Love and passion
move the memory of our history
waves the tear of time,
the deterioration, the sustainable mobility
Glory struggles to find her mate
and the invisible fate
cheating with a smile the visitors
of the past…


Hands ragged
like the sound of an old gramophone
Look absent and steady
Implore the  time to freeze for a while
In complete harmony with his own image ..
And the echo of the past
awaits to be justified ..


I am impatient, as they were
expecting battles and glories
For words I have said and have not expressed
For filmed films that have not been judged
For trials that have taken place and have not been implemented
For disgraceful motives of death, resentful
which changed the course of our history
For thoughts of peace that had no effect
For words of love that have hurt me
For heroes who defended our homeland
with their blood and have been forgotten
For famous actors
which tarnished our reputation
For those who refused our country
- pseudo- saviors-
that humiliated us
For uneducated people
-pretending to be wise-
who ignored us
For old  friends who disappointed us
For all the values we have distorted
and the tradition we have neglected ...


The night woke  up from her lethargy
wore flowers full of juices
and  closed the door to the regret
Embraced the day tightly,
played hide and seek with her
rolled lazily to her clean soil
and  framed her future


Here again…
So close to you
Separates us the wall of the universe
I hear the expression of your emotions
Your stigma again with me
Your footsteps traces in  a lonely harbor
In the remote sandy beach
of a forgotten summer show
I feel ...
The expression of your prayers
Our boat sails in the ocean
of broken lines
Parallel lives
The ultimate auspicious destination
will close our curtain ...


Obedient the verse in the pen of youth
The oestrus emerges
The invitation of  life is waiting
The completion
The Filling
The words fluttering occult messages
are hiding behind the light
of the unrestained emotion
The past is conspiring
