Resurrects In Green

Resurrects In Green

written by: Aurora Kastanias


She shies, hides
Delicacy in disguise
Awaits her time,
Nine moons a labour

Through sweltering skies
Vapouring oceans
As we undress,
To crisping brown

Leaves falling
On blankets of white,
Under reversing flakes
Of heaven as we smother

In skins not ours but stolen
To beasts, struggling
With storms until,
From coldness

She silently springs
Resurrects in green,
Melts waters
On prospering soils

A breath, a course,
A cycle a flow, bestows
Upon us fruits ebullience
Colours pervading

Synchronising heart beats
A body humankind,
Revels a feast
At the announcement

Of Persephone freed
Spring’s return.



Happy Easter, Nowruz, Holi, Pesach, Spring…
To all those who have been celebrating life in this last month.

Born from a Greek, British, Ghanaian father and a Persian mother, I grew up in Rome, where my parents fled to during the Iranian Revolution. The passion for the art of writing led me to earn a Baccalaureate in Literature, being ever since influenced by French 17th and 18th century authors.
While studying for my BA in Business Administration, at an American University in Rome, I further got enchanted by 19th century existential authors as well as European ‘absurdism’ and the Theatre of the Absurd.
It was only after my MBA that I started writing more seriously, giving space to my true passions. In recent years I have written two existential novels in Italian. In recent months I have started studing astrophysics and writing poems in english, which finally brings me here.
