Contemporary poetry, which is also extremely communicative, speaking with great sensitivity about femininity, love, loss, friendship, identity and beauty. Its central element is water or the sea, which acts distinctly subjectively, linking it to homeland and childhood; it is a symbol of openness, freedom, longing, the horizons of possibility, and connection with other worlds.
