Dr Vassos Lyssarides has been writing poetry most of his life: at home, in cars, in the office, on aircraft. Sometimes he writes in the moments between appointments, political or otherwise.

An anthology of his work written in the original Greek and spanning several decades is soon to be published.

> The subjects could be based on reactions to events, feelings, encounters or visual stimuli. At other times it "seems to come by itself," he says.

He is very much inspired by Cyprus, his homeland, but also by Africa and Palestine. He has been writing since student days.

When he writes, he says, "It has to come from inside - probably it has been maturing for some time - and then I have to express it."

Sometimes his work can reflect melancholia; at other times it may be an analyses or conclusion regarding life in general or its meaning, or man within that framework. "Sometimes the message is not positive," he says.
