Daniel Brick

Biography

Daniel J. Brick (Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA)

I was born in the Twin Cities in 1947 and lived my whole life here. This is where I am rooted, near the Mississippi River, in a landscape of four seasons with many trees and parks and lakes. These are the natural things I treasure. Poetry and classical music are my passions. Over the years most of my friends have moved to warmer climates, so in old age I find myself to be something of a loner. But I have a talent for solitude.

I have always thought that a poem does not have 'one' meaning. It can (and has to) have many: one for each and every reader. If it’s so, what could be the meaning of the following verses? “/ Your eyes –Ethereal / Like butterfly wings./” Or : “Imagine how / Long was the night / And it broke into a day / Loaded with shadows — ../” ~*~ “/ I tuoi occhi —Evanescenti / Come ali di farfalla./” ...
