ZACHAROULA GAITANAKI


ZACHAROULA GAITANAKI

MOMENTS OF JOY
I learnt it long ago:
My bitterness to taste
in a glass punctured with holes.
My solitude to count
on a balance beam which loses.
Has our life and moments
of Joy to sweeten us.
They are absorbed by love and swim
in love’s depths
and after, they write poems
for “the moment” that is lost…






A SHORT – LIVED BESTSELLER
“Extraordinary, “Excellent”,
“Interesting”, “a beautiful book”,
“Important”, “a graceful book”,
“Gorgeously written”, “Fantastic”..
A young writer of a bestseller
was collecting words and reviews
in a notebook specially
for this purpose.
When, by chance, he opened it,
after some years,
all its pages were blank.







OF FORGETFULNESS

Those small hours
that the moments are confined
in the drawers of memory,
keep a dim recollection,
make it a shot of your pain
and throw the dice.
Even if come six in the line
give in forgetfulness the joy
to go for a stroll…
Whatever hurt you much
let it become a teardrop and a kiss
to ease you..







TREASURES
Time, History and Memory
they clap, cheer, keep silent.
Treasures put down
in their depths,
all that haven’t been
written and told.
