Ogriņš is endowed with powerful poetic temperament, he writes without restraint, mixing tenses, genders, styles, however, his poetry remains emotionally and intellectually balanced. One can rely on the taste and psychological sincerity of this poet – in his works we won't find anything false. Ogriņš' search for expression is interesting, stimulating and often quite convincing.
