Pod de Iluzii by Simona Lazar

Pod de iluzii

Aerul păstrează urmele chriştilor

pe umerii mei de alge
se sprijină fantasme indecente

şerpi totemici
înalţă pod de iluzii
între singurătăţi

Linia Discontinua by Simona Lazar

Linia discontinuă by Simona Lazar

Virgulă rătăcită toamna
e o pauză de respiraţie
între trupurile noastre

ochiul meu caligrafiază
fraze prelungi
peste linia discontinuă
a şoselei

zgribulită pe un afiş
imaginea ta strigă după mine:
“casca de protecţie
te fereşte de accidente!”

Fara Glas by Simona Lazar

Fara Glas by Simona Lazar

Mări lascive / sunete cu gesturi lente
maschează câte un colţ de stâncă
în apele joase
tomuri de sare
se lasă răsfoite de meduze

umbre scormonesc
în coşul cu lenjerie fină
al cuvintelor-curcubeu

printre emoţiile toropite
golfuri înaintează fără glas

From A Distance

From a distance

I wish I could warm your body

With the soothing heat of my breath

And dissipate all your worries

With the softness of open hands

I wish I could show you emotion

With a single, fugitive glance

And capture your lifelong devotion

With the intimacy of my voice

I hope you can still feel my absence

In the warm trace I left on your bed

My form made room for your presence

In our memories you can find our embrace

Claudia Moscovici, from The Painful Poignancy of Desire (2007)

Falling Leaves

Falling leaves

Leaves glittering in the sun

Fall upon me lightly, gently

A fire without warmth;

A life that is already dead.

They wink; they sparkle

Deceptively, as a palette of colors

Cheerfully sprinkles the earth

Only to be trampled upon;

To lose color and wholeness

Leaving no trace except

For the soft, inaudible, whisper

Of leaves decomposing in the night.
