Selected poems by Theodora Koufopoulou – Heliopoulou:

 

 

           TALISMAN

        

                            And if you caress

doesn’t wipe my tear.

And if your kiss

doesn’t cure my wounds.

And if you are absent

from my joy,

you are my comfort

in my sadness.

Your image in light

is pilgrimage and my talisman,

Mother.

The cloudy weather 

can’t fade the Sun.

 

 

BEAMS OF LIGHT

 

We are beams of light.

Come to be

the huge Sun

of Humanity.

All of us,

we are accountable

for  its beauty.

 

 

         PEACES CALL

 

Plains are thirsty for water.

War  is thirsty

for human souls.

 

And the Earth is thirsty

for you, PEACE.

 

In our call

don’t say “NO”.

We ’ll  spread palm leaves

when you’ll come.

 

It’s necessary to come, my far-shining.

 

 

TIMELESS

 

Wash your “ego”.

Dress yourself the magnificence.

Be the joy of the bitter,

the support of the helpless.

Lash out the unjust.

Let a child beat you.

Stay yourself a child.

 

So, you beat the wear.

 

 

    YOUR SCENT

 

The house filled

with your absence.

Flooded is the thought.

 

And the Poet spread

petals of rose

on the paper.

 

Immortal to remain

your scent.

 

Theodora Koufopoulou – Heliopoulou

     Agia Kyriaki,  Rafina, Attica
