Scarecrow - Σκιάχτρο

Poem By Kostas Lagos

Make no mistake dear passerby

It isn't Deaththat laughs like a raven

upon the scarecrow of your existence

It's Life that slipped away while you

were making theories about living



Μην μπερδεύεσαι περαστικέ αγαπητέ

Δεν ειν' ο Θάνατος που σαν κόρακας γελά

πάνω από το σκιάχτρο της ύπαρξής σου

Ειν' η Ζωή που ξεγλίστρησε την ώρα

που θεωρίες έφτιαχνες για το πως να ζεις

It's Life that slipped away while you were making theories about living.. it is so true our discussions and phlosophizing does not serve any purpose. live, work hard. love and do everything for love. then you live. wonderful thought. tony

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?

The sun melts the snow

revealing the barren earth
