He was born and died in Görümlü (Varz?l) village in Almus district, Tokat. In this study, 50 poems with the penname of Kul Himmet (in the titles and penname verses) existing in a periodical, will be analyzed. This periodical, which is written with Rika, in the shape of enrollment, is 246 pages. There are also various poems of Hatayî and Pir Sultan Abdal in the periodical. Some of the pages of the periodical are missing.

There are differences between the previously published poems and the ones in this periodical in terms of shape and numbers of verses; so, in order to create resource for comparative studies, the above mentioned 31 poems are also included in this study.
