In core of chase for gist



You can’t (in love and fond)
To see through favor’s net
How often charming blond
Was a forlorn brunet?

This is with any matter.
Sense is the only judge.
If I smell something better
When Reason is in charge?

In the core of chase for gist
The concept is so hard to find,
That truth shows a hidden twist
Which lies beyond the mind.

And what is solitude?
When talking with yourself
And peaceful night etude
Scared-out fairy elf.

The last speech was haze without light
Which brought the tired spin.
I was like a listener polite,
Just dislocated chin.

Leonid Rozumenko

Someone in your domain asks me to send a letter about myself. My pleasure - favorite topic. Who am I? Can’t keep a secret - athletic, open-minded, and generous, with a wide scope, love for women, good company. With love for science and to write something everlasting, which isn’t computer programming anymore. I was born in gorgeous Kyiv (Ukraine) more than 35 years ago, lived in the USA for longer than 4 years and my language is still in progress. My poetry is also a colorful picture of the unseeing battle between “yours truly” and English grammar. My Ukrainian or Russian accent has two unreliable reasons – it’s “for fun” and “hard to get rid of”. The meaning of my last name “Rozumenko” in Ukrainian is very close to “jaba-jaba a dada” in “Crocodile Dundee II”. I have several other weaknesses but I introduce them only to my closest friends. Yours truly, Leo Rozumenko more…
