Biography of Ave Lilik

' Poetry for me is like the air. What is amazing to me is that when I express myself in my poems, others also breathe different feelings, even life into them. This tendency of poetry to change people’s lives forever simply through a pen, pad and a few choice words is an overwhelming reality for me.'

Lilik grew up as a farmer's daughter and has spent most of her life in Batu, a small farming town in East Java-Indonesia. She loves traveling, writing and reading poems.
As a local English instructor -teaching English as Foreign Language- she has students varied from children, teenagers to adults around East Java. She is also a free-lance interpreter. At the moment, she is again at another stop in her journey- struggling to answer life's never-ending questions.

A Memory Collector

Am a beachcomber
worshipping the snow-
and a suntan believer
loving the rain.

Setting my wings wherever
in dreams of tomorrow-
A memory collector
and happiness to gain.
