Congrats.

ΑΓΑΠΗ ΚΑΙ ΣΥΜΠΟΝΟΙΑ

Πρόσωπα της αγάπης
όμορφοι  Άγγελοι στο όνειρο ακροβατούν
στην θαλπωρή μιας Ανοιξιάτικης 
προσδοκίας η ψυχή και ο νους 
σαν το αγκάλιασμα σαν το φιλί 
αξεχώριστα γεννήματα 
η συμπόνια και η αγάπη

***

Πόσα ονόματα έχει η ψυχή 
και ο νους του ανθρώπου ...
σαν τις γαλήνιες μορφές που 
στην βία του κόσμου δεν 
συντρίβονται 
σαν τις ρίζες που τρέφουν 
το δένδρο αιώνια 

***
Πόσα ονόματα έχει η 
αγάπη και η συμπόνια 
σαν την τροφή 
σαν της καλοσύνης 
την ελευθερία .................
σαν τα συναισθήματα 
όμορφα τριαντάφυλλα που ανθίζουν 
στην σπλαχνικότητα μόνα 

***

 Στην γη των αδικημένων
την αυγή καλωσορίζω
με το περίσσευμα
μιας καρδιάς, αγνής
την αγάπη σμιλεύω


LOVE AND COMPASSION 
 
Faces of Love 
Beautiful angel in the dream stunts 
the warmth of a spring 
expectation soul and mind 
as embracing as the kiss 
inseparably offspring 
compassion and love 

*** 

How many names has the soul 
and the mind of man ... 
as serene forms 
the violence of the world 
crushed 
like the roots that nourish 
the eternal tree 

*** 
How many names has the 
love and compassion 
as food 
like goodness 
freedom ................. 
as feelings 
beautiful roses that bloom 
in compassion and kindness alone

*** 

  In the land of the wronged 
welcome the dawn 
with excess 
a heart of pure

love sculpts
