In The Greek Dimension

In the sea
in the sky building
colours are spread everywhere
Where are present
all the messmate
and  Greek memories
are heard
from time to time
when from our drunkenness
opens the curtain
in the footsteps of the restless and erotic Ulysses
we drink nectar Divine
we wet our bodies ...

Morning Chatter

I remember some glories thinking backwards
what I did in time.
Beautiful love, flowers, hugs
 then matched with the sound, the lights
moments were beautiful
drinking bitter wine.
But life went on.
I don’t like the mornings when they do not have sunrise
to take light from the glory.

My Angels

I want to get lost in your arms,
to wander in the vast and virgin paths of your heart,

to sink into the wave of your undying soul,
to be delighted by your being,
to take your breath ...
I look enchanted
and I try
to keep you,
an inexhaustible picture
to keep it out of time
the one who relentlessly changes everything
I know I can not keep you for long
to have you a prayer
to nest a life
in the most unique and hidden yours
but I would like to freeze the moment
an entire life,
like a miracle!

Dedicated to my children Stephanos and Alexis
