THE FRUITS OF CLOSENESS
On the shores of the sea of our similarities,
the sky lists our returns to reality,
the sand expresses several civilizations of our
return to ourself.
The day squiggles like a fish of our past,
rooted between the two shores of our reexamination.
Yet we take the fruits of closeness
as the nonviolence of the forms of the world which
as the violence of the flower of germinating reality
through the cracks of our breakthrough
into our own body of boldness.
Yes, the body of boldness
to take the fruit of closeness
and in the paradise of our voices Adam and Eve chant,
through a skein of their gaze.
PASSION AND SADNESS
The star draws
A man at the table.
The sun roars like his blood.
The sun signs his hardest thought.
The night parades
in the profile of his longing.
A hard thought of the day
the bending of his grief
over sorrow and passion
of the growing Sun.
Common curtains of the Moon and the Sun
you move towards the laughter of the trees.
The sun anchored me
in its clear thoughts on forests.
The handwriting of my impermanence
spilled over one of your paths.
My hurry paints the Vrdnik tower and
hangs a picture of my elusiveness on her.
Heaven reposes its oaths of day and night,
in the heart of my arrivals and departures ...
