Calendar of an Invisible April

"Calendar of an Invisible April"
Translation from Greek: Marios Dikaiakos


"The wind was wistling continuously, it was 
getting darker, and that distant voice was 
incessantly reaching my ears : "an entire life".
.
.
"an entire life".
.
.
On the opposite wall, the shadows of the trees were playing cinema" ---------------- "It seems that somewhere people are celebrating; although there are no houses or human beings I can listen to guitars and other laughters which are not nearby Maybe far away, within the ashes of heavens Andromeda, the Bear, or the Virgin.
.
.
I wonder; is loneliness the same, all over the worlds ? " ---------------- "Almond-shaped, elongated eyes, lips; perfumes stemming from a premature sky of great feminine delicacy and fatal drunkeness.
I leant on my side -almost fell- onto the hymns to the Virgin and the cold of spacious gardens.
Prepared for the worst.
"
