Dimitris P. Kraniotis
Poems by the Greek Poet Dimitris P. Kraniotis:

Fictitious line

of cigarettes
and mugs
full of coffee,
to the fictitious line
where the eddy
of words
leans against
and nods,
to my silence.


Snow-covered mountains,
ancient monuments,
a north wind that nods to us,
a thought that flows,
images imbued
with hymns of history,
words on signs
with ideals of geometry.


Des montagnes enneiges,
Des monuments antiques,
Un vent du Nord qui
Qui fait baisser la tte,
Une pense qui coule,
Des images imprgnes
Dhymnes et d'histoire,
Des mots sur les enseignes
Avec les idaux dune parfaite gomtrie.

Translated into French by Athanase Vantchev de Thracy


Noiseless wrinkles
on our forehead
the frontiers of history,
shed oblique glances
at Homers verses.
full of guilt
wounded whispers
that became echoes
in lighted caves
of the fools and the innocent.

The end

The savour of fruits
still remains
in my mouth,
but the bitterness of words
demolishes the clouds
and wrings the snow
counting the pebbles.
But you never told me
why you deceived me,
why with pain
and injustice did you desire
to say that the end
always in tears
is cast to flames.

To the dead poet of obscurity

[In honor of the dead unpublished poet]

Well done!
You have won!
You should not feel sorry.
Your unpublished poems
-always remember-
have not been buried,
havent bent
under the strength of time.
Like gold
inside the soil
they remain,
they never melt.
They may be late
but they will be given
to their people
to offer their sweet,
eternal essence.

Rules and visions

Life counts
the rules;
the sunset, their exceptions.
Rain drinks up
the centuries;
spring, our dreams.
The eagle sees
the sunrays
and youth, the visions.

One-word garments

Waves of circumflexes
storms of adverbs,
windmills of verbs,
shells of signs of ellipsis,
on the island of poems
of soul,
of mind,
of thought
one-word garments
you wear
to endure!


A roar of cars
seals the dawn
with short-cut answers,
with unyielding denials
that are repeated
every sunset.

What I ask

A ball of threads
my prayers
Foolish I s
are choked
without you ever
what I ask.

The 'donts' and 'zeros'

The night
that strangled
the endless moments
I had wished
to live,
passed by
without my lighting up
the candle
I had longed to warm up
all the donts' and zeros'.


Fragments of glasses
in the empty room
of the inarticulate whispers,
our limits,
with sores
the caress of our soul.


The fireplace
was eager
to put a fullstop,
in the sentence
where the road
of my dreams
upon the word of happiness
with sparkles
of wet logs
I collected
from the inside of me
that I dared
to turn to ashes.


The cloud struggled
against the sand
underneath the rain
of 'no' and 'yes',
forcefully treading
on the rationale
that obeys
the impasse of 'maybe'.
