The soil is light, almost mythical

Airy ornaments float in the ether.

Sunlight embroiders the fragrant flavors

and the Delphic landscape lies in eternity.

You occupy my memory,

my childhood impressions

the carefree winter Sundays

the braided hair of youth

the teenage smiles

the musical cycles of my life

the dreamy seas of the mind

the pure and beautiful moments

the summer expectations.

You exist, you resist, you consign and you surrender…



Memories Of The Civilians’ War


(Dedicated to Jewish Holocaust)


Thought cannot stand the memory…

The soul hurts silently

refuses to unlock

rusty doors.

The body is motionless, paralyzed.

Pale face looking for sunlight

silence becomes a cry.

Mute the hours of pain.

Icy look

seeking solace

So many innocent souls were lost

they killed the sacred soils,

the brave beings

The insight migratory bird travels spiritually

in the ethers of justification…



Incarnation Of Love



A touch of sincere affection

Fluttering of knightly greatness

Vastness of mental beauty.

You bring to life vague memories,

encourage charity events,

you change the flow of time,

of the historical error.

You generously teach the universe,

magnetize sea treasures,

magically unlock the cisterns of the earth.

You tirelessly endure the coming troubles,

bury your desires with a smile.

Your motherly gaze illuminates the crowds,

builds castles,

donates vital energy,

freezes underground sighs,

defeats cunning enemies.

Let your name be glorified…
