Haiku

Through haiku, I try to give voice to the impressions which spontaneously grow as I explore the roads, bridleways and trails in the area where I live. My work mainly concerns cycling, nature and the elements and, inevitably and always, life itself: cycling, paths and physical exertion become a metaphor for life, and life itself can only evolve in relation and in reaction to these items.

To ride, especially out in the woods, on old paths or at night, is to enter a no-place, where the world is observed from the outside. It does not impose demands, but offers you the chance to catch a glimpse of its true shape – both its unchanging and its ever-changing aspects.

For now, early versions of my poems can be found on my Instagram page. At some point in the near future, I will bundle them into a collection and publish them as a whole.
