You are gone and with you I cannot converse
my prayer our only communication channel
This phone call will certainly reach you
My cries no longer heave
I have started to play the piano again
got that pixie cut with long bangs
I know you are well
I can feel you
I see you smile
A special thank you to the editor of Communicators League for publishing my poem today!
Chained to a system
any pleas for disentanglement
would don me the regalia of a
Subsumed under the economic
everything must be ground down
enslaved to the plasma screen TV
the human mind leveraged for
Human existence must stop being
on a system where ethics are
to the augmentation of profit
where humans are masters and
cogs in the economic machine
I am a writer, a poet, a pilgrim, a missionary and a wife! I find writing to be a form of catharsis. My poems are imbued with deep empathy and begging for answers. Sometimes my lines are ovelaid with religious nuances only to provide a compass for my journey in life and jumping -off point for my inspiration. My poetry can be found online and in print.
Spillwords.com presents: The Chaghoura, written by Sofia Kioroglou – I am a writer, a poet, a pilgrim, a missionary and a wife!
Always be a noble man
even on a foundering vessel
stand aside and let the frail fill the life-boats
Accept death calmly
and endure your going
hence even as your coming together
There is nobility in the world,
not everything is darkness
ergo ally yourself with the good.

A Greek surrealist poet whom admittedly most of my fellow poets might have stumbled on is Miltos Sachtouris who is renowned in his native country, Greece. Miltos Sachtouris was born in Athens in 1919. He was seventeen years old when General Metaxas imposed a Fascist dictatorship that lasted until the general’s demise in 1941.By then the Greeks were living under Axis occupation and experiencing war-related famine that led to the death of 100.000 lives. Unfortunately, the end of the second war was rife with ongoing conflicts which flared into a civil war, the ripple effects of which were felt for years, right up to the dictatorship of 1967-74. Sachtouris poetry was bereft of a decorative use of poetic language. He describes things with incredible fidelity. He is not one to interpose psychological descriptions and eschews ideological labeling. His clarity of idea-generating images are endowed with a substantive value. They offer…
