Poetry Books

Combining poetic words with illustrations or photography, my poetry collections are available in both print and eBook, and touch on subjects of life and love, the changes of nature and the seasons, chasing dreams and wishes, and often try to share the beauty in small things and moments.


Curious? Scroll down to learn more about Dreamscape, Musings from a Wildflower and Amaranthine—of which the latter two are still set to also re-release through KDP before the end of 2021.

Dreamscape

“Lightweight strangers fly
through my wild, curious mind—
    Imagery breathes life”

You’re invited to escape into another world

Dreamscape is filled with artwork that blends the thin line between fiction and reality.

A poetic journey of chasing goals, wishes and daydreams, late nighttime ponderings, and staying strong in those moments of falling down and getting up again, while holding on to the valid courage to keep believing in yourself.

Musings from a Wildflower

Reaching towards
our infinite skies, we blossom
everywhere, growing strong—
    An ocean of colour, we are
    wildflowers, seizing the day

Musings from a Wildflower is a collection of visual poems from the Micro Poetry series.

Inspired by philosophy, nature, daily thoughts and emotions, these minimalistic poems blend words with imagery, and aim to encourage, make one ponder, or show you the beauty that can be found in the little things.


The new paperback edition of Musings from a Wildflower is set to release before the end of 2021. More info to follow soon (:


Amaranthine

“Life, an infinite dance
of endings and beginnings—
    We bloom eternal”

Amaranthine is a collection of visual poems from the Haiku series.

Counting a hundred poems in total, these three-line verses are influenced by the art found in traditional Japanese poetry styles, and inspired by the continuous changes that happen all around us, in both nature and life.
