Time 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 »


                                        Vorbe 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 / Wedding chant

                        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 countdown

                    The countdown 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 »

Happy Birthday, Romania!

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 »

White noise

                    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

                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

                          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 »
