Biography of Gabriela Duricova
I have always loved reading books. In literature I found magic - anything and everything is possible between a books covers. To me books are not things, they are beings... they speak, they breathe, they share their outlooks, wisdom, they ask questions, theyre soaked with emotion. Books have their own memory separate from humans.
Some time in 2010 a friend asked me to translate for him some of my Slovak poems (Slovak is my native language) and there dates the start of my English writings. I mainly focus on all sorts of poetry, song lyrics, short stories and fairy-tales; I like traditional forms and free verse equally but I find it important for each of my works to follow a specific rhythm. Every piece I write is different from the others, I avoid holding on to just one type of structure in an attempt to give each of my works a unique character.
As much as writing helps me vent and keep my mind clear, my main goal is to reach out to the readers and evoke some sort of emotion. Whatever I write about, emotion is the base my storyline is built upon. I incline to using surreal imagery, as it helps me portray well known, obvious or you can say ordinary figures/impressions/situations/relationship patterns in an original way.
Thank you for visiting my page, I wish you happy reading (and writing in case youre my fellow author) :)
Your soul is silent but not still
Like storm upon lavender hill
It comes from where wild horses run
To find the place where sleeps the sun
Warm winter nights go darker blue
Just like the peace I find in you
Together we sail heaven's plains
Direction changes, aim remains
