The angels sometimes
Want to see so much
What is not theirs, and get punished…
The curiosity burns their wings a little
And they get depleted
The angels want sometimes
To be in places where they shouldn’t be,
And their foot hits the ground
Instead of blood – pain oozes from their feet,
And they struggle to go forward,
Sometimes …
The angels want to try the things sometimes,
That don’t belong to them,
And they almost lose themselves,
And the sky oozes from their eyes…
Maybe the angels need to be forgiven
Sometimes ?


I never came to you
with empty hands:
a piece of the sky
was always with me…


If I manage to escape
from the race of the time
that follows me,
I’ll go to gather poems,
where the trees blossom
and wait for me:
(so many poems are there!)
