Winter Heart

Poem By Kostas Lagos

A stray dog seeks shelter,
as heavy rain falls down

While black clouds are hiding the sun
cold wind blows, freezing the streets

I fear not the wind, the rain, the cold
I only fear the absence of love in my heart

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?
