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.

Minas Xirogianni poetry, has an instantly recognizable character

“Την άρνησή σου την έκανα καράβι
που θα με ταξιδεύει στα χρόνια που θα ‘ρθουν.
Κυματάκι της θάλασσας που πάνω του θα χαιδεύομαι
Φωνούλα μέσα μου που τραγουδάει για αθωότητα.
Την άρνησή σου την έκανα στίχους ηχηρούς,
την έκανα στιγμή ολόκληρη γεμάτη από σένα,
ελπίδα ότι μπροστά μου θα σταθείς μια μέρα,
Κι εγώ,
θα σου ψιθυρίζω την αλήθεια μας,
κι εσύ,
για πρώτη φορά,
θα την αποδέχεσαι.”

(“And I
I will whisper our truth
and you,
for first time
will agree”)

What gives these deceptively simple lines so much power? Perhaps it is the immediacy and sincerity of the feelings that the poet shares with us.
