Naughtily Thrown


You God,

sculpted your work

With an anvil and a hammer

To make us strong, to give us a solid thought

and to cover the nakedness of our soul

With your innocent spiritual garment

But ignorant of your words and deeds

we have moved away from the original,

the first cause that leads

and contributes to the "exaltation of the soul"

and transforms into "Anima mundi" ,

that unites us, concerns us, motivates us

Slippery arguments in a dumb homeland ...


Holy Lamentation- PIETA


The heavy and embarrassed look

imprisons the sadness of the moment

The mourning of life

The Holy Virginity captivates and invites

The inanimate Divine Body completely surrendered

looks eternally youthful

perpetually moving

The pain of the soul overflows

and the Heavenly Kingdom receives

the only truth

crowning with glory our passions and fears…


Dual Existence


Lord of exhortations

Of hope

Of persuasions

Of wishes

Lord of the Powers

Of universal worldviews


As human nature

He taught our lives emotionally

Light up our inaccessible path

changed our short-sighted look


As a Godman

Scatter our malicious thoughts,

The mental humiliation

of our perishable texture

Be our fair judge

Bless us with Your great compassion…
