The Stars

brilliant-image-of-stars

The stars are so close to me,

When the living waters mirror them in the waves;

Gold, glass, smoke beads.

 

 Shadowy stars, fire stars,

The seas of the world are turned by itself;

Gold, glass, smoke beads.

 

And drifting waves bring them to the shore,

We ourselves are the flame, ourselves are the stars;

Gold, glass, smoke beads.

Ecaterina Staicu, Stelele
