    • POEM: Dandelion by Tiffany Rose Moczydlowski (6/24/2012 9:38:00 AM)

      You possess an admirable quality for a young and modern poet, that of structure and discipline, which increases the sublime beauty of your work. I shall follow you from my home in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico, where a life and a job have held me for more than six lustros. May I recommend you seek out the work of an Anatolian poet, mystic, blind, illiterate (what a curious word to apply to a poet, but you know what it means usually!) , whose work comes to us through the Centuries in the Oral Tradition: Yunus Emre. Of the several translations available, I BY FAR prefer that of The Drop That Became The Sea. Another favorite, if I may presume to speak about poetry to a real poet, is Constantin Kafavy, the Greco-Egyptian, resident of Constantinople not so many years ago; his short dramatic sketches of history are reminiscent of Browning, and yet need no comparison to appreciate their remarkably beautiful poetic veracity. All the Best to you, Tiffany Rose. Paul Nunn Cleaver, Hotel Tabachin del Puerto, Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico. Hotel photos: www.tabachininfo.com
