowledge passed by oral tradition from master to apprentice, often in the form of song. Sometimes, reed constructions of night-sky features were used as navigational charts. Aaron accompanied his poem presentation with photographs of such a chart, as well as of the canoe Hokule'a, built forty years ago by a group of Native Hawaiians and anthropologists to revive the ancient art of wayfinding.
