Dimitris P. Kraniotis

Rookie (15.07.1966 / Larissa, Greece)

Ashes


The fireplace
was eager
to put a fullstop,
in the sentence
where the road

stuck
upon the word of happiness
with sparkles
of wet logs
I collected
from the inside of me
that I dared
to turn to ashes.

    Matches my sense of burning the past!
    When turns to ashes, no past and no passion, only the moment, the joy remain. (Report) Reply
