Lidia Popa

The Bay of Thoughts in The Isle of Horses 

Turquoise is a deep grassland where seahorses abound. 
The sun is reflected while riding the waves 
created by ships anchored in the bay. 
Not everything is a painted tapestry 
From hands full of color. 
Peace is a blessing that flocks on earth dream about. 
If in the turquoise you are close to God 
Pray that at least the sky turns turquoise, 
For them who have not known 
Serenity and salvation in life. 

Marine paths to the Bay of Ieranto (where Ulysses met the sirens) 

The path of the parchment with lines just written, 
Still wet with ink and words of different languages, 
Written with our bare hands, nameless, when the whole 
He is torn to pieces by forgotten things 
Or strangers, you don't feel at first, 
Unspoken words in this stolen time, 
In and out of all that has been given, 
Where something like a primordial light 
Frenzy excites thought in lost sleep. 

We write about the sin of living a mission, 
A ritual born from the seed of an apple, 
Under the lights of a deep-water jellyfish, 
Where corals are born like poppies 
From the repeated waves of silence, 
Upsetting the atmosphere created 
From a twilight to the end of June, 
Like an ephemeral one night invitation 
Where the shadows cannot touch the dawn 
Through the imponderable capillaries, 
Like a swarm of thrashing butterflies 
Deep in a season.
