Read Poem: Bright Creation, by Constantine Argiropoulos

In the vast universe
a fragile human heart
beats outside exposed
for the first time,
billions of stars
mark the unique moment,
it is so bright
everyone must
shield their eyes,

the umbilical cord
is cut with precision,
a cry emanates to every
corner of human existence,
there are tears
mixed with joy
so much to absorb,

to celebrate
the special occasion
poignant refined music
emanates from
the lips of an artist,
each universal note
feels like a warm caress,

time recedes,

the future is a
dancing silhouette
stark like a skeleton
as full as a
bucket of wet kisses.
