BUTTERFLIES ARE RETURNED

FALLING POMEGRANATE IN THE YARD

The Poems

BUTTERFLIES ARE RETURNED

Butterflies on cold nights stay in dreams.
At dawn
they cowardly scare
and leave what they harvested.
Do not be surprised that they fly from one flower to another,
they are constantly repatriated.


(Translated by Eva Sylla)


ΟΙ ΠΕΤΑΛΟΥΔΕΣ ΕΠΑΝΑΠΑΤΡΙΖΟΝΤΑΙ

Οι πεταλούδες τις κρύες νύχτες μένουν στα όνειρα.
Το ξημέρωμα
δειλά δειλά σκαρίζουν
κι αφήνουν ό,τι τρύγησαν.
Μην απορείτε που πετούν από το ένα άνθος στο άλλο,
επαναπατρίζονται διαρκώς.





FALLING POMEGRANATE IN THE YARD

Without a branch,
a waste of the tree
loses
an open multi-seeded body
for the sake of the birds.
What enthusiasm for this rot!


(Translated by Eva Sylla)


ΠΕΣΜΕΝΟ ΡΟΔΙ ΣΤΗΝ ΑΥΛΗ

Χωρίς κλαδί
απόβλητο του δέντρου
χάσκει
κορμί ανοιγμένο
πολύσπορο για χάρη των πουλιών.
Τι ενθουσιασμός γι' αυτή τη σήψη!
