The Printed Word

I swim in the smell
Of printed words,
I swim among the
Bookshelves
flow1_400Of a small bookstore,
I swim in the poetry
Of the world, flowing
Glowing poetical words
In Greek, in English,
Translated words.

I swim
In the secluded
World of poetry
Glistening pure
And bright in quivering
Ponds with shadows
Of overhanging branches
Dancing on still waters,
In the distilled
Essence of the
Earth.

I swim in the depths
Of poetical souls
Through translated
Words and worlds 
Searching for
Beautiful hearts.

I swim in the ugliness
Of this world through
Smog and smoke
And filth and grimy
Streets blood-soaked
Battered evil hearts
Searching for love
True and beautiful,
And eternal wisdom
Etched in luminous
Printed words.
