Foreword

When i consider this masterful collaboration of poetry between hülya n. yılmaz and Demetrios Trifiatis, i have to believe. When i speak of believe, i speak of a better world and what may come when we humans not only learn to coexist, but to have a unified vision and begin to take forward steps toward the manifestation of that reality.

I do have a personal affinity for poetry and what it can accomplish. In this book you will have an opportunity to visit upon the commonness of soul regardless of the history that may be. As we all know, when we speak of things of the past, it is all tainted by he who tells the story, ergo His Story. The unfortunate aspect of this premise is that it, the history given the populace often serves to instill and maintain a divide amongst us, the common people. With, and through poetry we have the ability to transcend the sometimes misguided assumptions of man / woman and history alike.

Many of the poems you will have the opportunity to read and thus experience will provide a clear insight into the unadulterated fact that we as humans are more alike than different. In this humble offering of verse, An Aegean Breeze of Peace you will get to witness no only the humility of both hülya and Demetrios, but the lofty yet realistic idealism of two souls from two very diverse histories that are bridging the illusory distance that once existed. I pray you do enjoy this offering of this highly spiritual love and understanding of each author’s separate identity and how they each express a oneness that can only be found when we open our eyes and peek beyond the restraints of being human in a world that is evolving to greater standards.
