I notice through the lattice of the mind, of the soul

Mismatched forms sometimes move spasmodically,

sometimes with a strong willpower

Sunlight diffuses and is trapped in a mixture of suspended dust

Sad faces out of nowhere

Disobedient children playing hide and seek in broken yards

A promise, a sky and a postscript at the door:

Don't look for me,

I don't exist

In fact, I have never been

and if it happens by mistake

it will be a mistake of the moment

But we are not living at the moment?

We don't hope for making things better?

What is hope?

Isn't life aided by the faith, love and wisdom of poetry?

Unbridled thoughts again in the evening ...



Lovely Contemplation


Orthodox times

Unorthodox challenges

Souls groan heavily in well-placed heartless bodies

The roles are well done

After all, they train in the vortex of everyday life

Their collars are collared

Where are you? I can’t see you

I address to you

To conceive the perfection of the cosmic optical illusion

Of the original passion that gave life to the dawn of the universe

Eternal unanswered questions

internal monologue expression

Since the potential interlocutor is still dance on the rope...





I leave in a cloud of air and smoke

Fog and delusion

I leave calmly

Experiences flicker in the dim light

I leave peacefully

Obedient to the sacred goal of eternal life

of  the infinity,

the endless celestial glory

and greatness

The eyes see clearly

They  don't flicker anymore

I dance

and the heart rejoices

the pain is cured

 the calamities are forgotten

 I balance on the lifeless body

My thoughts are with you

Very close to you

Because I am close to you, and I will be

very close

We coexist in space-time


I just crossed to the opposite sidewalk…
