2 poems by Eva Petropoulou Lianou

Eva Petropoulou Lianou


So expensive
We buy so many weapons
To maintain it

If we pray more
If we were kind to each other

We could say
We have Peace of mind
Poetic heart
Call for meditation
Inside our heart

We say a lot
We make nothing

Such as a woman
We adore her 
But few can approach

A value with no cost
If the humans could understand that word...

I wish one day....

Wishing to be a star

I could be a wish
No importance if I was big or small star
My wish it depends on the person that make it
Asking for peace and happiness
Wishing be a cloud
A grey or a white
I could express the feelings of people who cannot speak
Rain day if they are sad
Sun day if they are happy

Wishing to be a star

Darcie Friesen Hossack is a graduate of the Humber School for Writers. Her short story collection, Mennonites Don’t Dance, was a runner-up for the Danuta Gleed Award, shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers Prize and the Ontario Library Association's Forest of Reading Evergreen Award for Adult Fiction. Citing irreverence, the book was banned by the LaCrete Public Library in Northern Alberta. Having mentored with Giller finalists Sandra Birdsell (The Russlander) and Gail Anderson Dargatz (Spawning Grounds, The Cure for Death by Lightening), Darcie is now completing her first novel where, for a family with a Seventh-day Adventist father and a Mennonite mother, the End Times are just around the corner. Darcie is also a four time judge of the Whistler Independent Book Awards, and a career food writer. She lives in Northern Alberta, Canada, with her husband, international award-winning chef, Dean Hossack.
