The poetry of Lara De Ann is influenced from her vast experiences of travel, tragedy, ecstatic miracles, the many people that have come and gone through her life and from her uncanny, alternative perspective. However, usually when Lara writes poetry, she takes dictation. She writes what she hears and just puts down on paper the words that come streaming into her mind. As a receiver, she listens deeply and allows the feelings to be translated into language. Lara writes poetry when she hears a poem coming to her. She never decides to write, it is just inspiration that happens.
