39822 - Beside the coats of arms

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

Beside the coats of arms
just in front of the immortal flowers
the marbled gaze of Aphrodite
reminded him of how vulnerable
the emotional dependence is
and for that reason he preferred
Athena of the invisible thought
which created strategy
even if it was inconceivable
to most.
A little higher, the painting of the desert
constituted an opening in the history
of another era
which itself had suffered
the yoke of barbarism
before being liberated
in order to admire the hieroglyphic sky
which was standing upright
or rather vertically
opposite the library.
