POETRIES FOR MARCH 2021
WORLD IS TOO BIG AND TOO COLD
In the time of drama,
Politics, media, everybody are arguing.
Nobody is happy.
I just want to express myself.
I want to be creative and productive.
World is too big and it is too cold.
I just want to create my own little shelter,
My own small world.
There I can think, read, write and draw.
Why do you follow media and why do you enjoy the drama?
It is ugly.
Your reality is sad, dark and cynical.
Instead of living and expressing yourself,
You are leading abstract battles.
Why can’t you just be kind?
Why you need to make an abstract theory about the kindness?
I don’t know.
I am looking for beauty around me
And you are searching for negative,
I don’t understand why.
Call me eccentric, call me dreamer, call me weird.
But at least, I am not manipulated like you are.
I am listening to my heart
And you are reading the newspapers.
AN OLD MAN AND HIS HORSE
At the end of village,
Far away from the people,
There was an old man,
Nice, kind and friendly,
But still… Lonely!
His only company was his horse.
He loved that animal so much
And animal loved him.
When old man went to marketplace,
People were telling:
”Look at this weird man! He is talking to horse.”
And old man was saying to horse:
”These people, their minds are too shallow and
Their hearts are blind!
Oh my dear friend,
You may be a horse,
But you are more human than they are.
You are so noble, so protective and you don’t have a pride.”
Old man loved humans, animals and all the living creatures.
How is it possible that man with such a heart is lonely?
Sometimes, during a fresh evenings while sky would be full of stars,
An old man and horse would be sitting next to fire…
Very often, old man would look into the eyes of his friend
”I can see your soul! You are beautiful!”
For many years they have been together.
Everybody thought he is crazy because he is
Talking about God and love.
So he isolated himself.
”I do not find an affection and a kind word from my contemporaries.”
He would often express his sadness to his horse.
”Maybe you don’t understand what I am talking,
But at least you love me.”
So that was all that he had,
God and his horse.
But one day, a horse got sick, and passed away.
”Oh my dear friend,
You were so loyal to me.
Thank you for your service.
Who knows where you are now?
Who knows where is your soul now??
I wish that we can meet again.
Maybe in next life.
Or somewhere in heaven.
I hope next time I will be a horse
And you will be a human,
So that I can return back my service to you!
Oh, my dear friend, I will miss you so much!”
An old man was crying.
His soul was begging for warm word and a hug.
But there was nobody around.
Few days later,
An old man went to marketplace, alone.
He saw one playful boy.
Boy looked so happy and joyful.
There is something divine about the children.
Their hearts are still not poisoned.
An old man reached to his coins and he bought a candy.
He gave a candy to boy.
A boy’s eyes become wider and his smile became bigger,
He thanked him.
Old man smiled back.
Then came a father of this boy.
”Son, don’t talk to this guy,
This is a crazy old man from the village.
Stay away from him.”
Winter was cold.
Probably the coldest one ever.
Cold and long.
But you will say, that is impossible!
Global warming is here
And every winter is warmer and warmer.
You have a point,
You know your facts.
It is true if we are talking
About climate changes and the way it effects environment.
It was warm winter.
But my environment,
My inner world.
That was cold.
There was a raw winter.
Desperately waiting for the first flowers and
First birds to start singing,
Hoping, that with season changes,
My mood will change as well.
Days are longer, warmer
And people are happier.
I am full of excitement
And my energy is endless.
I just want to move and be active.
I want to live,
I want to breathe.
I just want to exist.
I am happy for no reason.
Everything is fine and I have no worry in the world,
Winter was long and cold.
BIG, LONG BLACK MOUSTACHES
There was one man,
He had a big, long black moustaches.
Those moustaches were so dark,
You could see them from miles away.
Even his mom was thinking
That he is ugly.
But there was a one girl,
She was in love with this ugly man.
Her father was ashamed because of that.
”My dear daughter,
There are two hundred young men
Outside standing in the line,
Wanting to marry you!”
”But dad, I love those moustaches.”
Father was devastated.
A princess went on a date with this guy
Who had big, long black moustaches.
Her father send his soldier to follow her.
”Stalk her and see what she is up to!”
Soldier was following the princess.
She met with the guy with dark moustaches.
Soldier was hiding in the bush
And he was observing them.
Princess hugged the man and told him:
”Oh my dear,
I missed you so much!
Last night I had a dream,
You kiss me
And your big, long black moustaches
Started giggling me.
My mouth was full of your moustaches.
And I was so happy!”
Soldier in the bush started puking.
Later, soldier returned to her father.
”Sir, I got bad news,
Your daughter really loves those moustaches
And she will marry him.”
Father was in tears.
”Everybody will laugh at me,
They will make fun of me,
I can see it coming,
So many mean jokes about me,
Of course, behind my back.
Ohh God, my reputation is over!
Soldier, catch that man,
Cut his moustaches
And burn them!”
And soldier did,
He catch him,
Cutted his moustaches
And then he burned them.
Big, long black moustaches
Were gone in ashes.
Mother of this guy was happy:
”Oh my son, my beautiful son,
You have such a pretty face!”
But princess was not so happy.
”What happened to your moustaches?”
”Somebody cut them and burned them.”
”But now I don’t love you anymore!”
Princess run away,
For the rest of her life,
She was celibate.
