"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Did you smile today?


Strong feelings
Essences of lavender and lilies
Are spread over your body
Kept hostage by your ivory skin
In pulsating moments
Small drops fallen from
Bottles of delight


Luna Amara – Rosu Aprins / The Bitter Moon – Burning Red

“N-ai cum sa lasi cum sa uiti / You can’t leave, you can’t forget
Totul in noapte / Everything in the night
Oricat ti-ar parea de usor / No matter how easy it may seem
Stinge o stea – si ramai pe sub pleoape / Burn out a star – and remain under the eyelids
Stinge si luna amara cu un nor / Also burn out the bitter moon with a cloud

Rosu aprins – coloreaza-mi tacerea / Bright red – colour my silence
Rosu aprins – pe un suras ce s-a stins / Burning red – on a smile that has died
Rosu aprins – sa-mi ascunda durerea / Burning red – to cover my pain
In noapte ma pierd – cu noaptea te iert / in the night I lose myself – with the night I forgive you

Te ascund intre coaste ce dor / I hide you between hurting ribs
Cu luna amara / With the bitter moon
Cand tot ce-mi doresc e rosu aprins / When everything I long for is burning red
Nu vreau sa te pierd in lumea de-afara / I don’t want to lose you in the outside world
Ramai neschimbata – rosu nestins! / Remain unchanged – unextinguished red!”

Cookie of the day

I am always thrilled when I see each one of you stopping by to read, think, feel, comment, criticize… That was the idea… It is not me important here, it is YOU. And if YOU find something helpful in my corner I am happy. I am grateful to share this space with you.

This is my way of thanking each and every one of you. It is not a gift for your tangue, but for your soul. Enjoy it and have a nice day. 🙂
