Since a young age, Xia has taken a keen interest in writing, both poetry and prose. Until they were about fourteen, they focused far more on the latter. As their interest in composition has grown, they have found that the former comes more naturally to them. They feel the nature of poetry allows rhythm, sound and structure to be explored perhaps in greater depth than prose, and so the link with music is stronger.

Their writing is inspired by very similar themes to those found in their music: Buddhism, other aspects of philosophy and psychology, nature and environmental issues.

If you would like to read examples of Xia’s poetry, please don’t hesitate to contact them. They would love to hear from publishers, editors, campaigners, composers, visual artists, or anyone with a connection to the written word.
