Here vampirism may be perceived...

Haunting images of captivity...

A good and sensitive depiction...

Much better than the other one that...

As we all are human...

That's action... ()

I wonder...

When you're strange...

Ach, harmony, harmony...

Why don't we all set sail...

The languages seem to mix up...

A splendid...

This is very much to my liking ()

Concise and well-shaped, Chris!

Absolutely a valid solution...

The reason why you should revise this, Ionut...

Also very eloquent in classical style...

You keep delivering good poems, Lee Ann...

Thank you, Ionut... ()

Quite open to various interpretations...

A perfect comparison...

Some exquisite images and rhymes here...

Read this one just now...

Constantin, how nice...

One complaint here

Life and death...

Sounds to me as a blend of...

Coming from that painters own city... ()

You found very good solutions...

A story told...

Lee Ann!

By all means...

Poetry as a tool...

You are obviously...

Congratulations, Bogdan! (of course, sorry!)...

And the question is...

That rite... ()

It would be suitable...

Oops, forgot to put you ...

"My past has never been better/than this....

Some very nice classical images there, Marius...

That day has come, Syd!

One reason...

Nature employed...

My opinion about this poem is just about the same...

Welcome back from your absence, Syd!

I absolutely agree with...

So true...

Romanian essence....

Part time love...

Real nice one, Marius...


Glad you liked it, Vicleanu...

Hardly understandable poem...

All the things we are...

Your poem reflects...

Not badly written this fantasy scenario...


Short and concise...

Well composed...


Verschiedene languages, bueno!

Silly me...

Please explain to me...

Too many errors

The blockheads escape my comment...

I appreciate that, Marius...

Urban filth and ...

In through the open window...

I guess you must be a bit educated...

Hardly about football...

Definition of clair obscure from The Free Dictionary: ()

Thank you, Chris...

More compact...

I sense...

This poem is balanced...

Very visual poetry with a temperament...

This prose piece...

I thank God for the fact that one text may...

Important question, Chris.

Interesting biblical allusions...

It does feel good...

That worldly yellow star...

Compressed existential surrealism...

Let me welcome you to the site, too, and...

Cheers, Marius...

It's a pleasure...

Again; Marius, not really a Haiku...

As far as I know the Haiku set of rules...

To the above I need to add...

And now it seems...

And finally...

Now this really works...


Irene certainly has a point and..

Containing exquisite, concrete images..

This poem has potential...

Lost patterns...

Doing the "Severed Head".... ()

Floyd at the flat...

Written with a sense of humor...

As a glimpse of intense youthful mourning - the absence...

Not bad, Irene, but...

Not bad, Irene, but...

Syd Barret...

Natures beauty and...

Irony in this poem...

Ode to a question...

Yes, Bogdan, ignorance...

Beautiful alliteration... ()

Love is God's intention...

Awaiting the miracle...

Chris, we ride the images...

Thanks a lot, Marius!

It seems clear... ()

Interesting classical allusions...

Peace in the valley.

Ah, those sepia-colored frames depicting faces...

Art, sensitivity...


There's musicality within this poem...

Chris, the responses on this one delights me!

Thanks a lot, Mike. You really hit the spot...

Thanks a lot for your response, Marius!

And.. ()

Marius is right regarding surrealism....


The reason why I put this one on the list is...

Now, here's a bit of drama...

Yes, I know...


Oops, misspelling -

Welcoming the new kids in town.

I lke this, many fine images and good rhytm...

One fine newcomer!

A dreamy sadness...

Luckily the laws have changed in Britain...

Really it's perfection that I fear, because...

Couldn't avoid....

This text is written in better english than the one I wanted revised...


With these additions...

...Sorry, but I don't really see...

...Sorry, but I don't really see...

whispers through our forests dense with fog and deep... ()

I find it hard to disagree...

Very good idea, but then again we have to deal with...

Looking forward...

I appreciate the imperative emotion you put forth here...

Me, I just love Pinocchio...

