A poem I wrote today, 14 February 2014...

 I'm not very much into Valentine's Day, as it is a borrowed celebration, not a local one (by "local" in this case I mean genuine Romanian).

Still, I, somehow, hold this date as being an important one, for some personal reasons which don't make the subject of this post.

Anyway, maybe due to this reason, or maybe due to the divine will, this morning I woke up with these verses in my ears. I did not get the chance to entirely refresh myself, and the first 8 verses were already written in my mind. The next four one came soon after, in the same smooth manner.

I must admit that this kind of high level of poetic inspiration did not paid me visits since long time, maybe due to my long, deep, and frequent depressions. In these circumstances, when the muse enters our door she should be treated respectfully. And I also think that it is not just a coincidence the fact that I received these verses today without having to do much effort. So, I wont to write it here, and maybe, in the future, I'll write other poems that I wrote or I will write.

Unfortunately, for my English speaking readers and visitors, this poem is written in Romanian, my own native language. For now, I don't have any English translation/version of it, although I think it would be a good idea. But, as we all know, translating a poem is not that easy, and, as far I'm concerned, I'm not sure yet that I can do it properly. But I keep that in mind for the future.

Till that time, I apologise to my English readers asking them to use the so-hated Google Translate or any other translating tool they like.

The poem is called "Cel-ascuns..." meaning "The-hidden-one...".

Cuvintele îmi pier,
Trăirile îmi seacă
De când auzul tău
Spre mine nu se-apleacă.

Rostește doar o vorbă,
Și gândul va înflori,
Și râul de lumină
Din suflet va țâșni!

Ascultă și vorbește-mi!
Atâta mi-e de ajuns
Ca să ajung la tine,
La tine-cel-ascuns...

I have given his poem as an offering...
