Art is the only way that we have to remain alive, as we are dying.

Of Light & Flesh

Loving you, is the flight of the birds who were asleep in my chest.

Of Light & Flesh is my first poetry collection, containing more than hundred pages of poems written between my 8 and 30 years.

I would like to tell you about the joy that floods me. The circle of your eyes is the center of the world.

On the Nature of Daylight

My 2nd Poetry Collection,

Mainly written as I was in India between 2016 and 2018.

Friends

My shadow and your light are old friends.

I would like to hold your hands

-because of an injury,
because of an eternity.

My Love

My love
Tell me about tomorrow
In the tenderness of your madness
Your so familiar madness
Because my lonely pain
Is for the touch of your hand
My love
Night has fallen
Come talk to me slowly
As we do to little children
And come fall asleep gently
Fall asleep against my spine
Our bodies knotted like the vine
Tomorrow is another sigh
Maybe another truth
My love
Night has fallen. »

Daughter of the Wind

My 3rd Poetry Collection, currently under writing.

I was young

I said to myself: I have life in front of me. As I got older, I said to myself: I have life behind me. Sick, I said to myself: I do not care; as long as I have life with me. Since then, life is always with me. Neither in front, nor behind, nor before, nor after. I stopped offering it on the altar of Time. I brought life back to life.

Live and walk

as if you were more vast than yourself. Hands and breath stretched to the Sun.

I believe

that my wave is for your shore. And that my land is for your foot. My wound, for your kiss.

My spring

is in its bud, my winter sleeps in its snowflake, my earth hopes in its thrill- Am I a leaf that trembles in the wind? A soul that walks sighing? Where could we go to be a little less sad, to see life going by under our attentive hearts? And watch the world from window to window, and leave it maybe - breathe gently.
