Blaze of torches dimming the stars,

and the light fell upon his dazzled eyes.

 

The nasty smell of the Minotaur’s blood

came out from that darkened labyrinth,

 

and he abruptly sobbed his heart out!

On a dull November morning

the tectonic plates

violently collided, causing

 

an earthquake in the Land

 of Immigrants. And since then,

the Land of Immigrants

 

was forever misplaced. That earthquake

as it was expected,

 

 

drove snakes out of their nests,

and there, appeared the

most notorious of all serpents.

 

But, the serpent was unloved

 from the masses, and thus,

doomed from the start!

Chimera

In the name of pseudo-science

their cells were violently extracted

from their bodies.

 

Their eggs have been secretively raped

by human sperm.

 

And

animal embryos

were now mixed

with 

human cells!

 

Their whole world was shaken;

their DNA was stolen,

manipulated, tortured,

ravaged!

 

Nonhuman species still suffer

in silence,

and ‘THEY’ call this,

remarkable!

Anhedonia

A fallen prey to an absent lover.

Enlightened individuals seek for the truth

and knowledge.

Flying fish do exist!

And yet the truth fails.

Thoughtful clouds float

in his mind.

A strained smile, but,

the same warmth comes

always from his eyes.

The Arctic fox

#SaveTheArctic

 

Lit by the first light of dawn,

and the little Arctic fox looked

 

like ghost in that pink early morning.

 

An apparition that hopped back

from the brink of extinction!

 

And as the blue light of dark

crept in and the full moon

 

rose, the Arctic fox disappeared

into the darkness of that brilliant

white snow!

She wandered on the labyrinthine

streets of her mind,

keeping as always a stiff upper lip

attitude the whole time!

Vociferous

Secret or open wars

at the stroke of a pen!

High cheek-bones laugh

like the masks of the ancients,

on one side!

Here comes Chaos from

the land of Greece



from whom Erebus 

and Nyx were born. 

 

And darkness settled in at

the kingdom of the underworld.

 

A mythical land of eternal 

nothingness where shadowy figures

 

remained untouched by Helios. 

And a veil of black mist was hiding

 

that Elysian, celestial blue. 

 

Chaos was surrounding the Earth 

with such genteelness. It even 

 

embraced her with an invisible cloak. 

And set upon her a mysterious fog 

 

as to protect her from Daimones 

and mortals. 

 

Then the Mother of land animals, 

and the Mother of the Sea world 

 

gathered in order to redefine Chaos.

They called it: Τhe Mother of Aves!

 

And since then, the space between Heaven 

and Earth was filled by Chaos's new 

 

offsprings: The birds!

Little sparrow

Poor, fragile, little sparrow,

behind a window shyly stared,

and was hit by a love arrow.
