Plaukti

Tu ienāci man prātā Kā tādā sētā, pa vārtiņiem, Sarūsējušām eņģēm čīkstot. Nodrebēja zedeņi, satrūkās Putni, mošķuļi pavēra acis — Tu ienāci man prātā — Es — apmaldījos. Tu iekriti man sirdī. Tā, izrādās, bija caurums. Lamatas neapslēptas, Milzu bedre, kur kādreiz bij asfalts, Plakana, pelēka peļķe: Tu iekriti man sirdī — Es — pazaudējos. […]

Sapped

There are words, those heard when the trees stand bare and open to elements, Words for the dark and daring and the roots. Heard from the heard of pedestrians as they stumble in streets, muttered, bitten off by the fall. The trees keep their bark closer as the light fails all over the planet: the […]

Pienenes pūkojas visam pa vidu, Ābeles rōzā, Ieblakus ievas ietinas baltā, Rūgtums un dziesma, Debesu dziļums Atveŗas skrejošām ziedlapām. Dzīvajā zaļumā tauriņš Trausli līčloču plandās; Vien saule Dzen visu uz priekšu un ārā. Caur putekļu kupenām Zemē bez lietus Nāc Saulrietu […]

The unveiling

When Moses had finished speaking with them [the Israelites], he put a veil on his face; but whenever Moses went in before the Lord to speak with him, he would take the veil off, until he came out; and when he came out, and told the Israelites what he had been commanded, the Israelites would see the […]
