Bica de Ideias


 An idea without action is like a song without vocal. Corine Timmer, Faro, Portugal 

welcome to my site

Bicadeideias is about ideas turned into projects and passions that move me. 


One of those passions is animals. A few years ago on a dusty road in the south of Spain an encounter between myself, a baby boar, and a pointy-eared hunting dog touched my heart to such an extent it led to my first children´s storybook, Djabali´s Journey. Since then I have written more children´s stories, taken online  creative writing courses, and fallen in love with haiku poetry. I am currently completing an anthology of dog haiku which will be published soon. It is a non-profit project and all proceeds will go towards care and rehoming of street dogs in Faro, Portugal. For more information about my books please visit bicabooks on this site or just click on the red button below to save time.

Corine Timmer holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration and a diploma in Interior Design. She was active in the design world until a road trip to Spain in 2014 re-awakened her passion for writing and in 2018 she self-published her first children’s storybook. In the same year it won a Mom’s Choice Award. Haiku crossed her path by accident in 2015 and she’s been hooked ever since. Corine has been published in several on and offline haiku journals and anthologies. In 2017 one of her haiku won an honorable mention in the Haiku Society of America’s annual Harold G. Henderson Haiku contest. In 2018 she won an International Sakura Award in the VCBF’s Haiku Invitational Contest. She is currently working on an anthology of dog haiku which will be published in 2018. She lives in the countryside in the South of Portugal.


On 17 April 2015, The Haiku Foundation inaugurated HaikuLife, a video project celebrating International Haiku Poetry Day. HaikuLife is both a program of haiku videos offered on International Haiku Poetry Day, and The Haiku Foundation’s video presentation format. HaikuLife includes videos in the HaikuLife format as well as other formats. Here is my contribution to HaikuLife 2018 "Life is Beautiful". Please visit the Haiku Foundation to enjoy more entries by talented poets and artists from around the world. www.thehaikufoundation.org
