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.

Vassilis Comporozos Poems
I Want To Be Your Love
I want to be your love I want to be your kiss when tender dawn pours its loving caress
Lizard Running (Haiku)
After Rain (Haikus)
The sun’s won again. Dark heavy downpour pounds at My worn-out heart, though. -
A Heart Ajar
A heart ajar A heart ajar a dream half seen
By The Fireplace
Flames in the fireplace. Hands that touched them, got burnt but now know their heat.
A Star Has Fallen
a brush of light that painted a little corner deep in the firmament
Like A Bolt Out Of The Blue
Rain water dripping the huge cloud’s glory
A rare thing to see in that place. An oddity. Bright, clear, like new life.
Happy Solitude (Haiku)
Gospel on my desk. Birds chirping their happiness. Dawn knocks on my door.
No Sky, No Clouds (Haiku)
Derelict House (Haikus)
Derelict house. Walls peeling off. Swallows that Fly away like dreams. -
The Soul (Tanka)
Framed in the trappings of rich man-made vanity, an boundless desert.
By The Fireplace
Flames in the fireplace.
Hands that touched them, got burnt
but now know their heat.
Flames having no power
over me, unlike wild dreams
never to be fulfilled.
A little log untouched
by fire. Like a soul who braved
the world and won.
Smoke rising aloft.
Eyes that follow it, breaking
free from gravity.
