a piece of sky fell down
into the palms of the lake
but no one noticed
for the wind mixed it up
with the dahlia petals purpur
the linden leafs aurum
and the garden ferns lime
the crime of the artist palette
The autumn, peach,
shadows the fig tree
on my house walls;
Your sun light canvases
the murals of love
in the darkest corners
of my soul .
I inscribed a letter to Him and my wrist got tired,
my eyes got blind and my mouth was full of metal smack...
my life was written on this humble piece of paper
as if it was laid down again, from scratch...
there were verses with mysterious signs
- the ink stains from the creaking goose feather...
and His answer was a confession, remained to me:
"carry these lines like a torch of life,
blessing with fire all the divergent ways people walk..."

cherried fragrant spring
they were reluctant to bloom this season while
it was still frosty cold however
they still did for
they remembered that
they would meet the old friends-bees this year again and
do you remember? I squeezed the cherry juice on your collarbone - heart beats...
do you remember? I was looking for remedy for your insomnia and your uncolored dreams ..
do you remember? our late rides and the silence of the nameless streets ..
do you remember? the sea wave in the night, the wave that drawn us...
do you remember? the sand, the stars falling down and the campfire made out of the moccasin ash ...
do you remember how the guitar string sang and you sang along with it: "my friend in passing by - the road wind..."?
do you remember: lavender, lemon and almonds and the candle shades drawing patterns on the wall..?
do you remember the handwritten letter and the writing slanting with the signature that was in love with you?
do you remember the depth of our glances over the accidental touch of our shoulders and arms?..
I remember ... and by the way ... not a word about it, I keep quiet ...
and then .. not now .. no need ..
in my next life
i will be a trout
with rainbow scales and
pink-feather fins -
to cut the streams of water
and swim against the current
in the glare of the sun,
in the reflections of mica,
kissing the colored stones
with my lips,
eating grass and moths
and it will be one morning
you will return to the creek.
you'll be twisting
a random cigarette
till it touches
and you will say
"how quiet it is here
and how blissful...
i want so much to be
lucky in love .. "
you will look down
at the tiny ripples of the stream
and you will understand (extraordinarily!):
"I look like you,
you, Stream of Water!"
you will think:
"this watercolor pebbles ..
and this rainbow flare -
maybe there is a trout fish
down there... deep down.
I feel so good here
with the coolness of the stream ... "
and i... i will read your thoughts
out from the water
you know, I am silent not because
I can not speak
but simply because
there is a difference between:
"i am loved and
I want it so much (almost r.brautigan to my daughter Masha)
I want to mix all the colors in the world drop by drop - and it will be .. your laughter when you read letters from those who are in love with you, those who are as crazy as you are..
I want everyone to cut the salad the way you do it - like music, barely touching the knife, and so that later it smells of honey ..
I want to voice the world with the flexibility of your fingers when you wash the windows in our house and the day becomes transparent like a mirror in which infinity is visible ..
I want to give tenderness of your eyes to the strict policemen who stop us at the curb to check if we had one or two because we are too happy ..
I want everyone to move like you - like rhapsody in blue, like jazz
I want to paint the sky in strawberry (straw-berry blond) - the color of your hair and write at the crossroads: "no traffic lights - travel safe on blue light",
when I want it so much, it finally turns to be true ...
he said: " I would like to hear your voice... "
do you want to hear my voice?
you know, I think this is a song of silence
do you remember the woman who gets undressed slowly?
my voice is the color of her skin
it is the color of the light of the double flame in that room
it is the taste of her lips
it is the bend in her smile.
there are all the objects with which your room is filled up with:
confusion and chaos of their immobility,
harmony and tranquility of their quiet animation
these are also the items that you can not see
because you believe that you do not see them
because you believe that they do not exist
this is something you can never take with you
this is what connects the forgotten together
it is the smell of darkness and separation by distance and time
it is the end and the beginning, but it is not forever
it is the hot bread on the cold night when you have no one to share your little victory with
this is ice on the hot, dense, honey-like day when you share your loneliness with friends
it is a spray of the sun in the early morning through the open wide window into which summer flies in
this is something that does not belong to you as it does not belong to me
remember? - the rainbow trouts are always silent, so are the wise trees...
your name is like caress of your hot hands
your name is a vicious circle over water
your name is a quiet flight into silence
your name will not open my lips
your name is a soaring autumn leaf
your name is a gun shot up high
your name is a swallow, an elixir of souls
your name is spring in the reflections of the puddles
it is unpredictability of beingness
am I in your name?
red rose, leave me!
I am not worthy of your love.
you and I are so different:
I am in motion, you are in peace.
you - swim in the glare of the sun,
rave about bees and fall into foliage;
me - fly the path of the mountain
turn the wind over the waterfall.
you - bloom your buds, barb with your thorns,
velvet your petals and
gloss your five-shadows-leaves.
me - glade above the words strings,
be an artist's brush
draw the water dance...
leave me, you, red rose!
sound is the key to understanding the words.
the last question is: am I lo-ve?..
I pray to the deity of the body - from its creation,
it is full of the noisy time voices.
life is my last cherished dream -
Calderon* sleeps with the summer song of the beehive...
did all the water pour out
while I watched the universe? ..
there is the golden sun and the daylight ..
after all, there is God
(and sometimes there is none ..)
*Life Is a Dream is a Spanish-language play by Pedro Calderón de la Barca.
by the fireplace
the doors opened wide and with no apparent reason
and finest music suddenly connected the souls of men and women...
the beat joint our hands and shoulders
like the wave of legato sing that combines the jumping notes
the house filled up with the light of an unearthly alphabet...
and more .. with the magic light of your mysterious eyes ..
glare, shadows, sparks and masks .. everything was gone
embodied in a trace of the tune from God itself and the worlds of integrity...
I saw the image: through the minutes in the threads of our sleep
the light of harmony of the soul radiated flowing silence ...
the heart of God beat in unison, above time and lines
and the fire was glowing scarlet like your tender silk scarf ...
this inspiration was so innocent and our dreams were serene ..
you know .. maybe you and I were just in love with the music,
just in love with the music...
the density of sound ~
(to the unfashionable artist)
angel with the wings growing from the heart,
wake me up with the raspberry colored bell,
open up, breathe out and wonder:
there is lava hot, mountain tall and chanting loud.
open up your soul where femininity melts
and blends tenderness with love
where the crown-hands will reach the sky
and the feet-roots will pierce the basalt and the flint,
where life is woven from bindweed shoots,
where the parallel lines converge in a Human
miniature pencil drawings ~
your skin is so light and so transparent
I can see the stars through it...
you and the moon shadow - together
wake me up at night
black velvet - red silk - no -
you leave like a chamomile flower flowing down the river stream
i lay down, look up and page through the summer skies
listening to the earth sphere rotating
i feel the sun color full of apricots
on my eyelashes ...

