The Star Picker
 
He was lifting me up to heaven,
to the stars,
I, small, he tall,
From the top I looked at the world
I’m small, she’s big …
The darkness was further,
warmer,
The world, the trees and the moon
they swing
at every step.
 
He was lifting me
up to heaven,
to the stars,
I still feel how,
easy,
I was breaking down some stars,
lanterns that lit up
the steps,
fingerprints left,
after
our passage …
 
And now he is lifting me up
in flight, in the sky,
among the stars,
in my dreams,
smiling,
looking at my light ,
even if
I’m here,
He’s there,
somewhere,
in the sky,
among the stars,
icon, living candle,
He, forever,
always
MY FATHER.
 
 
 
FROM DROPS ARE ALL
 
At First – The word…
At First, the Word was
and the Word was enlightened in man,
in flower, in stars, in moon,
in stone fountains and in sea.
The man took the words,
mixed them,
composed them through snowflakes,
in the rain’s drops,
In wind and in scent of leaves,
in Edelweiss, in the North Star,
in soul-mate, in forget-me-not,
in thought from dream,
in a calligrame.
The words began to fly
– a dance
to sky and to sun.
From fear, man has snatched,
he took them away,
hid them in depths
creating new words,
always mutilated
psalms of longing and dreariness,
the word pain,
wounds,
illness and death,
mud, darkness,
words watered in tears of eternal fear.
Gradually the words have faded
in rail stations, in hospitals,
on fronts, wars.
There are memories left
and their shadows
in the hearts, in chants,
in tales, in ballads
– small lanterns,
in flights of butterflies,
lotus petals, child’s glances
thoughts-poems
flower buds, in rays of sunshine…
 
 
 
We are
 
As an uninterrupted dream ever,
as a thought pulsing at the end of the street,
as a truth always worn in the hearts,
like a storm over unbounded plaines,
like a nacklace of stars that surround us,
as a belt of times through spaces,
as a revolt of signs on the celestial vault,
as a fierceness of heroes in their last deeds war ,
like a sun that surrounds us among the clouds,
as the day that arrived before eternity,
We are.
 
We are the rug, the flame, the sparks,
smile, tear, dream,
thoughts, words in delirium, deeds,
beams of sun or moon, zephyr, storm,
castle of shadows, corolla of lights,
rainbow reflected through parallel mirrors,
hidden tunnel in the labyrinth of love,
soul looking for soul-mate,
never found on the Earth,
seeks him in Heaven,
walking the angel hierarchy.
 
We are the pieces of the same puzzle,
we are YOU, ME,
the manifestation of ABSOLUTE through US.
 
 
 
 
Life runs through time, but time has its own time
 
I, you, here, there,
round pirouette, in dance steps, scattering thrills.
In the dream’s breeze, the sigh is the song.
 
Through the scattered leaves of autumn
you listen to the flow of time, from the ancient amphora
sip the song – delicate chrism –
drunk of night shadows, emotion stolen from the stars.
 
By the night shrouded in the spell,
a hand comforting pillow,
a blue butterfly breathing…
 
A solar loneliness sprang up the words,
deeply penetrate into the breath of a common time,
seems to sew us with each other,
in the cardinal points of the heart.
Foggy is everything,
something was lost, there, in the wind.
Nothing moves the pain, like a peaceful lake.
 
Life is flowing through time and time has its own time!
Labyrinth is life, the labyrinth is death,
corridors invaded by other corridors
which go nowhere,
the cloth of life does nothing,
the millenaries themselves live in the deep!
 
The mistress of man is life, her surprises,
slices of almond cake,
sometimes sweet, sometimes bitter.
A paradise we do not see
goes right by
our hands, to the dream of a passion.
 
You know what you’re living right now
depends on occasional encounters? Over the years,
the present moment will, in turn, be a random oblivion.
 
On the wave of the pair of souls, the shadows are angels,
when they are no longer in the matter,
they are looking for other times,
angels waiting quietly for our encounter,
our reunion.
 
Nothing here, just the silence flowing out of the vaults…
 
 
 
The dream
 
A smile always young,
A mystery of the heart,
A vessel that awaits its filling,
A wish unfulfilled
A soul that is waiting
May the unquenchable flame of the heart be.
 
Through the blue night
The reality which I ran through
has a gap,
Even if you cannot catch the lines in the palm of our love,
Even if you cannot catch our footsteps.
 
However, you are free
To search, to come, to come again.
To search, to come, to come again…
 
Translation : Cosmina Simona Mihalca
 
 
 
You… Me
 
We are sliding like two illusions.
Same in thought and never seeing each other.
Crossing the same wave, swimming
in the fields from the dream
and her flames in our face are growing…
 
Beyond the wallow of the canes, beyond the stones,
Only the force of loneliness in the smell of wind and grass…
 
Easy is your name, like the sea.
Everything start with the sea, that wild sea,
calm, but unstoppable in the deep!
A seashore on which the waves
are breaking in thousand of pieces-destiny!
 
I know that if you would hold my hand
you would be happy.
I know that if I saw you, I would cry…
 
You…Me,
might poem floating in a dream,
without knowing how my tear would make you whole,
and the death would smell of willow.
Always too late,
always too early…
 
Translation: Cosmina Simona Mihalca
 
 
 
You…
 
You, yes, you! You are like an ocean,
Wide Ocean, heartbreaking beauty,
Like a spell, into deeper and deeper
Catch me in the storm of emotions, torrent,
With every wave you’re boiling unrest, tornadoes,
Arpeggios crystallized touches
And so eagerly you sip me.
Dancing with the sounds,
A fire reveal,
Fire in us.
A dream in white.
Glances,
Whirlwind,
Burnings,
Delirium,
Chills, snow,
A flapping of wings
And quiet…
Just quiet.
 
Me? Your prisoner.
 
 
 
A story, a state, an emotion, a dream
 
A story can go on
in other places or times too!
A white thought in the delusion of the letters ~
Where are going
our footsteps lost in the fog,
in the plains of immaculate snow?
 
How far away, the silver dance of the flakes on the genes,
a shroud of stories from the breath of the gone souls!
How far away, the angels leave the wings impressions,
how far away, the ice flowers drawn on the windows!
 
The soul is looking for its mate,
not finding it on the ground,
in Heaven, among the angels, he seeks it.
So the words between us, silence and cry,
Will they ever talk again?
 
They are in us, they who are gone, they who are present!
Glows of light from the wormy past glow.
If you’re in someone’s mind
something from you has been transferred there!
In round pearls, all the drops are changed,
in distant memories
the branches of crying shallows swing.
 
Like the dream from a dream, like the eye of the tear,
life is a story, a state, an emotion, a dream!
