I have been writing poems since 2009.
I began to paint with words—write poetry—while recovering from surgery. My physicians suggested that I should exercise both my mind and body. I then took up the hobbies of walking, photography and writing. Thanks to the encouragement from my friends I began and continued to write poetry inspired by my dreams. It was suggested that I use a voice recorder to keep a dream journal. Call it an active imagination, past life experience or something else. Over the past years, I have had many dreams about a place I have never been to. Seoul, South Korea. These dreams have been so vivid, I have been able to write poetry about Korea.
I want to live in a world where anyplace can be reached in just hours. Where everyone would rather party than fight. Where an Angel named Evelyne sings her loving songs to help people be happy.
“Have you ever been lucky enough to figure out where your dreams come from? I have. I've written many poems about a place that I have only been to in my dreams. This beautiful place is called Korea.”
