Contemporary Man


Internally I meditate

Synonymous and antonymous

searches and existential dilemmas ...

The modern man,

great teacher Socrates,

 is in truth

 the only animal, which ponders, judges,

 observe very carefully or is out of date?

Uncertain or sure?

Good or evil

Charlatan or honest

Ignorant or knowledgeable

Atheist or godly

Innocent or guilty

Demure or shameless

Ethereal or chameleon

Sensitive or unmoved

Inglorious or glorified

Steadfast or unstable

Unscrupulous or temperate

Babbler or disceet

Arrogant or humble

Immoral or moral

Unacceptable or receptive

Unarmed or in good faith

Unconscious or compassionate

Respectable or pathetic

Late lamented or forgotten

Indigenous or foreigner

Unpatriotic or patriotic

I hear you whisper bitterly:

"The only thing I know is that I know nothing"

"Unknown, indeed, are the counsels of our Lord!"



Night Of Luminescence


Our youth is in action tonight

when magically the light of purity adorned our lives

When we were sailing carelessly in abysses of bliss

And whispered, but loudly we were shaking the universe

with our liveliness

I am fascinated, you know, by that innocence

The lovingly attractive rejoicing we felt every time

we splashed in the pool of our childhood memories

And now the separation

The execution,

the cold blood solitary departure

But you are not alone

The course of our frozen thinking follows you

on your transatlantic celestial voyage

The dazzling smiles of the souls you gave life

The glance and smiles of your students

  you crowned with inexhaustible knowledge

The stars that will shine and send messages of your reciprocal love

The eternal firmament of the earth

that will send over your humanitarian greatness ...

To you our beloved ...



New creation


The journey of our life is short

Without how and why

Maybe and if

Self-satisfied thoughts are hopeless and vain

The selfish monism of existence

The hollow and misplaced words

The memory crawls in rugged alleys

to keep the competitive, laxative and suppliant epic of Diakainisimos *

But in the solitary confinement of self-critical search

  leads to the redemption

from the sigh of "I leave alone".

Armed with the shield of the collective


Gain spiritual purity

 Liberated from social conventions the silence is broken

Newly enlightened and newly baptized

the soul is spiritually renewed

 transcends the causality of space and time

and eschatologically self-fulfills through the Triune Divine Identity ...


* “Renewable week” is called ,during the Christian holiday ,the week that starts from Easter Sunday and ends on the Sunday of  Saint Thomas.
