"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

Empty

elements

and sap from plants and fire in the veins
and water that’s jumping in vain
like melted ice flowing over me
my empty soul in the glass again

si seva din plante si focul din vene
si apa ce sare-n zadar
ca gheata topita se scurg peste mine
am sufletul gol in pahar

Silence


She Still Smiles

n-a-6058_l

Venezuela. Caracas. No electricity. Poverty. Highest murder rates in the world. Tough life.

She is so young. She is raised to be strong. She knows reality.

Yet she still enjoys life and smiles.
