As an avid reader and lover of poetry, Nout Van Den Neste has been writing poetry for years, both in English and in Dutch. Most of it remains unpublished to this day, but keep an eye on this page for appearances of old, discovered poems from the archives. He counts the poetry and works of W.S. Merwin, John Berger, Joanne Kryger, Rebecca Solnit and the atmospheric lyrics of bands like The Weather Station and Sun Kil Moon among his many sources of inspiration. Unpublished poems will find a home on the blog.
In 2017, the booklet Walking The Horizon was self-published in a limited edition. It featured nine poems written specifically for a selection of photographs by Nora Goerne. Both the poems and the photography deal with themes such as distance and memory, combined with an impressionist and contemplative style. If you’re interested in buying a booklet, please get in touch.
Here are three sample poems with three photos by Nora Goerne, posted on my blog:
