Depth, humor, knowledge, its all contained In his poems. Kostas has mastered the art of concise writing, but saying more in the process! Is that not what great poetry strives to find, that burning core of enlightenment, expressed in words with mental pitch and human tone.

I would like to take my turn, and add some lines of my own, regarding the essence of Kostas Lagos' poetry. By 'essence, ' I do mean essence! His poems strike the reader with the truth, - there is no way around! The brevity of his poetry, it can only mean the amount of previous thought necessary to conceive a poem (haiku, especially!) Kostas Lagos, keep them coming!

A gifted poet whose words grow on you. Very readable. Depth and substance contained in a few words...that's how we can describe his poetry.

Kostas Lagos is a poet with a lot of wisdom. LIke the 'sutras' of Indian spiritual literature, his writings are concise and crisp. The few words of his poems are pregnant with meaning. I love reading his poems. Be blessed always Kostas!
