dreams of foregone times

Licurici prin ploaie, 
Pacatele se scurg siroaie,
Racnesc copacii rugaciuni,
In inimi starnesc furtuni...

Monday, May 13, 2013


Sunt cer si pamant,
Despre Tine Doamne cant,
Zbor cu porumbei,
Ma lupt cu zmei!

Tuesday, May 7, 2013


Timpul se saruta cu soarele,
Barcile imbratiseaza apele.
Eu nu-s zambetul ce se stinge la apus,
Nici sufletul ce se lasa distrus!

Thursday, May 2, 2013

high hopes

Am sute de pacate,
Sunt ca o cumplita noapte,
Am prins si pasari in baloane,
Sa zbor spre tine Doamne!
