sailing the desert

my love lost in another world, the desert sends you endless waves of sand
in the cold night when you sail from shore to shore asking
mermaids and bards and lonely women and shamans and the fata morgana
for the absolute beauty and the golden wool

universe
seeds of whispers get born on my silent lips as I try to get you out of the corners
of this universe, me undressed of day dreaming, you covered in dreams
that cannot get real because you don’t set them free while you linger too long
in the chaotic nightmare hammered in screaming ancient walls

waters
the springs of my soul search for the sky in your never seen eyes
so that the day when you’ll find your way back to me
you won’t step on the blaze of our burning hearts
while you’ll break my life in two with a kiss

Bluest Blues

memyselfandela

moon1

I throw words to the sky

ash gray

wasted in the cries of silence

deep

and alone with thoughts in night

blue

so lost and empty

in your eyes

——————————-

Arunc cuvinte spre cer

cenusiu

risipite in strigate de tacere

adanca

si singur cu ganduri in noapte

albastra

atat de pierdut si pustiu

in ochii tai

The Trees, Eugenio Montejo

“The earth turned to bring us closer,
it spun on itself and within us,
and finally joined us together in this dream
as written in the Symposium.
Nights passed by, snowfalls and solstices;
time passed in minutes and millennia.
An ox cart that was on its way to Nineveh
arrived in Nebraska.
A rooster was singing some distance from the world,
in one of the thousand pre-lives of our fathers.
The earth was spinning with its music carrying us on board;
it didn’t stop turning a single moment
as if so much love, so much that’s miraculous
was only an adagio written long ago
in the Symposium’s score.”

Cherubic

Even if this life of mine would be doomed

And I would be condemned to grow devil’s claws

I would still fight to use them to scratch

Cherubic poems on my prison walls.
