Like Harry Fox by Sofia Kioroglou

In Between Hangovers

It takes two to tango
and two to foxtrot
so woo me smoothly
like Harry Fox
but don’t you dare
step on my toe
You know what they say-
two can play at that game

“The great leveler” by Sofia Kioroglou
No shock, no engulfment…
Just the natural corollary to physical birth.
Death is standing on your porch screaming out
and beckoning you to come downstairs.

Unbudgeable and unbribeable.
The eternal, unbiased judge
is holding the Book of Life,
Your name no longer written in it.

The great leveller not paid for favors
is riding triumphantly his chariot
The dead, the great and small
now standing before the Throne.

“How The Sun Curves…” by Sofia Kioroglou

Your One Phone Call

Can you see how the sun curves
west towards the endless sea?
Can you feel the soothing breeze caressing your cheeks?
Keep watching the seagulls skimming along the crests of foam

Try to catch a glimpse of that streak of gold
on the horizon before the sun hides for
another night’s rest and savor the smell of salt
as you lick your lips and swirl it around your palate

The end of the world is not nigh
Look at all these kids cavorting like
the future is now, the future is this moment,
the future is that cry you wiped away after falling

Hello to everyone! I want to offer an opportunity for all writers who follow this blog to share information on their books. It can be very difficult to generate publicity for our writing, so I thought this little effort might help.  All books may be mentioned, and there is no restriction on genre. This include poetry and non-fiction.

If this event is successful, I will do this about once a month.  To participate, simply give your name, your book, information about it, and where to purchase it in the comments section. Then please be willing to reblog and/or tweet this post. The more people that see it, the more publicity we can generate for everyone’s books.

I hope this idea is successful, and I hope many people share information on their books!

Another Plato’s cave- Sofia Kioroglou

Sofia Kioroglou

Another Plato’s cave
where sheeple will find shelter
Another shadow their fear will cast

We keep making excuses for
not living the life of our dreams
but we keep inventing their enemies.

We have nothing to fear but fear itself
the sirens of this world defy
as they will drag you down to hell.

Mary from Magdala -Poem by Sofia Kioroglou

It is this time of year again… Happy Easter everyone! May God bless you and your families. The blog will remain in a state of hiatus for a few days as I will be in Jerusalem for the Easter Holiday! Thank you all for reading and supporting this blog!

Cheers,

Sofia

Sofia Kioroglou

On the Western side of the Sea of Galilee
between Tiberias and Capernaum
the apostle of the apostles was born.

O holy myrrh-bearer, Mary from Magdala
the red egg in your hand Tiberius Caesar’s debacle
would be of “Speak now or Forever rest in Peace”

* The poem is based on the Paschal eggs’ tradition. During a dinner with the emperor Tiberius Caesar, Mary Magdalene was speaking about Christ’s Resurrection. Caesar scoffed at her, saying that a man could rise from the dead no more than the egg in her hand could turn red. Immediately, the egg turned red. Because of this, icons of Mary Magdalene sometimes depict her holding a red egg. Also, this is believed to be an explanation for dyeing eggs red at Pascha.
