"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

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

impasse
of all thoughts
ahead
road leading
to unknown

impasse
de pensees
devant
la route voit
l’inconnu

impas
de ganduri
privesc
drumul spre
nestiut


darkest hour

darkest
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
