The Land in between Thoughts
"Poetry is not a simple profession, and it should
never be so; or even worse, a carrier. The present book also makes us
understand that Poetry is a divine gift and, at the same time, a spirit
state of life. Our literary journals often host full pages of versified
lines. Among these many (so many!), easy- or hard-made verses still
emerge, like flowers of light, poems that fully and truly deserve their
name. But not all Poets deserving this name walk on the road of literary
journals, and some of them, rarely, most rarely, but more preciously
then, bring to life, not without sacrifice, poetical jewels enclosed
in personal volumes. This is the case of Elena Liliana Popescu, whose
verses of rare prosperity, enclosed in a splendid volume, greet us from
time to time, like rare beauties. But ''The Land in between Thoughts''
takes us a step further, bringing us toward the hidden mixture forged
by the Author, always lively, between mathematics - her main destiny
- and poetry - the food for her soul.
In what follows, I can only ask the Reader to behold the hidden springs
of these poems, the lively fruit that is never ''made up'', but rather
bestowed by the illumination of our Poet.
At the end of this volume, we'll find ourselves
already thirsty to get to the next Bandusia well the Poet beckons to
us. The rest is naturally meant to remain just silence."
