Gašper Bivšek

Slovenia


Like myself also the poetry, written by my hand, has been shaped by the landscape into which I was born and the singing dialect of people, who layed the first words into my mouth and melodies into my ears. Poetry has always been a play for me and writting poetry like playing: a childlike wonder, which I never want to get tired of.
