MINA BOULEKOU

(ATHENS)

A Literal Absence


Gazing your sore
I looked upon your sadness
And I said you….

There are no healing words
shuttered pieces crossed my mind
bearing not such a burden
you… my lost humble soul
thirsting for a deep breath
hugging you without a word
do not ever doubt …. that
nothing is able to break
the path of our tornment
returning to our bleeding Land
howling a desperate cry

I called you through a mighty river
singing like a drop
moving to the ocean without ever stopping…..
You will not perish if you do not wish it
Nothing is ever ordained,
because everything is crossed like a barrier.

All our world seems to have
a starting point as well as an ending point
again and again….
whether through storms or rainbows,
all roads bring life, and all have their virtues.


Divine Beauty has a strong will
a Sign of an Abundant Harvest
Keep a strong faith my Lord
and blessed be the day
I see you my honoured man
thy a reunion will come unfold….

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
