Don’t Read Me!


I am a tale, sleeping in winter dreams,

Don’t awake my strange dreams!

I am a violet smelling sorrow,

I beg you, don’t smell it too much!


My luck fell from a rock,

Its blood splashed on the stones.

Tears have been gathered in my eyes,

Don’t touch me! Don’t touch me!


The base of the life was knocked down,

My grave has been dug nor far from it

I am a book, on pages of which grief is written

Don’t read me! Don’t read me!



I Want A Lifetime 


I want a love,

Like the love of the children

To the children

And to the birds.


I want to hear a pleasant word,

Like the whisper of south-west wind

To the petals of the flowers.


I want a lifetime

Like the lifetime of a good poem.

I want a death

Like the death of a poet.




The Picture Of The Silence


The birds remained hanging in the water

And the fishes in the water,

Early in the morning

Horizon passed away here.

The trees have become dry

Bending their top

In the place

Where the wind drove them out.

An autumn flower blossomed,

The slopes have become touched.

The clouds are hanging heavily

Towards the earth.

The color of the silent water in the sea

Has become turbid.

The surface of the sun is gloomy

The shoulders of the soil are tired.

The life is in its eternal silence

With its dumb scenes.

I wonder how the world seems oddly

In its coffin made of glass.
