A seagull flying beautifully

meets a ship coming from the open sea

It loves the lighthouse’s role.


It greets us with a fare and modest way

It moves its tail

and leads us to the harbour.




A Look At The Aegean Sea


I love the Aegean Sea like I love the seagull

That accompanies me on my journey

To the closest lighthouse.


The sky covers Greece

With a magic veil

The sea caresses the scattered rocks

That dared to come close to the coast

Flirting the lonely islands

As they pass by.


The sea approaches the islands

Drawing Greece

Using the ink of the sea

upon white and blue paper.


God created the sea

To hug the islands

And he placed the islands

So as to create Greece.




The Little Yard Under The Acropolis


The baglama is having fun

flirting the bouzoukia

shy and little

it’s singing timidly.


The guitars and the dancers

surge in groups

along the stairs of Plaka

spreading joy

at every corner.




The perfume of good Greek coffee

is mixed with the narrow passages

Scattered girls

are sharing sweet hugs,

They take beautiful flowers

flirting invisible

heroes of the Acropolis

seeking for a medal of love.