Lifted up

I like this too...

In addition to the funny point you make...

Political lies lead to war and large accounts...

Some believers, Ion...

Let me add; sophistication=

Fine, concise...

Going for enlightenment, Maspros?

Taking to the air...

Exactly, Marius!

Fine, original idea....

I know, Dan...

I know, Dan...

I guess we won't agree in this case, Marius...

Pig Power! ()

I certainly agree... ()

Beauty and genocide...

Generalizations, Dan...

Interesting elaboration...


As a matter of fact...

Good writing, fine images, but please...

An interesting poetic elaboration...

Is this about an individuals remorse...

And these weapons cost a lot more...

The magic...


Excuse me...

Nice writing with good rhytm and images, just...

Love is all there is...

Amigo, mankind is caught between collectivist states, like China...

I suggest, Daniel...

Venturing into the surreal, Marius...

Silver bullets,,,

Thanks a lot, Sydney!

One way of reading this...

Why, indeed is Sydney Krivenko now without her former...

Why, indeed is Sydney Krivenko now without her former...

Sometimes we really...

A valid musicality in your poem here, Marius...

Opens up for...


A bit confusing...

Hopefully a candle will always remain lit...

Expressive yes...

One cutting example...

Maybe a bit too much...

This does not refer to race...



Ah, that's potential!

That part of spiritual existence... ()

A soft whisper...

Surreal, yet concrete...

Such a refined contribution... ()

Please don't let me be misunderstood!

Thank you for correcting that error and thus making ...

There is certainlys some good content her, but...

Interesting, romantic and metaphysical...

Greetings from (Peace and)Love Street...

What a nice, spantaneous response, Chris!

Thanks a lot, Chris! The great inventions and the myths...

....if dead stars dance ()

....if dead stars dance of life

Precise and lighthearted

Thank you very much for enlightening me concerning...

Indeed; "one waxdripping arm rose", Marius, and...

Reminds me of... ()

On the very spot, Marius!

When the feeling gets through...

I like the way you,ve pieced this one together, Marius..

As I see it Marius...


Email must be made functional


- the birds are flying through us without the slightest suspicion

Loved that cryptosaurus, Felix

Felix, I read this just now,,,

The secret sacrifice of rubber and flesh

Saxonisms and nonsense

Unslept dreams...

Here you come through to me...

Sorry, Joshua, you'll have to do better...

This contains hope...

Biography John Willy Kopperud

First years spent in various towns surrounding the Oslo fiord. Grew up in a suburb east of the city, both near to and withdrawn from my numerous peers. Significantly radicalized at the age of fourteen. Grew disappointed with the revolution and signed up for the magical mystery autumn 69. Radicalized once more. Dropped out once more. Fairly well educated during the 80's and 90's.
Poetry? Off and on, I'd say. Besides poems I have weitten both pop lyrics (plus lyrics for contemporary music)and short stories. What moves me? Imagination I guess. Imagination should not contradict everyday life (and the other way around.)
I must hold forth that good old Willie S. has quite a point when he gives fair warning regarding "The man who hath no music in himself."
Music? I have mentioned pop lyrics - to be more precise - most of these are connected to the singer/songwriter tradition. Concrete and melodious music. I have also been active in another musical area,
in the crossroad between music and noise. This is not academic sheet-music, it's rather built on improvisation and momentary exploration. Later on the product has been technically modified. Roar Borge My accomplice in the project "Fisk på Disc" available with the MP3 Album "School of fish'n'chips" through the net-distrubutor, TibProd. He has done the producing in his home studio on his own computer. The album is no. 53 in the companys catalogue and the address is :
Ten tracks on the net for you to download. Be my guests!

My wife, Kristin, is responsible for some very nice poetic lyrics. For some of that material I have written
pop/singer-songwriter music.

Married to my life companion at the age of 33.One child. We live in a suburb some six kilometers from where I grew up.
Career: No big deal. Life: Good. Hardships: Yes
Happiness: Yes.
