As flakes flattered snowy autumn,
wounds of the soul awakened silly,
my mind virtually being so frozen
shattered like crowns of distant feelings.
You walk in my dreams
where pearls grow within,
in the flaming colours of spring
almonds start to break into blossom.
Temples of life catch me,
candles of light help us
walking through the prickly path.
Feel tears sent to heavenwards,
“Lord, be my guard,
my earth and song,
as all the dearness awakens
in the warmth of cozy autumn.”
Walking out of my dream,
I can hardly reach the clouded hills
fog covers my hands, my knees
dawn turns me back into snowy mess,
and sunny lights start to shine
towards the morning coming flights.
I see meadows soaked with blood
of mammals, of hunts,
humans being sinful for us.
Watch! Cliffs ‘re stripped away,
wracked with grief merge clouds above,
deer break the silence
crawling noisily up the sun.
And mountain spring still melting free,
flows down the valley moor,
killing thirst of poor,
Bloody tears fall in drops
being the wounded pearls of earth,
dreams are shattered in small pieces,
visions of glory, view of dawn
blur the sounds of weeping song.
Still the noise of pistols and guns
U stand firmly at bloody part,
buds of roses warming us up
turn into pale, still gets too dark.
blind I stood, helpless I moved
in trembling boats from east to west,
darkness I saw, roses I held
towards the stones I used to load
behind the corners of these clotty roads.
Hands reached clouds above,
hair felt that smell of touch,
bluish, reddish whispers of skin
steered sun away from crush.
And vanished away all the letters
blown at scarlet dawn
with the flawy wind to Lord.
Still horizons near the forest
hear humans confessing secrets of glory:
“If my existence causes violence
I’ll end up someday in silence.”
