THE LEAVES CASCADING
ON THE PLUSH CARPET
REMIND THE HEART OF
LONG LANGUOROUS DAYS,
FILLED WITH LAUGHTER
RESOUNDING FROM JOY,
WRAPPED IN THE FRESH
AIR OF CONTENTMENT.
THE DECK OF THE HOME
NOW BARE AND PEACEFUL,
ALLOWS MEMORIES TO FLOW
BACK GIVING COMFORT.
HEARTS SWELL AS ELDERS
RECOLLECT THE PAST
WITH WORDS OF VIVID COLOR
BRINGING AN AIR OF
SATISFACTION TO FACES
RECALLING A PLEASANT STORY.

Does a person ever choose to admit
it’s extremely difficult to fathom
what is expected of them?
Each day we wake
facing what is anticipated in our life,
during our time here to possibly
make a positive difference.
Do we choose our own desires
or consider the wishes of those
we look to for experienced guidance?
Have we awareness of ourselves
to dismiss an opinion of whom
some perceive us to be?
At what time do we realize
what the lives we live say about us?
How do we view the once gifted dancer,
who teaches because she can no longer perform?
Do we believe the old saying?
“Those who can’t, teach,”
or acknowledge what it requires
to become a valuable instructor?
Are you no longer an artist since your
fingers have been hindered with arthritis?
Have you forgotten the years of singing skills,
now that your throat misses the high notes?
Has a person’s value diminished with their age?
Do they grasp what generations before them warned?
Everlasting FlightEverlasting Flight4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Deep below, a rainbow glistens
She only hesitates a moment
Before she releases her hold
On the rose red stone
Reveling in the rush of falling
The sounds around her fill her ears
Roaring, screaming, crying, pleading
Mixed with her cries of delight
She opens her senses
To the striking fantasy,
The radiant dream
The castle in the sky
She's trembling as the world
Dances across her elated face
And tickles her naked skin
And lifts her gossamer hair
Loving the silence
Of the everlasting flight
She's soaring above the world
Unseen and unheard
Shivering as leaves brush against her
As a bitter frost prickles her
As dust tickles her
As daylight warms her
She is the Wind
Everlasting and always flying

Eu mă joc cu ei în paşi teatrali
Şi tu râzi.
Sar gardul urechi să ne-audă.
Tu încă râzi haotic
Şi eu mă mir.
Îmi tai un deget şi te împroşc cu sânge;
Nu înţelegi, nu vezi, nu simţi...

Eu stau pe Lună de un veac.
Nu pot coborî să te sorb
şi nu pot coborî să te adorm
căci aripile mi-au căzut pe lângă trup
Te-aştept pe Lună de un veac
să vii zburând a zori de zi
învăluit în taină dragă, în blestemul meu.
Să te plouă flori de lut, să-mi răsai în asfinţit
când ar fi pe înserat, în ceasul de parafină
să te-aprinzi ca o lumină
într-un alb, albastru pal, roz, violet şi roşu de chihlimbar.
Peste nori în ora împietrită, în disperarea chinuită
vino, floarea mea de lut!
Oriunde mergi să-ţi cearnă cerul flori,
oriunde aştepţi să-ţi prindă focul hori,
să-ţi crape printre raze, printre tine, lutul
melancoliei tale să-i mângâi descântul.

Always and ForeverYou were the serenity within the chaos of my thoughts,Always and Forever4 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
You were my home in a cruel world,
You were the calm within the storm,
You were the glimpse of light in the darkness,
You were the warmth in the bitter cold,
You were comfort in misery
You were my guiding light when I was too blind,
And my closest companion on the many paths of life,
Always at my side, always at my side.
Time passed by and we grew older,
But your life was not meant for staying with me forever.
You got old and ill, never to be yourself again.
And by laying choice within my hand,
You taught me yet the most painful and final lesson:
Especially with love burning so bright and strong,
To say goodbye, till we meet again in next life,
Is sometimes the most merciful of actions.
And if I truly loved someone to let him go
And be at peace, although it hurts and pains me,
Tearing my heart apart and leaving me in misery,
That is the most purest form of love,
For it is giving instead of taking.
And now, as you left to chase the

Ţi-am dăruit o aripă de cristal
să-ţi fie scut uitării.
Lacrimi înstelând o romanţă bătrână
le-am închis într-un ciob de suflet.
Ne-am fost lumină - rug durerii am fost.
Tăcând am emigrat în emisfera fericirii,
iubind am tălmăcit un Univers.

