CARESSING MYTHS_cover_Feb10.indd

ΣΙΩΠΗ ΤΩΝ ΧΕΡΙΩΝ

Αντικριστά καθίσαμε
με τα μάτια φτιάξαμε σιωπή
η σιωπή μας λέξεις
που δε ξέραμε τι να τις κάνουμε
αντικριστά μα όχι δίπλα
κοιτάζοντας τα χέρια
που φώναζαν τη βουβή
ανάγκη τους για λέξεις
που χαιδεύουν

Έσκυψες και φίλησες
τη σιωπή των χεριών μου
μίλησε η ματιά με τη βροχή
SILENCE OF HANDS

We sat opposite each other
with our eyes we created silence
our silence words
we didn’t know how to use
opposite not next to each other
seeing our hands
that cried their silent
need for words
that caress

You leaned and kissed
the silence of my hands
my glance talked to the rain
~CARESSING MYTHS, Translated by Manolis Aligizakis, Libros Libertad, Vancouver, BC, 2015
