The Poems


TO BE IN LOVE

… means
waking up before the dawn
Even to become the dawn itself
It means
seeing the most beautiful dream
Even to become that dream itself
It means
After you leave the soft sheets
( they will hold your body print until the night comes)
You would go see yourself in the mirror
Without the usual fear of a woman
And become sure that you are even more beautiful
than yesterday
It means
standing in front of your closet and without hesitation
picking up the most ordinary dress
It means
A fragile redemption and bewilderment escorting you
Everywhere
You go hurriedly on to the street without paying any attention
To the routine advices of your mother
That talks to you from the kitchen window
Being in love
Means
Donating coins of happiness to the occasional transient
Radiating a seductive light
Igniting the jealous flame
Of the nearby colleague
Beingin love
Means
That you feel like the whole world is yours
Without ever asking to possess it.
To be in love.






THE OWL

The owl, perched on an oak
starts his old song
now that the vague sunset is coming
the night brings a fake peace
the night watches with wicked eyes
the night listens with the thief's ears
The old sleepy mountain
Rests there
With a disfigured sky
On top of it's head
The moon in the dark sky
Grieves as it eats itself
This night that embraces anxiety
Dissolved our paths in the darkness
The wild January wind
Waves a torn blanket of clouds
Like a flag after a lost battle.
Hush, don't say a word
Someone is passing by
Or is the barefoot rain dripping
On the foliage
Shhhhhh, quiet!
Someone is passing by
But even if there is someone,
It might be a passenger that's lost his way.
