Cold intimate

Trilingual text: English, Italian and Romanian

Have you ever had the feeling that
Your body is a bowl and the Self is the goldfish?
That inside you one is silent and the other
speaks, speaks continuously for fear of death?
A kind of intimate cold it radiates, as though the seasons
are definitive closed in you and that the only way out is
the prayer?

Freddo interiore
Hai mai avuto la sensazione che
Il tuo corpo è una boccia e il tuo Sé è il pesce rosso?
Che dentro di te uno tace e l’altro
parla, parla continuamente di paura della morte?
Una sorta di freddo interiore irradia come se le stagioni
sono definitivamente chiusi in te e che l’unica via d’uscita è
la preghiera?

Frig interior
Ai avut vreodată senzația că
trupul tău este un bol iar sinele peștișorul?
Că înăuntrului tău unul tace iar celălalt
vorbește, vorbește continuu din frică de Moarte?
Un soi de frig interior radiază ca și cum anotimpurile
sunt închise în tine definitiv… și că unica breșă de scăpare este
rugăciunea?

  8. The trick is to be like the lotus; grow in water, bloom as a beautiful flower, spread the mild fragrance and yet remain unruffled by the ripples that are created in the water.

    Great post🙂
