poetry, where does it come from ?

it comes from the abyss

from the nights without light

from the desperate sun and the native canvas

where the soul paints and writes about its fevers…


poetry is the divine word

born form the sea and the storm made of thorns

from the crazy flowers – crafty and in love

from the drunk and sweet kiss

beyond a modest chill


it comes from there

from the ancient conversation

which lulls a good rest

it comes from the traveler –

vagabond migrant

that serene and exalted restlessness

that fire on the edge of the cup

a fierce explosion is poetry




                                   “Poetry” originally written in Spanish,

                                    Spanish version is lost somewhere…












shi, ta yuan zi yu he fang?


ta yuan zi yu you leng de shen yuan.


ta yuan zi yu wu guang de ye wan,


ta yuan zi yu jue wang fen shi de lie yang he yuan shi de hua bu.


yong ling hun po mo hui bi, miao hui wu jin de re lie chi kuang.

ta men bao fa cheng le wo xin zhong de shi.
