Yellow Jackets - Σφήκες

Poem By Kostas Lagos

When did we forget to make our own honey?

We turned to yellow jackets without our hive

Πότε άραγε ξεχάσαμε να φτιάχνουμε το μέλι;

Σφήκες καταντήσαμε χωρίς να 'χουμε κυψέλη

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?
