“Jarring disjuncture”by Sofia Kioroglou

As wide asunder from pole to pole
My Eastern and your Western
in jarring disjuncture I am breaking
laying to rest the yawning divide.

East is East and West is West
and never the twain shall meet.
In dissonant chords and yodeling voices
My North I cede to your South.

The ice is cracked open
melting our hemispheres’ differences
into oblivion, engulfed eternally
in an ocean of seamless convergence.

  1. Συγχαρητήρια , Σοφία μου!
    πολύ χαίρομαι για τις διακρίσεις σου.

    Όμορφο ποίημα, με βαθύ περιεχόμενο.
    Οι διαφορές Ανατολής και Δύσης δείχνουν αγεφύρωτες, σαν χάσμα (αν κατάλαβα σωστά το νόημα).

    Καλή και ευλογημένη Σαρακοστή να έχουμε, καλό αγώνα…

    με την αγάπη μο,
    Αλεξία
