Islands – poem & thoughts

I’m currently living on an island and working on two projects that are directly related to islands – the other being a poetry book, and the other being an immersive theatre performance.

There is something about islands I find comforting, even when this poem out of my self-published collection might suggest otherwise. You can order the book called Queen of Wandering from jennitiera.art/shop

Somehow islands make me also face a lot of things I tend to run away from in cities. Such as the horrible knowledge that I might have to eventually leave this place that I’ve fallen in love with. Unlike avoidant and distant people, islands let me linger long enough to get attached.

I kind of prefer this to avoiding.

I'm a playwright & poet from Finland and in love with Ireland. My work is often beautiful and disturbing, and some of the writers I've been compared to are Suzan-Lori Parks, Sarah Kane, Virginia Woolf - to name the three I'm most aspiring to reach while learning more about how words, rhythms, sentences, ideas, embodiments and wilderness tie together as works of literature.
