Poetry

Inspiration can be found everywhere: in art, nature, collaborations with others and the ordinary, everyday life. I have written two books (The Making of The Peace Within and Broken Dreams). Apart from that, I write poetry and have won several poetry competitions in the Netherlands and Belgium. I write in Dutch as well as English.

 

I am also part of a community called the Klimaatdichters (Poets for the Climate) who raise their voices to protect the planet.

 

Two poems in The Nonconformist Magazine (click on the title to view the poem):

Plan of Attack

 

 

My poem ‘Let’s’ is included in the wonderful book: 3,651 YEARS LIVED: Global Poetry & Prose Reflecting the Pandemic.

We’ve gone through-and are still going through- a roller coaster of emotions which can all be found in this book: poems about loss, pain and sorrow but also love, joy and hope (click on the poem to enlarge).
