“Let them do their thing. We will do ours.”

A drunk man is a man who has abandoned his way. This is drunkenness. Music to go for this writing “Let them do their thing. We will do ours.” This is what a bard told me, while we observed the actions of a group of people. Just like me, he had seen falseness more commonly known as “the pointless way”. I translated a poetry book for him, as well as some of my poetry. Just like that. I didn’t need anything. Then he looked at me, so very seriously and said: “So, I think you didn’t just write those […]

Poetry In The Ancient City Of Plovdiv & Creative Souls

Poetry In The Ancient City Of Plovdiv & Creative Souls       Poetry is that that dreadful source of Ecstasy, Bliss and Depth. All of that is not necessary in the normal lives of people. “This is the Technical age, no place for Poetry.” “Poetry is today written solely for books to be signed and authors to be applauded.”              I never liked the idea of monuments, fixed statements, the idea of endings and I most certainly I did not believe in anything real vanishing into oblivion. “Poetry is dead”, somebody said to me. That could only be the […]

The Haves & Have Nots

It’s a Twenty-First Century Type of Conversation The Haves & The Have Nots   I have no grand words, no promises of greatness, scientific proofs. I have no laboratory where I can test and learn about each Atom. I have no desire or wish to prove right or wrong. I have no time to react to pressure with pressure. Whether I know or do not know, that is not worthy of a conversation. Whether I learn or unlearn, that’s a whole other topic, too. Whether I am funny or dancing, whether I live or smile mesmerized… Whether I keep […]

There Is A World Inside This World – Poetry

Poetry by Svetlina Trifonova Someone opened the forest and said: “There is a world inside this world”. I will show you once, then you will never forget. Someone took me for a walk, learned the language of a hedgehog. Someone once left me alone, and I learned to be cautious and tender. Someone showed me the secret of snow, someone gave me a cape made of feathers. I was a traveler, and I traveled alone. But remember… Someone is always guiding you Home. Now, while your Soul sits on its throne, let me assure you. Someone cares of your […]

Every Once In A While – Poetry

Dedicated To The Best… Possible Version Of Things Every once in a while, every other century I assume, the kind of love happens that makes you an electrified, magnetic Sun incapable of functioning in this common version of accepted reality. This is absolutely, truly scaring, completely nullifying, causes brain damage – as people forget they were ever hurt before, causes certain and sudden neuron malfunctions, as you become transformed, polished, shaken and swallowed by the great, mysterious, centuries-lasting powers of Love, which has absolutely no care for your convenience, job, status, opinions or other abnormalities. Hence, your great chance […]

New Life – The Prayer of the Phoenix

Poetry of the Phoenix I seek a new life. Maybe I am here to bring a new light. Maybe I wasn’t fit for this world. And calculations turn out to be wrong at times. I try to integrate, to gather and to nourish. I try, and try, and try. And each attempt takes strength and courage. Are you like me? Attempting every single time. Was your light flickering sometimes? What did you go through, Soul? I see you wounded and forgotten. I am here. And I want to know. To listen. Seek a new life! One without a stain […]

Ask For The Silence|Poetry

Ask for the Silence. Ask for time alone and time together. Ask for a dance away from violence. Ask, and ask, and ask again. But when your wish is granted – remember you are here for short. Just for the sweet momentum of the violins. Then when somebody holds your hands, when all your questions have been answered, remember the one who granted you this chance. Look up, find a beam of light and fly inside. Oh, how I pray that you remember. Svetlina Trifonova More Poetry for the Soul  (Copyright Applies) Please quote the author in case you share. […]
