The mind is enchanted by the impressions
They fight heroically, almost magically
Europe and Asia
The face of the Marbled King
plunges into the ether
Thought stops on why
memories have been altered
Oh! How to Stand Hagia – Sophia
to mourn your children
They raised mounds, covered with plaster
Our hope,  as a sweet breath
Make the hidden desire become a pigeon
to convey the brilliant news that we will become
golden troopers ...


And if you ever struggled to get away
to alter the memories
of the obsure past
You hid your dark thoughts
In your  past dreams
You were surprised by the  Spring in a full winter
If you try to trick the suffering,
the nightmarish outlook of your life
unconsciously we belong to our being
to our  tyrannical  desires…


As the moments
are gone
and the time is playing blindflies
with the empty moments of the eternity
the consciousness is speechless
looking for a truth,
an answer to the endless questions…

(Collection of poems  , Dreams of Oasis (Amphictyon of Hellenism, Department of  Literature, Thessaloniki, 2014 . The collection was also published in Italy under the title  Oasi dei Sogni, Il mondo dello scrittore, 2017)
