When the mind gasps

between voracious sharks

and everything seems lost,
two mighty wings lift me up,

they take me away

from those greedy mouths of blood,

already ready to bite.

The mouths close again


From above I observe the escaped danger

I fly in the air and see wonders,

I discover new horizons,

beyond the treacherous sea,

peaceful lands where to land

with confidence and hope.

The Rain

I feel the rain

slowly descending,


I count the drops one by one.

They fall on me

rhythmic, slow,

prickly like darts.

I close my eyes slowly,

I think, I listen.

It's a magical dance,

sweet, beneficial.

The swirl of the mind

ceases by magic,

thoughts crowd

at the door and slowly

get free.


In a stormy sea

of senses and restlessness

waves of life

float, reel, collapse

in the ruthless lucidity of reason,




Eternal symbols

of the reasons of the heart.

The storm subsides,

a seagull rises

on the blue water of the sea,

screaming its song to life.