four paint brush strokes in one
I see a flower among the malachite herbs - it has the face of fire
oh, god tell me I just created it all myself!
similarity of extremes
there is a white cat
she is inseparable from her shadow
of black color
the sky is covered with an amber mist,
the sounds are not audible by the grains of concrete,
there is a smoke colored rose in the glass on your table,
but all you can see is the cherry-colored snow from your window
the sun is rising like turquoise on fire,
like the ocean waves in my wine: coral on blue,
copper on amber, amethyst on terracotta...
this is how you appear in front of my eyes...
is everything said in life and done in art?
would this place remain in void?..

*wings of the tree
gravity pulls down
the jade spheres
honey plums leave the branches
there is a cold stream
and a maple bridge
on the way to you
there are ten thousand
sand grains of jasper
in my palm... cinnamon
burned down my dress
like a red dragon
what a mischievous shrub!
call it a bee hunter
that blossoms jasmine
there is a black bead
on the silver thread
it's a spider in the sky
the mountain moon
is twice as bright
as the earthy one
there is an amber sweetness
in the last sun rays
- the drops of autumn
float down the river
so i'm leaving
my sticky sugary poem
I hunt the bee 🐝
that hunts the flower 🌹
that nurtures honey 🍯
that does not need anyone
as it has everything it needs in life:
collection days in spring.
may be I need honey not the bee?

Cut the Sky / Five Songs for the Future
Dance, video, poetry and song are breathtakingly combined in a major new work from intercultural and interdisciplinary company, Marrugeku. In a burnt landscape a group of climate change refugees faces yet another extreme weather event. Propelled back and forward in time, they revisit conflict with mining companies, the destruction of fauna and the relegation of the marginalised, while contemplating the gift of life and the life-giving force of the sun. Butterflies swarm searching for water; dancers disintegrate into the light. A song is sung, calling for rain. Like climate change itself, Cut the Sky is both local and international – bringing together artists from Europe, Asia, Africa and remote and urban Australia. An ambitious and poignant meditation on humanity’s frailty in the face of our own actions, Cut the Sky showcases Marrugeku’s unique contemporary vision – restless, taut and unwavering.
Bohemian Rhapsody Club and Online Magazine is proudly covering the 6 of July performance ( Nadia Pleshkova ) . Please stay tuned for more details.

Sergei Esenin poetry and music event presented by#RussianPoetrySocietyOfMelbourne ph: 9681-9488
0415 030 211 https://www.facebook.com/events/265375737139392/
Olga Shonina, Glen Eira Town Hall and #RussianLitratureSocietyOfMelbourne#RLSOM is inviting everyone to the program about famous Russian poetSergei Esenin. The details of poet's life, his character weaknesses cover us from the real simplicity of his poetic essence that was projected into his soul like god's blessing from far above. Poet is a unique selected source and his life is something that we will never be able to grasp...
In the program: poetry, presentation, songs and music.
Приглашаю всех на мою программу посвященную Сергею Есенину. У каждого почитателя Есенина конечно же свой образ поэта. Очень часто поэта пытаются представить этаким пьяницей-забулдыгой и мелким хулиганом. Созданию такого образа способствовал и фильм о Есенине с Безруковым к главной роли.
Парадокс в том, что часто нам мешает увидеть реальную высоту души поэта, ощутить его созерцания, откровения, которые нисходили к нему, избранному, слишком подробное знание его жизни земной, бытовой. Подробности его жизни, слабости характера загораживают от нас ту простую истину, что на него изливается по временам нечто высшее, потому что поэт – сосуд избранный. В его жизни есть нечто нам недоступное.
Date: Sunday, May 22 at 0300pm
Address: Glen Eira Town Hall
Phone: 04 15 03 02 11 (due to the popularity of this event please call to order your tickets to avoid any confusing situations at the doors)
