I had a really beautiful tour wandering around the capitals of European civilization.
I gaze at the grey historical buildings passing in front of me
like a cultural film. Here and there,
melodies of Beethoven and Chopin reach my ears.
There’s something appealing

to the walls of these historical buildings,

with all those old and unforgettable memories engraved on them.
My footsteps in Vienna’s gardens are accompanied by
the symphonies’ echo.

As if time has stopped here…


On a Sunday morning
I make a wish at the Acropolis
changing my way of life for one day.
I see the experienced seller
seeking for a buyer
looking among the old stuff
for memories of the past
Old forgotten objects
spread on the long pedestrian street.
Eras shared
with old scents.
Come here, my friend, I give you your hobby
as long as you come close to my source
The look is constantly searching
flowing along the world of old objects
The body is bending
on various shapes of antiques
taking them to new eras.

For the Sunday bazaar


You still keeping our hope and your  light
In the way to eternity
You give us the power to fight in a peacefully way
You give us the courage and the power
To continue your dream
Throw the hard way to freedom
We promise that we will follow
Your holly steps for better world
Be well and God bless you
Always be surrounded by the flower of peace and

Refers to the legend Mahatma   Gandhi.
