new old kid on the blog,
with an occasional
old or new poem written off
the old writer's block
Ah yes, we SHALL gather! Wonderful poem. It is akin to Randall Jarrell's definition of the novel: ". . .a novel is a prose narrative of some length that has something wrong with it."As for "pilgrim," it can mean (among other definitions)"someone who travels to a holy place that is important in their religion" and/or "someone who visits a place because it is connected with someone or something that is important to them." The crucial thing is that it matters, is important. Poetry has been important to Vassilis Zambaras for over 50 years now! And humility, as expressed in this poem, is one of many admirable traits of Zambaras poems.
Ah, yes--so eloquently expressed--and I do thank you for that-- but in all honesty, can we say this pilgrim's work has progressed?
