Hi Simone, what a beautiful name!
Thank you for telling me you liked my poetry…. what touched you most?
Every poem is an echo of a long quest starting in childhood…
Where do we come from?
Where are we going?
What is the purpose of my life?
How can I fulfil that?
And soon old scriptures and stories fascinated me and brought me to faith. And that is what I want to share.
My favorite piece? Without any doubt the new testament. The beauty of the scripture and its writings
Be blessed Simone, beyond expectation…
