Holy Lamentation- Pieta


The heavy and embarrassed look imprisons the sadness of the moment

The mourning of life

The Holy Virginity captivates and invites

The inanimate Divine Body completely surrendered

looks eternally youthful

perpetually moving

The pain of the soul overflows

and the Heavenly Kingdom receives

the only truth

crowning with glory our passions and fears…




Dual Existence


Lord of exhortations

Of hope

Of persuasions

Of wishes

Lord of the Powers

Of universal worldviews


As human nature

He taught our lives emotionally

Light up our inaccessible path

changed our short-sighted look


As a Godman

Scatter our malicious thoughts,

The mental humiliation

of our perishable texture

Be our fair judge

Bless us with Your great compassion…




Nuda Veritas*


You slept

The wave caressed you and you got lost

At a time when nature voluptuously conducted its classical symphony orchestra

You strayed

Went up

Crowned with daffodils

Maenades ** accompany you with libations and Dionysian ode

You desired other heavens

You traveled

When time stopped counting and the minute hands were praised the eternal silence

You nested in the arms of the cosmic deity

And now your spirit rejoices happily in the warmth of the heavenly priesthood ...


In memory of all those who left us too soon…


* The naked truth- Horatius, Carmina

** In Greek mythology Maenads were nymphs, followers  of  the Greek God of wine, Dionysus
