Doar atunci…/ Only then

 

“The fact that you got a little happier today doesn’t change the fact
that you also became a little sadder.
Every day you become a little more of both, which means that right now,
at this exact moment, you’re the happiest and the saddest
you’ve ever been in your whole life…
Think about it it. Have you ever been happier than right now,
lying here in the grass? And have you ever been sadder?
It isn’t like that for everyone.
Some people just get happier and happier every day.
And some people just get sadder and sadder.
And some people, like you, get both.
And what about you, are you the happiest and the saddest right now that you’ve ever been?
Of course I am.
Why?
Because nothing makes me happier and nothing makes me sadder than you.”
― Nicole Krauss, The History of Love

 

Dacă steaua din tine se mai face-auzită,
simțită și înțeleasă,
Atunci, doar atunci îți scapără inima
și-ți poți face lumea
mireasă

Numai atunci zâmbetul lunii
îți este și ție icoană,
Iar razele soarelui lucindu-ți a vreme
urzesc din fierbinte,
coroană

 

If the star within us can still make itself heard,
still felt and still keeping stride,
Then, only then our heart beats like magic,
turning the world
in a bride

And then, only then the smile of the moon
is ours too, beyond frown.
And sun rays sublime shining like sacred
can weave from deep warmth,
purple crown

Poșeta din flori…/ The purse made of flowers

 

“I sleep with my feet on moss carpets,
my branches in the cotton of the clouds.”
― Anaïs Nin, Under a Glass Bell

 

Poșeta din flori
(versuri scrise și postate în martie 2015)

 

ar vrea să aibă o poșetă din flori…
împletită din verde și multe culori,
din tulpini moi și dure și din flori mătăsoase
să o poarte mereu, cu mișcări grațioase,
și din ea să răsară frunze fine și muguri,
să se-ntindă usor peste barete din ruguri,
cu buzunare pufoase ca din mușchi catifea-
o poșetă c-un strop de grădina în ea

și ar fi minunat de-ar avea aranjată
cu frunze și flori, o pălărie asortată
și-o eșarfă ușoară în culori pastelate,
în adiere de vânt fluturându-i la spate…

cu  poșeta din flori si culori și parfum
s-ar simți ca acasă oriunde pe drum…

 

The purse made of flowers
(originally written and posted in Romanian in March 2015)

 

she wishes she had a purse made of flowers…
simply braided of green like long days made of hours,
intertwined of thin stems with soft petals of lace
to be able to wear it with much fondness and grace,
and from it to appear lovely leaves and small sprouts,
which would grow over straps like cane-fruit in breakouts,
with small pockets so puffy, from moss like green velvet-
a dream bag like a garden, never ever to shelve it

and it would be so splendid if she found on a branch
among leafy green twigs, a straw hat just to match,
and a soft scarf like air, in serene pastel colors
fluttering in the breeze like the rainbows of summer…

with a cute purse like that, made of fragrance and flow
she would feel like at home anywhere she might go…

Translating it also reminded me of this song,
