The Moment Behind The Line


Is it because of the uncertainty - where further,

or because of the habit

to be live in a limited space

always, there is a line

in front of which we stop.


Is it because of the uncertainty -what then,

or because of the habit

we not to separate from the existing moments,

always, there is a moment

in front of which we stop.


And because of the uncertainty

or by habit,

always, we ask ourselves -

if we cross the line,

will we meet face to face

with the right moment?



Clean Soul


You can breathe, in the middle

between the past and the future,

and long a time

you hesitate for the step

that will save you from the silence

which travels through your thoughts,


and then you start over.


You can scream the silenced words,

in one moment,

to break the lump

which nestled somewhere above the chest.


And whilst memories awoke emotions

you can turn over the words in the poems.


You can do whatever your heart desires,

and that does not obscure your soul,


оnly the soul,

let it stay clean.



Eternal Children


We are not just mercy,

children we are under the sun

which moves us,

the winds of fate brought us here

to leave we traces

in eternity to we remain eternal,

from а moments of the time

we created a constellation,

to illuminate our hope

and through the silence

in which our souls wander,

we opened the gate of love -

to be eternal.
