There, the end of another year

is here once again.

how times flies

and overtakes me!

it overtakes me and ruthlessly

pushes me into the abyss.

i am searching for allies, to beat it.

to slip by it , to save myself.

And never to be defeated by it.

To make it obey to what i want.

To send it back to the early seventys

and stop time there.

To be blessed again

with a never ending celebration,

for the joy of life.

to  savour once again

the sweet fruits of justice and peace/

And live on the rhythm of celebration

what ever life i am left with.


To caressed me

and i come to life

the creation smell sweet

the feast bigins.

i dress up in morning

in colours in light

i worship the trees,

the earth , the water.

I kissed the noon

and my heart grew wings

it fluttered

it searches for the embrace.

i be friended the  down

it fell in my two hands

i married  life

and had three children

i named  them love,

justice and humanity

and i have happiness

as my constant companion

and i am not afraid of death

nor of pitfalss.


Since the mythical times

they stand like bright beacons

of love of friendship

Pelops and Hercules

And the flames that light

at the altar of Olympia

are the people's compass

to the path they paved

Fine men and women

arrive on time once more

from the neighbourhoods of the world

to compete for the wreath.

In friendship and love

in the stadium once again

they will strive for peace

and world happiness.
