Biography of Anita Atina
My poetry seeks clarity, hope and humour.
On some days, a poem is ‘given’ and what a wonderful feeling it is to receive.
That joy grows as I share this precious gift with fellow poets who know what it takes to write poetry that makes us, the poet, happy.
I am an imperfect poet and choose to convey feelings, and the many discoveries of our life’s journey, with clarity rather than over-compliance to form.
My output is, of course, subjective. I love hearing responses to it both sympathetic and contrary, for this is the nature of art.
Thank you for reading, and perhaps commenting, on my work.

Did you see, a bare spirit wanting to believe
That it was possible to be just me
When I looked into your eyes, I wanted to believe
