"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


The Eyes Of Truth


when we will have tried
all the limits of this life
we turn to silence
when we exhaust all the paths
we become quiet and wise

when we have lived all
the pains and sorrows of life
we become stronger
and we look deep inside us
to see through the eyes of truth

This is my entry for the Trifecta Challenge.

The One

I will always be
the one to bring you roses
in the middle of
frostbite and dying winter
when your soul finds no blossom

one day


blood floods the lonely
heart, the blue sea of silence
and the eye closes
on distant sunsets of soul
dreaming of one day of light

Elevating Tanka


sadness in our heart
black shadows all inside us
learn how to silence
the voice of sadness inside
let us elevate our soul

Broken Tanka

keep waiting for you
I have just seen your shadow
in my memory
smoke covers the face of the
last pieces of broken dreams

life flute tanka

life is like a flute
it has ups and downs , holes and
some imperfections
but if you know how to play
it can be a symphony

Seasons of wither


seasons of tears

are expanding in my heart

seasons of darkness

come after the light at dusk

thinking of you I wither



impasse tanka

of all thoughts
road leading
to unknown

de pensees
la route voit

de ganduri
drumul spre

darkest hour

hour in
arms of
lonely night
all stillness

misty dream

drifting in the night
stretching my hand to reach you
trapped in misty dream
I always see your shadow
Phoenix rising from ashes



childhood tanka

childhood flavour is
apple pie and happiness
unspoiled strong scent of
cinnamon and brown sugar
and Heaven in mother’s smile

spring tanka

all molecular
entities are inspired
to expand themselves
spring is a crib to all life
flowers and wildlife are booming


eternal dream tanka

I am
lost in
my dream of
sweet childhood

no fears
and worries
just sun
laughter and

light child
shine upon
my bright face
and my eyes

if this
was a dream
I wish
it could be

memory tanka


past wind
distant chimes
your loving

tanka for your love

you feel

my heartbeat

your love

reaches me

through the light

morning tanka

on the small fountain

little bluebird drinking and

dreaming of his love

morning sun laughing over

blades of grass dressed in pure shine

universal dream tanka

colours of books and

fairy world of reverie

we meet all in the

universal land of dream

connecting to eachother

Postcard tanka

time has passed my love

you, smiling, wetting stamps, and

me, sticking them on

a memory card that was

ment to travel back to us

lingering tanka

I only take time

once a day to think of you

it might not seem much

but it’s twenty four hours

that this moment is lasting.

life and death tanka

death creeps in our veins

from the day when we are born

struggle and fighting

life is just an ilusion

life is made of shuttered dreams.


the most important things

the most important

things a father can do for

his children are to

be caring, attentive and

completely love their mother

Butterfly tanka

Star shine on your wings

gold dust on your tiny feet

adding to your grace

when you take your time to eat

flower dew and nectar drops.

Stay with me always

in this  pure sweet harmony…

Run away sometimes

but always come back to me…

What would I be without thee?


The Burn

Everytime we touch

I feel my fingers burning

everytime you go

I know your heart is bursting

summer sun is upon us.
