The Message


I’m walking on the green meadow,

High on the tallest mountain,

Away from the noisy life

Plunged into the mist of daily routines.

Bathed in the light of Helios,

A cool breeze is caressing my face

And nature’s symphony echoes

All around me,

But why am I feeling as heavy as lead?


I nearly joined Dochia and her sheep

Inside the stone shell of the titan,

When I heard someone calling me.

I look carefully at my surroundings,

But no one shows up

Besides a flame near a tree?

I instinctively take water from the nearest river

And quickly go to save the pillar of nature.

The source of life didn’t get to touch it

Because the voice echoed louder than ever.

Shocked I realized it was the flame talking to me

And the tree thanks me for the water.


At its request, I touched it expecting to cry in pain,

But I feel its holy warmth instead

Melting the chain mail armour of ice

That was created by the venom spat on me by envy’s sisters

Throughout the journey to fulfill my dreams.

I humbly listen to it as the lamp of the soul

Slowly turns on, shining like the sun.

Enveloped in the holy aura, the peace of mind embraces me

And I can hear the inner voice clearer and louder than ever before.

My senses are sharpening, everything that was unknown to me until now,

I can see it with my eagle-eyed heart.

The baggage of knowledge is getting bigger,

Each new piece of information flies to the drawer

That is waiting for it with open arms,

Ready to be projected onto my consciousness when needed.


I happily stretch my phoenix wings

And soar into the sky,

Without forgetting to send His Message

To the hungry burdened souls,

But living a peaceful life wisely.


A Call For Help


You erratic man,

Why are you so indifferent

And don’t give me the respect I deserve?

I love you like you are my own child,

I generously give you what you need:

From my garden I offer you food for the body and soul,

Cures for every type of disease,

Inspiration for your artistic and literary works

Without asking for something in return.

I shelter you from the April showers,

I protect you from dangers like a guardian angel

And I brush your tears after a bad day.

How much do I have to endure

From your greed, pride and evil?

Instead of bathing in your love,

I’m drowning in a rubbish heap.

The fishes wear oil jackets,

The poor animals are chocking on your arrogance,

God’s messengers are coughing and getting lost

In the dense smog of your industrial activities.

Can’t you see that you’re suffering from your recklessness too?

Open the eyes of your heart!

Be responsible for your actions

And let’s live in harmony like the good old days!


Sweet Childhood...


Although you remain a memory

for some of us,

we keep you alive through our inner child.

Heavenly season,

you come every year

inviting us to join the other little ones

in the game in the magic glade,

where the flora whispers the mysteries of nature in our ear

and we understand the language of the fauna.

You advise us to see the world from a different perspective,

reminding us that we learn all our life

regardless of the age indicated by our changing appearance.

You bring a smile on the strict adult’s face,

taking a ray of the sun to light the lamp of his sad soul,

hoping that he will share it with everyone.

You escort us on the pirate ship,

encouraging us to weather Prospero’s storm,

to become wiser throughout the journey like Ulysses.

Attending the picnic organized by you and the old friends

from the years of innocence, exploration and joy,

we feel that the impossible becomes possible.
