Nice to meet you,

I am jana.
A poet,
and lifelong learner
based in Zurich, Switzerland.
I started this blog back in April 2015.

It all first began with a simple writing space for me to discuss easy stuff
– however with time I have grown up and this page has become the place
for me
to vomit words on gray backgrounds,
to collect clouds,
to find introspection
and to mess with thoughts in English and in German.
Writing to me means
diving into creativity,
being playful,
reflecting deeply,
and letting go.

Back when I first started I wrote here: «I have an obsession with poetry, books and sad songs – some people say I am cheesy, because I admire the thought of true love. I would say I am […] partly lost.»

I am still very much this person, but I am also really not anymore.

I hope you will enjoy looking into a part of my life and I hope I don’t make you feel too sad.

Find Peonies momentarily
in their early morning’s full bloom,
revealing what lies within,
the layers fall delicately
as they burst open in true beauty.
Grey is all,
facets of a fading sun’s light,
shades of fractioned or dazzling blanks,
even painfully bright darknesses.
And a poet’s lips would never whisper
why her mind is filled with silver
and her heart is made of glass.
