Biography of Vassilis Comporozos
Hi, my name is Vassilis Comporozos. I' m from Greece. An EFL teacher and translator, I also love reading and writing (mostly poetry) . I have published 3 poetry collections in Greek so far and taken part in three poetry anthologies as well. I have won some poetry prizes. I have had poems published in some Greek literary magazines and, also, in some Greek and English websites (www.poemhunter.com and www.allpoetry.com) . I can speak Italian as well and love Latin too. I have also written and put on stage with my students, some verse (humorous, I hope!) fairy tales. I adore English which I find the ideal vehicle for my new passion, haikus and tankas.

The sun’s won again. Dark heavy downpour pounds at My worn-out heart, though. -
New Born Poem
New born poem (haikus) A new poem was born. Its cry, flash of wild lightning
By The Fireplace
Flames in the fireplace. Hands that touched them, got burnt but now know their heat.
The Silence Of That Feeling
The silence of that feeling The silence of that feeling rustling past the moon
Gospel on my desk.
Birds chirping their happiness.
Dawn knocks on my door.
Note: Basically I write in Greek!
Recently - due to a small award I was granted at a poetry contest -
I 've taken on writing haikus, (I'm nuts about them!)
and I feel the English language is perfect for this form!
Also, I adore English!
