new old kid on the blog,
with an occasional
old or new poem written off
the old writer's block

As the hurricane approaches the states' east coast..a long sigh indeed..
The waiting's over, soon it'll be time to pick up the pieces.
The tightly knit sonic webs in any Vassilis poem reward slow reading, becoming noticeable, becoming a part of the meaning, in proportion as one takes the time to attend. That one long "i" in "silence", returning as a "sigh", gives this poem coherence, a dimension greater than may appear, and -- dare one murmur the forbidden word -- a satisfying sense of closure. A large return on a modest investment. And no loopholes.
Thanks, Tom; glad you took the time to attend--as soon as I cash in on my poetry stock, you'll get your share of the dividends!
