Dimitris P. Kraniotis


The direction of events
He seals
The unseen of the lights
He symbolizes

With brushes of the guilty
Of false Presents
Naked bodies
He paints

Wings of winds
Birds of waters
He shapes

Stone cages
Prison cells of the innocent
He tears down

Fields’ ears of wheat
Of empty seasons
He reaps

With ancient wise men’s
Woven ideas
The poet

Always in the end

Builds a new beginning
