Our dreams  a beardless youth.
Our words are sharp blades.
Our thoughts  a crossroads of dangerous transit
And while protest banners are erected everywhere
syllables are aligned to interpret our ideograms.
Birds accompany our trip
incompatible, passersby
but peaceful and hopeful.


Luce *

The moons adorn your balcony tonight
are your beacons.
When lost from your field of vision
they will be there and let them not bother you
you will feel their lava cooling down your body
the divine light caressing your fingertips
secretly revealed to the elite
who will turn it into poetry
and they will baptize it in the font of the universal


Staring at the blue sky
I watch you and the time stand still.
The horizon is spreads and lost
like our words that remained inexpressible
I hug you ... freezing soul scraps
like the keys we buried
in the paradise of the lost Aeolian land!
