“The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient.

One should lie empty, open, choice-less as a beach – waiting for a gift from the sea.” ~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Winter

Winter

Brutal love, lonely promises in frigid, velvet gowns,
the sun has turned back on you, on me, on hope.
We all weep, conquered by sable tears,
by javelins of fables and rue, asking why?

Why did he end the passion, the blush of pretty garlands,
merrily pirouetting over the ivory beauty of snow?
Who let him lash out at the gift of fantasy and flowers?
What soul, what consciousness he shares?

And as the freezing nights separate us with blizzards,
with lifeless words of unwritten ballads, I see
how every dawn is secretly charged with fake summers,

but no answer is granted, only thorns and wounds,
cleaving the last sensation left into ruins, guarding
silently the crystal tiara of his mistress, lady Winter.

Winter’s spell

Winter’s spell

There is an ill light coming with the sunrise,
scattering bitterness over the mountains,
unwillingly setting the green on flames.
How inevitable is the agony of the sky and
the fall of the leaves reciting ballads!

A loneliness, a despair creeps out,
verifying the dismal perfume of a frozen soil,
striving to recognize the glory of the world.
The ashes of a fire place, the death of sunflowers
how they stab the innocence in every smile!

I pace, madly, crying over my squandered tranquility,
like a moon letting its brightest star depart.
I’m thinking, seduced by the spell of winter,
disabled by the empty waltz of snowflakes,
irrevocably craving the sweet kisses of summer.
