What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My wife, the people around me, nature itself, and other spirits and souls from the Otherworld — everything inspired me to write Dear You,. The inspiration was too strong that I had no choice but to write the book.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Some of the characters in the poems are based on my own life — they are real; while the other characters are merely creations of pure fantasy. I am a believer in fiction so it does not make so much difference. And there are also those whom I believe to be souls from the Otherworld and wanted their story to be told.
“I love you in the most meaningful, meaningless ways ~
Like a sunflower that bends
In surrender to your fetching rays.”
“With your surrendering lips of red
And sly body of a prey ~
“For love is faithful;
And faith, sometimes, must open its eyes
And learn to trust in love ~
Love with burning lips and daring tongues,
“So close that your breath is my breath,
So close that I need you to breathe for me.”
