CEASE OF FIRE

Soldiers all over the world
loaded their guns
with April’s wild flowers.
One evening, took their helmets
and threw them in the seas
of the worlds.
And after, they kissed
and hugged like old time friends.
Military camps have closed
their gates for ever.
Out there, children began to play…
POETRY’S MATERIALS

A well – dressed verse
with a red, full of freshness
and fragrance carnation on the lapel
pops out right
in the crown to dance.
Two strophes start a feast
on the white paper.
On top, an underlined title
assigns the intention of the poem.
Rhymes, words, “moments”
are valuable and invaluable
materials for a Poet
to make an emotion,
to pay off a debt
and to defeat a chimera.
IN LOVE

Darkness everywhere.
But you came and it’s gone,
my beloved.

THE GAME OF JOY

To find the pleasure
in everything, everywhere,
to be happy with all the things.
Even an unimportant thing
has something to give you.
If you are overcome with joy,
if you are not in the grip of low feelings,
then you will be always the winner.
Because there are not losers
in the game of joy.
WHEN…

There are moments,
that Poets owe to keep silence:
When birds sing,
rivers flow their water quietly,
sun shines and warms everywhere
and people live in harmony.
And there are times
that Poets own to cry out:
When the sky is getting dark
from smoke of rockets’ and fires’,
sea is darkening from oil
and sea-gulls are dying from pollution.
When sun isn’t warming all the people
and children are unhappy.
When ear spreads panic,
fear and death,
leave behind ruins,
cripples and shuttered devastated dreams.
Then, Poets owe to write.
Making pen a weapon,
a message and a hope.
Till they come again these moments
that Poets owe to keep silence.
