On my wings

I will find a way to fly next to you
on my wings
cause I don’t need to be carried away
with the wind
I ‘ll find the sun
and the flowers of love
chasing the past away 
my adventures are written with sun rays on rivers
and old tears are rapids that fall on the rocks
and transform to white birds with wide wings
like mine
I will find a way to fly next to you with my will
my voice will carry you when high
and my heart will be drumming the words I preserved
I kneaded for you with a durable beak
of wildlife
I will find a way to give you my life
on my wings…

***

Up on the hills

the sun is flashing his resorts
Not many see the dancing rays
not many fill their hearts with simple pleasures

we breathe the joy of wealth and peace,
when love is growing
a thousand words cannot describe
the beat that skips a heart

*From “The Rapids Of My River”, 2017 (under press).
