Midnight - Μεσάνυχτα

Poem By Kostas Lagos

The clock strikes midnight

As it usually does

No one's left to hear

Όπως συνήθως

Σήμανε μεσάνυχτα

Ποιος ν' ακούσει πια;

Comments about Midnight - Μεσάνυχτα

Death has taken its toll......! At this rate, we have to fear if there will be anybody left on earth to hear the strike of the midnight hour! An indication of what is going to happen in future!

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?

The Sun Melts The Snow (Tanka)

The sun melts the snow

revealing the barren earth

A priest who doesn't want to chant

A spider denying its web to spin

Dear Reader - Αγαπητέ Αναγνώστη

Dear reader, you will find no poems or songs here

Only the jeremiad of a soul whose downfall is near

Scarecrow - Σκιάχτρο

Make no mistake dear passerby

It isn't Deaththat laughs like a raven
