I'm a poet-writer-analyst. I have been writing poetry since I was six years old, the first poem was an Ode to God and creation. When I sensed the wonder of Nature, of this phenomenal process of creation around us, I was completely in awe and I began admiring the power which made all this, that was how I became a poet. I grew up with a deep love for everything around me, so I sought knowledge and became curious about the Universe, the workings of the human body, the human mind, the nature of matter, the nature of soul and apart from reading science, poetry, philosophy I collected several degrees without a definite aim, I was interested only in knowledge. As a child, poetry came naturally and as I grew up, philosophers, scientists and poets like Bertrand Russell, Einstein and Neruda, T.S. Eliot have influenced my thoughts and how I think. I also admire Oscar Wilde, Voltaire and Sartre and kind of get attracted to surrealism and existentialism. I have deep interest in quantum mechanics and psychoanalysis.I admire boldness and clarity in writing, but I also appreciate subtlety. I'm not too concerned about old style or modern writing, I like timeless classic composition, whether in music or poetry. I don't follow any particular writing style, I play around with styles and love experiments. Finding a balance between two opposing streams of thoughts has been a challenge and the motivating factor throughout my life. It's like I'm always caught between two worlds, between two opposing feelings and opposing forces and from this madness, I emerge as a writer.
Additional note: In my poetry, the God-the lover- the muse tend to become one and for my love poems, I'm never sure who I'm writing about so my inspiration would be all men, women, God, life, nature and forms/characters in art and literature.
Another note: This bio (as above) was written in 2007 and never updated. I do update my quotes regularly though. I've been slowly removing stuff so if you don't find something here or if there's a missing link, you'll find it on my website.(saberiroy.com)
