 Acropolis Of Athens


They have extended to the nothingness

The hidden face s and noses, are sculptures without breath

Giant columns, open the memory of blood


The suffering pilgrims

far away from wheat fields, olives, vineyards

step on the gate to the Holy Land


Parthenon, surrounded by eyes

The sky is puzzled and the Mediterranean Sea full of tears floats human bones

refugees, migrating in dreams


Athena Poseidon begets the lie of power in cool winter

Does the wind wake up the Acropolis or the acropolis cover golden light

The harp, sings blue tune for thousands of years

and the humble supplicants mourn for grace

20:37 am on April 23, 2019


The first draft was written on the island of Celia nitika

In the era of no machinery, the 18 meters high gate of the holly mountain, how those huge columns were transported to the top of the mountainit reminds me of the workers who built the temple, they created the "sweat fine art".


A Drop Of Water


A drop of water

Dripping day after day The creek became the sea A ray of light Shines year after year A small seedling becomes a big tree An encounter A white sheet alike meets a coloured pen Drawing a spring full of love.

A Beautiful Sakura


The most ingenious of painters

Painted last night a marvellous painting

Even the poor stop and admire

April’s beauty, nature’s masterpiece

A creature of heaven,

An angel descended on earth.

Translated By Germain Droogenbroodt
