Παναγιώτα (Γιούλα)Ιωάννου ΠατσαλίδουΕστάλη από
To caress me and i come to life
the creation smells sweet, the feast begins.
I dress up in morning in colours light
i worship the trees, the earth, the water.
I kissed the noon and my heart grew wings
it fluttered, it searched for the embrace.
I befriended the dawn and it fell in my two hands
I married life and had three children
I named them love, justice, humanity
and i have happiness as constant companion
and i am not afraid of death nor of pitfalls.
