Kiyo’s Corner — March ’19


Hello and welcome to the March edition of Kiyo's Corner 🙂

Thanks for taking the time to read what I've been up to this past month, which was filled with some variety like writing —of course—, but also the creation of new poems —which comes with a special highlight— and of course, the official Kiyo Shop launch!

—On Books and Poetry

Last month I shared the blurb for Black Out, the novel WIP I'm working on, and I can announce that the first two chapters are very much done, and to my liking, and I'm currently working on the third! I have to admit, I'm not the world's fastest writer, but this month I had a whole array of other things that practically ate my time, too (like the shop launch), and also the creation of new poems. However, with April unwritten before me, I'm sure I'll return to the world of Black Out soon again, and am very much looking forward to it!

As said earlier, my stash of visual poems were running a little low, so I dived into photoshop to replenish them — yet, also busied myself last week with something completely new. For some time, a fourth series' idea had been occupying my mind, which involved handwritten poems and photography. Even though I certainly love using the beautiful stocks I find on CC0 sites online, I have been wanting to share a series of poems that was entirely my own, from start to finish. And, I think I've found it. I'm still getting my feet wet, so to speak, but if my results stay the way they are, I plan to share a sneak-peak, or a full announcement, next month — so, stay tuned 😀

—The official Kiyo Shop Launch

On, Wednesday the 13th of March, it was finally so: the launch of the Kiyo Shop, hosted through Zazzle! After adding all the finishing touches, and checking the links —and checking them again— I opened the shop's digital doors and received many wonderful, and positive replies. If you missed the original blog post, though, I happily direct you to it here, or if you'd love to visit the shop instantly, you can find that here! Filled with a variety of things, the shop holds Photo and Canvas Prints, Notebooks, Phone Cases and more, featuring imagery from all my Visual Poetry series and also illustration/design work from my Poetic Prose works, and my illustrated poetry book, Dreamscape.

I plan to add new items as consistently as I can, growing the collection to include more and more of my poetry to be available. I also sincerely hope you'll enjoy having a browse, possibly finding something that you'd wish to own, and if you have any questions or would like to leave a line, please do so below!


So, journeying  to the last element of this Corner, I'll wrap this up with an overview of my personal shared works (Visual Poetry and/or Poetic Prose) that I upload on my weekly Literary blog, hoping to leave a touch of inspiration behind for anyone who needs it — scroll down for more (:

Micro Poetry Series

Inspired by philosophy, nature, day-to-day thoughts and emotions, this minimalistic series aims to encourage,
ponder, or show you the beauty in small things and moments. Curious for more? Visit the page.

Haiku Series

Influenced by the art found in traditional Japanese poetry styles, this series contains haiku based on
the continuous changes that happen all around us, in both nature and life. Curious for more? Visit the page.

About Love Series

With words from both sides of the heart, this series collects the sweet beginnings and sad goodbyes, moments of romance, and days of heartache;
the multitude of feelings that come over us when we fall... in love. Curious for more? Visit the page by clicking here.

With this monthly update and collection I'll leave you behind today, I sincerely hope you'll enjoy it — and, as always, want to drop me a line, leave one in the comments below 🙂

Love, Kiyo
