Dainty-haunting-tantalise, 3WW

3WW – dainty-haunting-tantalise

Dedicated to all suffering in Japan.


Contrary to all we feel,

the Earth is dainty

you see cars chucked aside by water,

as if small shells before the wave we make by hand.

Fractured images are haunting

filling us with awe.

We pause.

They don’t.

Tantalising our mind

regarding what will be.

Bulgarian-language version


Крехка е земята, противно на познатото.

От снимки ни преследва този страх,

че утре няма.

Частични образи ни карат да замлъкнем,

докато те крещят.

Умът застива без да знае

какво ще бъде.

    1. Madeleine – thanks a lot! In fact, my initial thoughts went more to the love and erotic direction (quite understandably), and I was reluctant to go there. So, in a way, I had secretly abandoned that combination. And then… I am very sad that it was such a disaster that inspired a totally new perspective. Tnanks for reading and commenting!
