Rubin

De ce vorbesti atat de mult,
mai bine asculta ce nu se spune.
In tacerea asurzitoare a gandurilor
cele mai scumpe vise, niste rubine,
spalate de ape ca pietre de rau
la munte uitate in albii aride.
Aici, stelele rosii ascunse in nori,
imaginate de minte, create de inimi.

Why do you want to talk so much
You’d better listen to what’s not spoken.
In the deafening silence of thoughts
the most expensive of dreams, rubies,
washed by waters, like river rocks,
forgotten in mountains, in dried river beds.
Here, red stars hidden inside clouds,
imagined by a mind, created by hearts.
