ABOUT ME, IRINA

Dear reader, welcome to my site!

Why read poetry?

 

Poetry is perhaps the simplest and most intuitive form of art.

Yet it carries a profound and long-lasting effect on our psyche: poetry heals us, balances us in an ever-shifting world and sharpens our understanding of who we are, building us up.

With its multiple facets - catharsis, fluidity - the essence of poetry is constantly on the move, on a continuum of words.

Poetry is all about experimenting, taking risks and getting caught in unnecessary complications. 

Unnecessary and, like a two-faced Janus effigy, necessary for us to open emotional floodgates to new transitions.

 

Transitions - which on some days we refer to as 'creativity'.
