Poem By Kostas Lagos

To the south and to the north

I wondered, searching

My feet

full of wounds, but

that lightning

I never found

It is gone, gone

in a remote

place of time

left alone crying

Σε νότο και βορρά

ταξίδεψα, αναζητώντας.

Τα πόδια μου

γέμισαν πληγές, μα

εκείνη την αστραπή

ποτέ δε βρήκα

Χάθηκε, χάθηκε

σε κάποια απόμερη

γωνιά του χρόνου

απέμεινε να κλαίει.

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

Make no mistake dear passerby
