The Glow-Worm Effect

Poem By Igor Balatsky

the glow-worm is
a tiny child of light

having stepped onto it
you'd extinguish the sun
in one of the galaxies

so as dozen of
planets would perish

and the wonder of life
would vanish from their faces

and millions of generations
wouldn't be born

so be careful please
while walking along this planet
that you have come to visit
just for a couple
of hours

A Thousand Rainbows

When I grow old
becoming southern


When I was a boy of seven,
I used to climb apple-trees.

When I was a lad of fifteen,

Bossa Nova

Can you hear
that faraway music?

Are you listening
to song of the wind?

Flight Of Bliss

Never in my life have I felt
such a warmth as inside you.
Never in my life have I tasted
such a sweet honey while kissing


She was young.
And she was a beauty.
But she could not fly at all.
Helpless and lonely she was.

Horizons Of Dreaming

still there's a definite common trait
in the essence of dream and horizon:
no matter how fast I am striving for them
they DO not become closer
