Morning Route

Poem By Kostas Lagos

6: 15 in the morning
not a sun beam yet
In the bus;
I fell asleep
in its sweet warmth
I lost my stop
my destination
My soul screams
"Long time ago
you lost it, fool"

Comments about Morning Route

a great poem! a beautiful piece of misticism in a few words but poetic. asleep in a bus is like the lap of the mother. b beautiful depiction!
It's sad and yet so relevant for many of us. Thank you for sharing your poem!

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
