Vespers Call





I watched the sky,
in Drossopoulou street,
I said, "bye-bye,
spotless we shall meet",
the light was fading,
and the year going,
the myths parading,
finished or on-going.

I felt the chill,
the balcony was cold,
not a big deal,
"it's winter!", I am told,
I went inside,
and pulled the curtains back,
let me decide…
let's wait for the dark.

I went back out,
but the light was gone,
was it about
some chanting to intone,
or me and you
surrounded by dusk?
I wish I knew,
but no one there to ask.

I watched the sky,
Venus was all glowing,
I don’t know why,
but it's like half-knowing,
it is like you,
my vespers' call replying,
and then I knew:
Since you're a star, you're flying!

A neighbour's wish
I heard across the street,
"Happy New Year"',
all the stars were lit,
"Happy New Year",
cheerful I replied,
what I hold dear,
I can never hide.

facing towards East,
the moon all bright,
for New Year's feast,
it's almost full,
reminds me of your smile,
I took it cool,
and watched it for a while.

Thanks for replying
to this vespers call,
I find it trying
for big things and small,
to be withdrawn,
in silence to proceed,
cause you're my own
universal need.
