Four Poems by Francisc Edmund Balogh


The echo story


       To the teacher


Listen to the deposition

of the bare mountains,

of the olive trees,              

of your own  hearts,

of the sunset,                            

of the wind.


The story can not end,

can not start either

without our roles

and the 30 pieces of silver.


The story flows

unstoppably like the river of Jordan,

over the feet of the tainted souls,

it cleaves perfectly

as a patch from inside..

to the blue sky.


This story

is the deposition

of the blood

that runs through

our veins.



Too late


It is too late

to blow the candle,

the dawn has already sensed

our split impressions

that are still looking for each other



in the twists and turns

of the catacombs of the soul!!

The rain is tapping at the window

the dot of the last verse,

in the overloaded hourglass

of the memory

compressed poems.



Rooftop poem


This poem is a rooftop

with doves  on it,

a horizon line

in a horizonless dawn.


Your sigh

sneaks out like a cat

into the night

to bundle it’s lives

in mystery.


The flowers at  your window

are messengers of

the beauty of silence.



The crack


The birds have never returned,

they remained somewhere beyond

the barb wired mist of the winter,

time ran quickly through the corridor of the night

stepping mercilessly with his boots

on their somnolence,  on their nest

from our heart,

it has alerted the stars, the moon,

that howl of desire

preserved in the roots,

in the poems hidden under the wings

of the birds,

we have met once again,

here on the tightrope of words.
