On the Way


To Krystyna Czubówna



a strong dose of

heart-soothing words


After the deep blows of


it was a long way

Sometimes helter-skelter, the wrong


With your



you brought out at night

the amazed car

onto an almost

straight motorway

avoiding the purgatory

You lead luckily


to the gate

of my Heaven



The Warsaw Nikifor


To Mark Krauss

Before he takes

a brush in his hand


the colours are locked away in the dreams


It only takes one step into the blue

and his world awakens


A world of shabby backyards

all of them in the colours of the rainbow...


Warsaw workshops and laundries

People spellbound by clocks


When you do not know

where you go

your life’s charm has faded


The Warsaw Nikifor will give off a spark

in the glint of the sun

he will clothe your face




To Igor Mitoraj


Tender touch

of the master’s hand

breathed life

into the marble stone



The Moonlight*


from its musings...


Will come

with an outstretched wing

the longed for

Restored World
