    A NOTE ABOUT MY POEMS

    For thousands of years artists yearned to integrate Truth, Goodness, and Beauty. Poems HEAVEN & THE BLIND MAN'S WIFE did it. In HEAVEN it is in the image of a baby. If we watch a baby closely, we will deeply believe it is true. Since we all were babies once, which means a human being originally IS an integration of Truth, Goodness, and Beauty; and he comes from HEAVEN that is mother's bosom.
    THE BLIND MAN'S WIFE is another self-sacrificial model of Truth, Goodness, and Beauty. Here the sublime replaces baby's innocence.
    Different art forms address different features of reality: music is about memory, paint - this moment, poetry - creation. Poetic rhyme is music, poetic picturesque words are paints, poetic good will is goodness. Poetry can integrate Truth, Goodness, and Beauty, since poetry is creation which makes everything possible.

The whole loving world,
Sucking milk with drunken eyes
Half closed,
Kicking mechanically,
