Our lives are tied to the umbilical cord of others,
to the miracle of being,
the shadow of history,
the unexpected value,
the lost glory
Concatenated strings are joined together
with our silent, the frightened souls,
victims of the dream
And the protagonist of our scenario
walks on a thin and stretched rope
trying to keep the balance
between the past,
our present and our hopeful future ...


If  dream lives in reality
The depth in essence
The glamour in history
The miracle in the artistic regeneration
You are the echo of my voice
The glow of my eyes
The full moon of August
The precious amber
The revival of youth
The old, expensive wine
The rare golden veil flowing myrrh ...

Dedicated to my twin sister,  the noble companion of my life


Summer smell love, passion
Stormy weather watering with tears
the unprotected foliage
of the stubborn trunks
The night caress the darkness
with the white mantle of purity
I feel, I live, I love, I am nostalgic ...
