|My writings, artistic and otherwise|
Some texts I have written in the past.
A haiku trilogy written in one sleepless night in the summer of 2000, from 5:15 to 5:50.
Science fiction haiku written in 2000. I've come across this idea on the web and tried my hand in it. Again a trilogy.
Yet another haiku trilogy. Mostly written on the shinkansen trip after my visit to Tokyo, in '99.
My haiku on Istanbul. These are the least coherent of all my city haiku because Istanbul is my hometown. It is impossible for me to see Istanbul the way an outsider sees it, as a whole entity. I can draw upon an endless collection of memories, moments, locations, and events. No three- (or five- or ten-) haiku reconstruction of Istanbul could make the place real for me, even if they originated from my experience.
I lived in Nevsehir, a small central Anatolian town when I was five. More than others these haiku are based on my rememberences.
