Random Poem:

Nick Tselepides of Athens, a poet and guide and friend to young poets at Poetry Connection

Nick Tselepides
Precision tailor of words;
one pair a whole suit
of salient surges;
of warm blooding serges;
brocades nature made.
Nick Tselepides,
Greek tailor,
modern day
His forebears had names
like Euripides;
Nick Tselepides,
a mindwright
Nick Tselepides!
He does that!
He makes time worn new
To my mentor and friend,
to the artisan, here,
to reshear my fabric
I hand you a scissors.
Oh, not to Fury me.
But if it be that,
they should bury me
near to thee
Nikos Tselepides
