Giorgio Venetopoulos

(Athens, Greece)

The feather dances

A feather flies amid the soft draught to fiddle,
in smiling trajectories of blue twiddle,
pilots curves like of a movement random,
like the air traveler to Heavens' stardom.

It moves away form Earth's blurry apparition,
above the roofs it flies on benign cognition
playing along in air-streams of Zephyr,
to flirt with Amadryads odes on lyre.

In splendid glaze, with spirits turmoiling,
- caressing whiffs upon mere earthlings,
where the feather is favored by tailwinds,
when the women dream in their embracing glints.

It streams above the Ocean, with Naiads,
to accord a lullaby, and bluish myriads
of waves to maneuver oscillating along,
the ocean where air whistles a song!

The anabatic flow takes it higher, to bevy,
in clouds where stand the raindrops heavy,
where spirits who remained last, bemoan,
a feather flies amid the tears of souls gone!
