Whisper

How can you talk to people about God
When you don't hear His voice in the cicadas' singing?
How can you immerse yourself in ongoing prayer
When the melody of crickets doesn't bring you in katanyxis?
How can you leave the world's worries
When you don't envy a snakeskin?
How can you teach about humility and simplicity
When the life of the sparrow seems so strange to you?
Listen to God as He whispers
And stop shouting to others about Him.

    Water Whispering

    hearing the soft sound of water whispering
    a mountain creek summer day bubbling
    the sound of flutter autumn leaves falling

    Hearing Sounds In Nature Calling

    hearing soft sound flowing water whispering
    hearing mountain creek summer day bubbling
    hearing sound trees flame autumn leaves falling

    hearing so easily diverse sounds in nature calling
    hearing munching sound a ravenous caterpillar eating
    hearing movement sound a bug on bark creeping

    hearing wing sound a bird overheard sky flying
    hearing party sound birds happy in branches chirping
    hearing wind sound fresh breeze freedom calling

    Hear God In Nature Singing Shed The Snakeskin

    it is so easy to hear, the vibrant sound of God, in rapture nature
    much harder, to listen to the exploitation sound, of snakeskin humanity
    ruthless materialism, rapes earth resources, exterminates ripe life

    'When you don't hear His voice in the cicadas' singing? '

    hearing the soft sound of water whispering, a mountain creek summer day bubbling, the sound of leaves falling; it is so easy to hear the sound of God in nature, much harder to listen to the sound of materialism humanity

    Αυτό το φιλοσοφικό και πεπειραμένο ποίημα μας λέει με ποιητικό τόνο, μια ελκυστική γλώσσα και μια όμορφη τεχνική, πώς μπορούμε να διαπραγματευτούμε τον εαυτό μας και να επιτύχουμε συμφιλίωση ειρηνικά με αυτό, όταν καταλαβαίνουμε τα δεινά των άλλων και ακούμε τα στεγανά τους, τότε θα Γνωρίστε τον Θεό και θα είμαστε αξιόπιστοι αν το πούμε αυτό, καλοδουλεμένο αγαπητό μου φίλο Κώστα για αυτήν την όμορφη ποίηση και πηγαίνει στη λίστα αγαπημένων μου με ένα μεγάλο 10/10

    This philosophical and knowledgeable poem tells us in a poetic tone, an attractive language and a beautiful technique, how to get to negotiate ourselves and reaching reconciliation in peace with it, when we understand the suffering of others and listen to their groans, then we will know God and we will be trustful if we say so, well done my dear friend Kostas for this beautiful poetry and it goes on to my favorite list with a big 10 / 10

    The art of listening is a sense very overlooked. I enjoyed this.

    This is a very good poem. The contrasts and paradoxes of the poem say it all.
    I enjoyed reading it.

    The truths in the lines of your poem are most evident to me. All creation is the work of God, and not just human beings, and all that He has created is a marvel and a wonder. Thanks for sharing this beautiful poem.
