PICTOPOEMS of BERLIN
Pictopoems of Berlin is my third book of poetry and it appeared in August 2018.
You can find it at www.amazon.com.
Co-authored with Tatiana Arsénie, the book blends original art and poetry in a walk through of Berlin and its reflection on our imagination.
Made for the art, literature and travel aficionado, the book fuses the boundaries of drawings and poetry in an unassuming and introspective manner.
Tatiana Arsénie’s sketches of Berlin impart a secretive and fiery air to buildings and urbanscapes; the drawings included in the book reflect the artist’s own itineraries in the city.
My poetry adds an off-the-cuff commentary to capture the fleeting moment.
From the pages of the book a dreamy rendition of Berlin emerges - with its boroughs, cafés, churches and architectural landmarks.
Decades after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Pictopoems of Berlin brings us a view of Berlin – “a terrace verging on silence” - in praise of freedom.

The CONTINUOUS POEM
The Continuous Poem (Poemul Continuu), in Romanian was published by Editura Dacia.
Poetry, as viewed through the lenses of The Continuous Poem is a never ending frieze, fragmented and regenerating itself.
