Poet In Hot Field


Frightened and in fear

that the world is rushing in terrible darkness,

He walked through a beautiful field.

With a prayer to make us better.


And he came across a hot field

to the sunflower that adorns it,

ah, strong rays get the will

It was illuminated by floral hair.


The poet thinks he deserved it

To the beauty of / such ore.

Sunflower tells him:

  Let people read the song!

Looking For A Humanity


If you look for a humanity in one cherry

it will be in its currency

and the thought of a varnish smiling,

that makes everyone happy, provides whites.


If you look for a humanity in a dog

you will find it in its fidelity and hart important,

and in that a fight for justice

and chivalry, especially strong.


If you look for a humanity in a crust of bread

you will find it in a sigh in half a century

and in that scent of hope that melts

with a hand that gives and waits.


If you look for a humanity in one horse

you will find it in that mane

and a strong body that does not lеаve

to show you all the modesty of the world.


Only if you look for a humanity in a man

it's not known if it is there at all,

whether it is somewhere far away

from himself, hidden maybe now for all.

I'm Waking Up


I will crucify myself for a million debts

who paint themselves with bright colors,

let sorrow go into oblivion.

Let this heart of mine beat freely.


I will crucify myself in cold water

which in a beautiful stream is in the woods alone,

let happiness be born in me

from that beautiful water that casts spells.


I will fall apart in the blue sky

which never, never gives rains,

let me be a star that radiates glory,

let the warmth of blue breathe in me.


I will crucify myself on the green canopy

which creates a sweet home for the old trunk,

let me play playful in a green costume,

just to make my heart beat in nice bloom.
