The Future Of The Earth

The loneliness will come
wherever you go.
In the shadow of fault
flicker the future of this world.
Those, who know, keep quiet.
Poet's pen, wounds open,
the way it's seeking justice.
Give us back our mother.
Give us back the Earth,
That with the sweet warmth
of heaven, infinitely,
constantly, get us ahead.

Theodora Koufopoulou-Heliopoulou

A Smile

A smile...
and every soul
is delighted.

George K. Stasinopoulos


without track of shame
- without titles and names -
sucked insatiably the Spring.
The smell of earth
disturbed her
and she long for you.

Zacharoula Gaitanaki

Greek Landscapes

Landscapes of my country, full of Light and Color.
I keep in mind Memories, in my fistful some native soil.
I walk on your ways, my Greece, and gaze greedily
I lock you up inside me.
I get across the extremityof the end.
To see the Light of your Sun and to enjoy the Sunset.
On untrodden desert islands, my steps sound
joining seabirds's fate.
Landscape blue, greek, beloved places.
Seaworth ships, "Sophia", "Giorgis", "Merope".
The waters of your rivers, murmur songs.
Hymns, for you, my country, the nightingales whisper.
The humble wild flowers, that grow on your earth
scatter a soft fragrance, wayfarer, on your touch.
Basil and velvet, myrtles and lilies.
Evident expression of holiday on childlike hands.
I pass and I dream, I remember and I weep.
In my mind, Light and Colors I add up with generosity.
Spreads of earth of my country' monuments of History.
Human destiny's distinctive symbols.
Temples, burial vaults, ancient ornaments,
theatres, columns, stadiums.
Uncultivated fields and small villages empty...
Landscapes of my country, overloaded with Memories.
I balance on their moderation the rhymes of my pen.
