Veronika Kivisilla

Veronika Kivisilla is a storyteller and bard, who made her poetry debut in 2011 with the collection Dear Calendar. Both this brief and spirited first work and the following Veronica officinalis (2012) convey the image of an author, whose humour takes note of small but important everyday details, and who rejoices in the world around us in a rich, enchanting language. Born in 1978 in Tallinn, Kivisilla is a rare species inhabiting the fringe of the city – occasionally fleeing to the country, the forest, and the sea. In her poems, nature, flora, and avifauna are perched side-by-side with the city, which she perceives around her just as well.
