The 2River View 22.2 (Winter 2018)

Stella Vinitchi Radulescu

blues (1)

an angel lost its wings
by telling the truth
female or male
couldn't fly
or walk
on layers of light
which wasn’t
nor darkness   soul after soul
begging to let them in
I walk on snow like
on lost dreams           

blues (2)

music from the bones            : sleep
my heart         dream
as if already dead you’re looking
for seasons looking
for spring
water dripping from closed
hands shivering the branches
the tree
a solitary thought pushes
the sky beyond
any words       here
& there
music from the stones
