I'M Like A Mollusc In A Sticky Shell

Poem By Natalia Bakina

I’m like a mollusc in a sticky shell
Endeavouring to find the day
And break out of the inner hell,
Ill tides that fill me with dismay,
Black waters with a filthy smell, -
But all my floods have run astray...

In no-man’s land I’m in the wrong –
Breathing the music sprayed around -
I can not stay where I belong -
It poisons by its eerie sound...
Where are you with your blissful song
To play the splendours that you’ve found?

No want for glutinous sentiment,
I’ve seen my marvel – a moon-lit sky,
My self-indulgence, my testament...
I’ve heard my prayer – a grave-deep cry...
When love forms layers of sediment
All unknown ways are worth a try.

(Moscow,2011)

Primordial noises trembled

Back To The Essentials

You are so true – no truer are the trees
That sacrifice when kindle fire,

When Ambers Glittered Soft And Floating

When ambers glittered soft and floating,
Now dead volcanos were just about to yawn their craters,
Birds learned to fly,
Beasts lost their scales,

To Shinobi

When the sky shields its dim starry eyes,
The night’s kimono is spreading unwrapped

A Man Speaking Birds And Leaves

By my mayhem once he was brought,
A man speaking birds and leaves,

Little Bird

A little bird touches my cheek...
She's a descendant from the peak
