I have been writing free verse from a very young age. My first poem was published in a local newspaper when I was eight and I was so happy!

I have had the good luck for some of my friends to read my poetry and bring it to life.

Mieke Kenis in Belgium reads Hair, Ascending, Ithaca and A Traveller’s Journal.

James Taylor in Belgium reads Transfusion.

Brad Patterson in France reads Gypsy.

Ece Sevgi in Turkey reads Istanbul.

– My poem inspired by a word and a song: Hasret.