The light is growing, it solidifies on the branches
Through morning's fire circle
The night's panther squeezes its last heresy.
A bud of light
lights up the stake of aspiration
in all of the sleep's statues
The anger of the paths is searching for me.

not stopping for a meet and greet,
and watched as pieces of my face
fell away in the scorching wind,
paving my pathway
with good intentions
that had once been spread across my features.
I am not the only sinner

DedublareDormi, e mai uşor aşa. Lasă noaptea să-ţi cadă grea pe pleoape şi visează. De azi eşti vrednic să mă cunoşti. Sunt eu, Universul, pustiu îţi bat la uşă ca tu să mă descoperi mai bogat, mai plin de ceea ce ai aşteptat, dar n-ai cunoscut încă; lumea întreagă îţi va fi revelata ţie, bătrân suflet, curat, pur.

Your chest is closed
Like shutters are in winter gloom
From wind, the uninvited guest
And gaze like weathervane
Holds on to home, its gate and fence
Despite turning from east to west
In you there's night
The loving palm that covers all;
You're hiding shadows from the sun
Path to eon
Has no end but you say you're on your way
To hold me when the crowds are gone
I'm not afraid
Of iron grating, doors and locks
As long as I am bound with you
Sandglass may keep
Grains rolling down but time will find
A way to flee and we will too
Under The Murky WatersChildren of the first sinner,Under The Murky Waters4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Dragging his filthy soul at his tail.
He does not dare to look up
Where God's face resides.
Walking the earth; a pack of wild dogs
Scavenging the last pride,
Snatching what is left of mercy.
Down creatures, leeches in the murky waters.
Always on the move to a new pure land,
Hunting down every butterfly wing,
Slaughtering every young green bud.
Children of the massacre, slaves of the cannon
You have your hands down my throat,
Your knife sliding down my spine,
You say: "Keep your smile and greet Humanity"
I swallow the rocks; I wave for my brothers
I fell, I died , they walked over me,

Just because I cannot have what you are receiving, does not make me a lesser person. It only means that my life is taking different turns to yours. Everyone is different and makes different decisions. Just because my choices are different to yours does not mean that you have the right to look down on me.
You may think that my choices have made me bitter. Maybe they have. Time will tell if you are right.
But do not pity me my choices. They are MY choices and mine alone.

I've prepared myself a sketch, clumsily,
on a May willow tree.
Then so many unknown sketches,
on a hawk, on a cloud, on a March rain.
Between number one and number two, my only infinite.
I sometimes sleep beneath the stars on a stack of hay
My apotheosis of thoughts in which I've gathered my maturity
turbid, cold, weird it is if I am haunted by the number one,
if barren solitude I am.
Hopeless helplessness of intuiting Tomorrow's voice
you're disease, you're mistake
and non-existance, you, insipid number one sharp
over-flowing of your perfection.

There's something broken between us
The crystal bridge that bound our shores
It erupted and fell apart
In silence of the holy night
Majestic ice cubes shined so bright
Over the boiling lava stream
That flew on without compromise
Consuming love as it may seem
There's something frozen between us
Poor firmed water melted and cried
Its tacit tears dripped unwitnessed
Until they smothered river cruel
Left unable to find more fuel
For fire; world feels cold and dead
Like torch that forgot it once burned
It's dark, who'll take first step ahead?

Under the violet moon
Blue eyes look black
I hear wings flutter
But they're not my own
Mine seemed a burden
And therefore were removed
Handcuffs of innocence
Were broken loose
Night makes the world sweat
With lust and regret
But I'm not there yet
Though hit by poisonous spears
Roaming with aim
The source to disclaim
Marks mind with side effects
Of delusional bliss
Friends bid farewell
While purple swans cry
Filling corners of life
With rhapsodies of loss
In fern I rest
Grace is granted access
To my deepest incision
Where it unties the knot
