Divine Waves


Are you scared?

Who is not afraid of loss, eternal escape

But I am more afraid of annihilation, of self-undoing,

of the terrestrial airtight

prison ship

The shackles of the mind and soul to avoid

They trap you, they blur your thinking

And you?

You simply deny that you have been

You lived and you live

You loved and you hate

You were betrayed and forgiven

Until you wake up from the nightmare and divinely emerged as Aphrodite hopeful ...



On The Soul


Your texture is indestructible, eternal

The timeless Father took care

To have pure intention

To purify our soul from earthly, meaningless and temporary pleasures

which make it a hermit passenger on an unmanned ship

without cruising compass


with weird stories, witnesses of delusion and dark labyrinths of eternal intoxication

Our Godfather invites us to make a big deal,


To provide, praying

Have mercy, humiliated

To live in ethereal mystagogs

and spiritual courtesy




I'm afraid

The impossible of the expected

the suddenly tragic

The possibility of the impossible

The unexpected desolation of our nature

I Touch

things you left behind while struggling to darn your perishable coat

To awaken the wonders of the world

To spread tentacles of compassionate thinking

I hope

in the vindication of incorporeal bodies ...
