your blue sweater

its cold outside
cold inside too.
Your blue sweater
keeps me warm.

I keep it in my closet
and you in my heart.

I felt in love with someone else
I known you would be glad
but he left suddenly
and me, here, sad.

its cold outside
inside too

wearing your blue sweater
listening to his blues tunes
to keep me warm
those blues-days.

peculiar attraction
my first feeling
when  I met you

my first image of you
before I saw your photo

a piece of fabric
I thought we were waving.
a sail
for a boat to surf the waves.

your warps my wefts
your wefts my warps

and suddenly
an adamant "No"

 3WW : adamant, fabricate, peculiar

Τι άλλαξε; Τι χάλασε;
Λες και πάνω στο διάφανο φως
μελάνι στάλαξε.
Πού χάνεσαι; Πού τρέχει το βλέμμα;
Ποια αλήθεια μου κρύβει ο καπνός
ή μήπως κρύβει ψέμα;
Θα κοιτώ στα μάτια σου
θα ρωτάω μέχρι να μου πεις
θα χτυπώ στα βράχια σου
ως το τέλος της σιωπής.
Κόψε και μοίρασε στα δύο
πάντα η αγάπη θέλει δύο,
δυο να γελούν στο ίδιο αστείο
δυο να ζεσταίνουνε το κρύο
δυο να μοιράζονται αμαρτία και θεό.
Κόψε και μοίρασε στα δυο
πάντα η αγάπη θέλει δυο
δυο μονομάχους στο πεδίο
δυο στο μαζί και στο αντίο
δυο να μοιράζονται τα πάντα ή το κενό.
Τι ξέφτισε; Τι έσπασε;
Λες και επάνω μου χούφτες γυαλιά
η νύχτα πέταξε.
Ποιος έφταιξε και ποιον ν`αθωώσω;
Να σε πάρω ξανά αγκαλιά
ή μήπως να θυμώσω;

Hush, don't speak !
I wish I have told you
that critical moment
before the loud, persuasive words
of how much I don't care
and you don't care too
absorbed us.

Hush, don't speak!
I wish you have told me
before that silly game
was about to start.

Neither of us said that
we choose to make noise
and word by word
a wall appeared between us.

Hush, don't speak!
Hear the riches hidden behind the silence.
Alas, its too late to say that

Hush, don't speak
we both said
and then
no loud noises
no persuasive words
but what it hurts
is the absence of the riches.

and a wall.

My heart is not glad.


3WW words : loud, persuasive, riches

red stains

photo from here

the dam burst 

fierce water
floods everything 

she has to break away
before gets crushed

red waters...
she already  bleeding

One sip of wine
the broken pieces are now in her bag

one last sip
before she parts

she looks back
there is nothing left
appart a red stain on the white tablecloths
as a reminder
of that day
the dam broke

contribution for the Theme Thursday. prompt : break

what now?

was just a blink
or i was sleeping for a long time?

What title I should give
to that occasion?

Staring at your photo, you still look kind
just those burning arrows with your name on them
don't make sense

was just a blink
or i was sleeping for a long time?

"what now?" the neon sign 
blinks and asks
and with blinking eyes
I try to see if there are any other words
between the "what" and "now"

is it "what we do now?"
or "what I do now?"

What title should I give to that occasion?

My heart is not glad

The wanderer rests in a shelter.
He obtains his property and an ax.
My heart is not glad.

This describes a wanderer who knows how to limit his desires outwardly,
though he is inwardly strong and aspiring. Therefore he finds at least a place
of shelter in which he can stay. He also succeeds in acquiring property, but
even with this he is not secure. He must be always on guard, ready to defend
himself with arms. Hence he is not at ease.
He is persistently conscious of being a stranger in a strange land.
Richard Wilhelm's and Cary F. Baynes translation "I Ching: Or, Book of Changes"

I dare you

if you dare
crack the iced layer
shutting in your heart

if you dare
brake the mirrored window
concealing the view

if you dare
go beyond the practical hardships
like a tough shell
cutting your way

smash it

if you dare

and dive in
to the core
where the essence lays

if I dare to ask, "dare you?"
a pearl is not a promise.

I dare you to ask, dare I?
to crack the ice
to break the mirror
to see what's beneath

ask, dare I?
you already know
you are broken

blue cells

she got the blues

Jan 22, 2011


Sitting on the bench
across the closed gate
at the other side of the shore

You are working
on new designs.

a new bridge
a castle

Lights and your shadow
behind the informant curtains
cross the dragon guards
the gate
the water.

Sitting on the bench
talking to the sky
asks to keep you company
while you are working
on your new designs.

Descents to the great water

no poetry


dark corridors.
your steps and steps not yours brake the silence of the castles lambyrinth.
somewhere there is a door with a ladder to the moon.
its silver light an imaginary bacon cracks the darkeness.
its flame keep you warm.

seeking the doorway....
the ladder....
the moon...

no music creates no poetry

she was with him at the attic
when he called her from the living room

always makes you smile

Happy New Year to all of you !!!
