Giorgio Veneto (Athens, Greece)
dance on glass
I know this dance on glass at night
and how directs soul's wounds to string
upon the nimbus raindrops cling
- the broken glass reflection's bright.
And she becomes faint light to frame
her misty wander - face and faith
before the tears - beloved her wraith
pristine and fair, her ancient name.
Lone garden's sadness in her eyes
celestial blue - emerald coast
becomes her verse, solitudes' host
and repercussions that incise.
They gallivant untimely role
(in void's catastrophe stars glare)
soul dances in the scent of air,
evanescent the path of Sol.
They gallivant marginal dreams
and stars become far blinking smiles
how lonesome are the winter isles
and the ship's frozen metal brims!
Descending light - circular flare
that fades away, beyond skylines
- erstwhile her soul shall sail on brines
evanescent celestial stare.
