Syndic No.46 ~ Popi Aroniada

Hope

Written by Popi Aroniada

Translated from the Greek by Katerina Angelaki Rooke

Narrated by Bill Wolak

Greece

. . . the sun-drenched

days of winter

the blind

climb up to the roofs

collect the rays

one by one in their pockets

and only then start

singing

looking

for a virgin mother

to enter her womb

through her eyes

to be reborn

in spring

starting to search

the end of the road

for the coin

they had lost

looking again for . . .
