Phase One is the beginning of my writing poems, it is the phase of oversized topics and blurred beginnings, yet also the beginning of finding fixed and steady forms and continuity. There is experimenting in the beginning, experimenting with not much in behind, it is not back to the roots but creating the roots. Mostly consisting of German poems, this group contains both my earliest and some later poems, being less humble but perhaps equally revealing. The color is green, the green of nature and life.
