A light shone and the young man knew himself.
(Verse from Dionysios Solomos’ poem “The Porphyra (shark)”)

Raindrops soak the soil,
the earth smells fermented,
a loaf of bread, manna of existence.
A light shone!

I am the seed!

The sea is moving,
the waves are inflaming,
whiten with lace,
the coasts.
A light shone!

I am the salt!

The chariot of the sun
crosses the firmament.
It brightens, it warms, it gives life.
A light shone!

I am the sun ray!

Nebulae collide
in chaos
stellar dust is formatted
creating matter.
The universe takes shape.
A light shone!

I am the star!

Spirits move without bodies.
They penetrate the matter.
They give life and movement to the amorphous world.
They are the breath of existence.
A light shone!

I am the consciousness!
