The Anatomy of Waves

My first poetry collection, The Anatomy of Waves, was published on March 19, 2021. It is a love letter to all the versions of myself that I never was and to my home made of waves and lava.

This poetry collection is divided into five chapters forming a story of loss, trauma, joy, ocean waves, islands, finding a home and oneself. They sing from breaking and healing, from running and arriving. Inspired by the nature of the Azores and the wonders of the soul, these poems will take you on a journey deep inside yourself. Be careful, you might get lost in your own wilderness.

The Eloquence of Hurricanes

My second poetry collection, The Eloquence of Hurricanes, was published on June 25, 2022. It is a darker collection, focusing on nature, climate change, broken hearts, friendships and hope. It is an exquisite balance between the beauty and terror of life.

Praise for the poetry collections

Nina (on Goodreads): „The Anatomy of Waves is a book filled with poems full of wholeheartedness and magic. Tasmin created a safe space with her debut, reading the poems make me feel understood, connecting with my true self and give me lots of inspiration. Combined with the beautiful cover it feels like a break, almost a short vacation to an home within an ocean of magic. Thank you Tasmin for your voice and your story. I am in love!“

BeckyAnna (on Amazon): „This book is just so lovely and wonderful, I can’t put it into words. Exactly the thing I needed to read right now, almost every poem hit different. I’m German, but the English was pretty easy to understand, so don’t be scared if you’re not a native speaker!“

At least two more collections are currently planned!
