Ode to Dionysios Solomos by Sofia Kioroglou

His intuizione musicale
totally new in the until then known art
with a language, a map of a terra incognito
of transcendental abstractions and idealistic notions

His ideal was unfettered Greece
the crisis still felt today
the Pandora’s box discovered
many a skeleton uncovers

I recognize you by the fierce edge of your sword
Liberty so sacred and so rare
in an era where ” ethnos” is emotively achromatic
and Solomos ” The Free besieged” an urgent call for an exodus.

  1. I wish I had a gif showing me kowtowing and chanting “we’re not worthy” as in Wayne’s World movie, I believe. Never watched it.
    But we’ll done, Sofia! Excellent Ode.

      1. Wise attitude. My perspective, for myself, is that the poems are not mine but shared through me. Nevertheless, no reason not to smile and enjoy it. Have a great day.
