Making special statements to the Londra Gazete, Aslan spoke as follows about her new poetry books: “I became poetry because of my feelings and wrote poetry. Everyone writes poetry during adolescence when emotions rebel against reason; regardless of whether it is poetry or not. The important thing is to be able to water your feelings and write poetry at the age of maturity. We are a part of nature, nature is like us: it is born in the spring; Birth-bearing comes with pain, beauty is its reward: therefore nature becomes poetry in the spring, poured out into pain and beauty. Autumn is death days for nature; death is also pain, its reward is sadness; That’s why nature becomes poetry in autumn and pours into pain and sadness.”
