Κοντά σου

Κοντά σου δεν αχούν άγρια οι ανέμοι.
Κοντά σου είναι η γαλήνη και το φως.
Στου νου μας τη χρυσόβεργην ανέμη
ο ρόδινος τυλιέται στοχασμός.

Κοντά σου η σιγαλιά σα γέλιο μοιάζει
που αντιφεγγίζουν μάτια τρυφερά,
κι αν κάποτε μιλάμε, αναφτεριάζει,
πλάι μας κάπου η άνεργη χαρά.

Κοντά σου η θλίψη ανθίζει σα λουλούδι
κι ανύποπτα περνά μέσ’ στη ζωή.
Κοντά σου όλα γλυκά κι όλα σα χνούδι,
σα χάδι, σα δροσούλα, σαν πνοή.

NEAR YOU

Near you the winds don’t blow wild

light and serenity dwell near you

around the golden spinning wheel

of our minds the rosy thought swirls.

 

Near you silence resemble laughter

that reflects in tender glances

and when we talk lazy joy

takes wings next to us.

 

Near you sadness blooms

like a flower and unsuspectedly

passes through life

near you everything becomes soft fluff

a caress, like dew, like a breath.
