Wounds” («Πληγές») is Minas Xirogianni new poetry collection. Her poetry is a haunting evocation of a lost paradise She is not try to seduce the reader into thinking this is going to be a benign pastoral or nostalgic poems.. The poem's clean, short lines are like the snow that creates a smooth surface...From the first verses immediately signals that the poetess is taking us on a ride through a world that is more dynamic and unpredictable than what our ordinary vision perceives:
"Κι εγώ,ελεύθερη,
θα σου ψιθυρίζω την αλήθεια μας,
κι εσύ,
για πρώτη φορά,
θα την αποδέχεσαι.”
(“And I free
,I will whisper our truth
and you
,for first time
will agree”)

The descriptions of the different kinds of silence in her poems are pitch-perfect! Mina Xirogianni graps our attention with unusual imagery of the stanzas that includes in her poems, and their tone is somehow too precious.Brilliant work by the hand of Mina Xirogianni.
