Time is a lot of the things people say that God is.
There is the always preexisting, and having no end. There is the notion of being all powerful—because nothing can stand against time, can it?
And time is, of course, all-healing. Give anything enough time, and everything is taken care of:...Read More »
Luna sangerie, luna insomnie,
luna aroganta, luna nebunie,
far’ de mila ast’ noapte mi-ai trudit pleoapa,
m-ai lovit cu raza-ti ca pe-o luntre apa.
Stralucesti in ochii Timpului hlizind,
ne privesti in leagan, ne privesti murind.
Ai speriat cocorii inlemniti in Toamna.
Te credeam o tandra. Te credeam o Doamna.
Ai tipat la Noapte. Stelele sfiite
s-au ascuns prin...Read More »
Oratie de nunta
Infloriti, flori, infloriti
ca mie nu-mi trebuiti,
ca voi cand imboboceati
mie-atunci imi trebuiati!
Infloriti, flori, infloriti!
Infloriti flori, stati parete
ca eu mi-am iesit din fete!
Plangeti ochi si lacrimati
ca voi sunteti vinovati
ca ce iubiti nu lasati
si ce vedeti nu uitati!
Cat sunt tineri se jucara
doi cu doi nu se luara.
Cat sunt tineri se iubira
doi...Read More »
The last morning of this year. While the rest of the “crowd” still sleeps (holidays!), I enjoy my solitude watching the trees shivering naked in the wind. The soft and cozy armchair comforts me in the kitchen, the only place of the house that allows me to make noise,...Read More »
Joulurauhan julistus / The proclamation of Christmas peace
For sure everywhere in this world people are wishing for peace, for kindness, for good will especially in Christmas time. But the only country I know which really preserved the tradition of “proclaiming the Christmas peace” publically in Christmas Eve, is Finland.
Finnish people...Read More »
S. O. S. Santa Claus!
Ever since we were children we have been waiting for Santa Claus to arrive on Christmas Eve and give us something which usually was our deepest wish. Growing up we have learned that Christmas is all about peace on earth, good will to mankind, light in...Read More »
The autistic land (Sonnet)
I know you hear me, but you answer not.
I beg and scream: “Please, look into my eyes!”.
Yet, silently, you scratch unopened skies.
I wish I’d know your every hidden thought.
I try to hug you, but you pull away,
you clap your hands and rocking back and forth,
you feel your...Read More »
In all the world
there’s nothing like
the sound of falling snow,
the only noise
I’ve ever known
that makes the clocks move slow.
The only sound
that sweeps away
the din of city streets;
and wraps around,
in soft embrace,
‘most everyone it meets.
A sound that’s not
a sound at all,
a quiet, soft and dear,
that comforts all
the sleepy souls
who sit, and...Read More »
A losing hand
Now we gamble on our love.
We shared the feelings equally
and all bets are off.
I open with a fear
you call my fear and raise an anger
so I lose this first round.
Then I bet a memory
you call my bluff
and raise the forgetting
and I lose again.
I bet a question,
you raise the...Read More »
Analfabetilor / You, illiterates
V-am spus ca sunt un om periculos
Si nu mi-ati luat avertismentu-n seama.
V-am spus s-aveti pentru persoana mea
Un plus de-ngrijorare si de teama.
V-am spus ca fac teribil de urât
De sunt calcat putin pe libertate.
V-am spus ca sunt osteanul credincios
Dar care doar cu inamici se bate.
V-am spus sa va...Read More »
