Poezi nga (Hamdi) ErjonMuça   Hëna Ditën Hëna ditën duket si e hutuar, seç bën ca andërra të çuditëshme, kur bota e zhurmëshme është zgjuar; andrron sy hapur urrejtjen që mbledhin kallijtë e misrti që rriten kokëposhtë, herë këndojnë himnet e … Continue reading

portrait of desire / Ade Caparas

Ade Caparas
 
portrait of desire
 
‘i desire what i don’t have, a desire i am not sure what’
 
 
i desire i desire
for something unreachable
everywhere wherever…
my mind gets unhinged.
i talk to the wind
the seas the skies the mountains
they are deaf dumb blind
my steps a waste
what is desire… i know not!
 
 
ahhhh…
it was a sunday,
years back i was then
only six years of age…
the sun was selfish,
his ray of smiles
hardly showed…
a looming shower
it will, perhaps.
 
 
but
 
i will never miss
a sunday church
not that i want to pray
but
just to get a glimpse
of that beautiful woman
always in white dress
with silk scarf
circling her neck.
 
 
wow… she is
an enchanting summer breeze
a lovely moonlight walk
a silhouette of passion
men thirst to kiss her shadow
when she Dances in the rain
they climb on rainbow arcs
and be burnt of her heat
all these, all these… i desire!
 
 
skin to skin they roll
lips entwined they mould
her shadow changes
as she moves
my wandering thoughts
never satisfy
who is she
why is she
i want to be like her.
