Rotating

Spirals in the air

Yellow beams

Mellow streams

Kaleidoscope of summer

Springtime in the breeze

 

Sunshine’s bloom

Daffodils rising

Grass growing

Soft and sweet

Lips moving as the eyes meet

Remembrance flicker

 

Eagle beak

Touch soft as feather

Sliding panes

Earthen stains

Twinkling in the sky they sway

The reeds in the sun

We bask in the light

Summer suns a safe haven

Winter a shadow

 

Within chronicles

Yesterday’s dreams are waning

Particles of dust

 

Wandering crows meet

Blackened rooftops gain a shade

Crafty black in black

 

Blue ribbons scatter

Red garlands will drag along

Skies a jigsaw frame

 

I gather moonbeams

Pale lilies in the pond glow

Infinite glitter

 

Show me an arrow

I will show you bleeding bows

Harvests are meager

 

Fingers summon years

Tireless practice in the aim

Center of the heart

Haughty mare

 

In riddles I bare

Heart to swear

Hard to tear

Patched through dragons entering lair

A bosom to spare

 

Soul’s delight

Gathers me insight

See the light

In twilight

When lovers breathe through the night

Bodies’ trance in flight

 

June in hay

Summer’s haunting day

Ghost of May

Sudden death

On grounds of convenience lay

Blossoms of your breath

L’essentiel des débats éperdus dans le flou / The essence of debates confounded in the blur

L’essentiel des débats éperdus dans le flou

(Poème écrit en vers Alexandrin sous forme de sonnet occitan. Voir traduction ci-bas ou ici)

10 mars 2017

 

Les expériences passées sur un tréteau reposent

Où la mémoire dessine des rondeurs de l’été

De printemps trépassés par des cœurs qui disposent

Vagues d’amour par Ondine qui ressoude l’étêté

 

Les mémoires effacées émergent des temps moroses

Où la vague serpentine clôt sentiers répétés

Dans les déserts glacés où les malheurs s’exposent

Quand la fée Mélusine en des fers fut jetée

 

Ouvrez grandes les oreilles guidez droit les cœurs las

Il arrive des combats dont vous ignorez tout

Oublié le sommeil dominés entrelacs

 

Nous vivrons des ébats en ultimes rendez-vous

Dans des cœurs rouge vermeil en bordure de lilas

L’essentiel des débats éperdus dans le flou

Amen Hayr Sourp (Amen Holy Father) – Levon Minassian

 

The essence of debates confounded in the blur

(Translation of a poem written in Alexandrin verse in Occitan sonnet form. See original above or here)

10 March 2017

 

The past experiences upon a trestle lay

Where the memory draws all the curves of summer

From the forgotten springs by the hearts which dispose

Waves of love through Ondine who welds the beheaded

 

The erased memories emerge from gloomy times

Where the serpentine wave closes repeated trails

In the frozen deserts where misfortunes unfold

When fairy Melusine in iron chains was thrown

 

Now open wide your ears guide right the weary hearts

Upcoming are battles of which you know nothing

Forgotten the old sleep dominated criss-cross

 

We will live happiness in ultimate meetings

Within vermilion hearts bordering on lilac

The essence of debates confounded in the blur

Tchinares (Slender) – Levon Minassian

I have a nightmare

I have a nightmare

I still feel

Touch of summer breeze

It held me

In rapture

As my heart you then captured

Under spells of fate

 

You and I

Made from the same thread

You spun lies

I spun truth

In between there were tangles

Where we smoothed angles

 

Brief instant

Concentric circles

Lapped at squares

No split hairs

Overcoming all hurdles

Geometries matched

 

You in me

Within dreamtime’s realm

Ecstatic

Lost magic

You the captain at my helm

Guided me to port

 

Safe Haven

Memories of green

I spoke Love

You mistake

We never own what we take

Over the free will

 

I still freeze

I have a nightmare

Where the breeze

Talks to us

Persuades me to let go

I never say no

Conflagration of Senses

The wild at hearts flare

Like masterpiece of summer

Scorching the dried woods

 

The wildfire a blaze

Best pick of the century

A view nonpareil

 

Trophy of brightness

Uninterrupted by rocks

Moss shriveled by sun

 

Flaming pearl jewel

They attempted taming it

Flushing flash of fire

 

Like stone ornament

Of precious roots uncovered

Sparkler’s crystal light

 

No glass contained it

Conflagration of Senses

The infinite heat

I fall through the cracks

I fall through the cracks

In between tiles that shudder

Winter’s ice-clad touch

 

I fall through the cracks

Dropping from the wall’s peelings

That autumn rain cast

 

I fall through the cracks

From one ledge to another

That summer clad beige

I fall through the cracks

Where the light clung to ceilings

White like spring’s jasmine

I fall through the cracks

As the air opens its pores

Sizzling mist around

 

I fall through the cracks

As the skies open their arms

Shedding me sunrays

 

I fall through the cracks

Between needles and clock’s face

As Time slowly dies
