The Last Adieu To The Immigrant’s Birds


I run quickly as happy child 

Looking for the light of eternity

I am so happy to meet them for the last time my lovely birds

It was my great meeting with the nature

I missed their colors and wild smell of freedom

I am in hurry even I try to fly as they can do so easy

And I fly but not as quickly as they can

At least I arrived to the bird’s big meeting place, the huge tree still their

But there is no one still waiting me it was too late

To meet the paradise birds no more whispering in my ears my heart was beating hard and quickly

I lost my lovely birds they almost immigrate to other land

Yes they make fun when they accept me to join them at the long journey

I tried to have wings to be close to them far from the humanity nature

But they cannot believe me someone lied to them before me

So they don’t trust anyone any more

I have no chance I will be alone

The nice birds and their whispered disappeared this summer

I will Waite … next year I will find my lovely birds on that big green tree again

Now I smell the rest of their breathing mixed with the sweet songs of the darkness.

Adieu my friends I will keep waiting you there.

Thessaloniki, Greece.


The Ship


Leaving with my back

Looking with my eye

My only light, the moon.

My only companion, the wave.

The memories are beautiful

In nature.

Flights of joy to the ports of happiness

Having the moon as a guide,

Upon the wild waves

I travel across the Aegean’s darkness

And I get lost.


Travelling from Piraeus Harbor


Winter In The South


Early at dawn

Summer brings a rain

For me


I breathe the Mediterranean

vapor with African magic

I read my memories

On the wet asphalt


I seek for the lost Atlantis

In the fog of time


I long to climb onto the rain

And through the thunders

To communicate with the divine skies


My legs are getting lost

The sky is covering me

A dreamy magic

Is stealing me


The language of the present

Has not been translated

What matters is the sensation

The message is read while still wet


I go away before the end of

The storm and the reflection
