A. POETRY

  • OPEN PASSAGE by Anastasia Kafoussi (Athens, 2012)

         A poetic story about  the esoteric quest of man in order to be liberated    from fear and bondage. To search the road of truth and wisdom in order to find spiritual exits from the complete degradation of materialism, determining again the foundation of his existence. Finally, to give battle to find the road to hope, to dream, to have vision again.

 

Τhe Twelve Thoughts of the Journey          

  

  1. There was a time, I had it all.

    Love, truth and light.

  1. Through you, I tasted the kernel

    of red life.

  1. And then…

    Τhe red became a river of hate and anger

    without end…

  1. Battle after battle, bloody ambitions,

    lies and dark roads,

    surrendered in fire and dust.

  1. It’s still dark and cold…

    However, now, I can see the light out

                                               there…

 

  1. I travelled across five thousand years                                                                     of life to find you… 
  2. Marks of wasted lives.

    Skirmishes in the streets of fire.

    Darkness are the shadows of lost souls.

  1. And in the end, I find you again…
  2. Your sweet light, a presence always bright.

    You were close and yet so far…

10. I have only to let the dust vanish      

      to see you again…

11. And yet, this road still seems

                                 unending…

12. The final battle now begins…
