TIME  OF THE POET REPUBLIC is  fast  becoming  a hot -spring of global talents. A    sizzling pot  of brimming  literary arts  stews and a gourd filled  poetry beverages . The art of poesy becomes our  healing  therapy as the entire earth  is writhing  in the agony of loss , death  , grief and pain under the oppressive  yoke  of COVID-19 . Groaning under  bondage of severe  mass black funerals experienced  in most  of  places of our wretched earth. We chant  in defiance , #BLACKLIVESMATTER. ENOUGH !. Last night  I met legendary writer , a multi-award wining poet, iconic literary arts figure  and a very important wordsmith  , Bulgarian Arts Luminary ,VIOLETA BONCHEVA.  Her words blaze the soul  like a  refined morning breeze . Her poetry  chills down fever  clutched souls  and as well  cools down naivety gripped hearts .The lines  softly  thrash on reader  like the serene  mountain drizzle , remember the  relief rainfall. Poetry heals.  BONCHEVA writes  simple but rhythm -packed   verses, yet  turgid with hope , promise , demise and pondering . Paradox.  She captures nature and natural beings in her poetry  like  photo-camera  clucking ,clicking  and clocking fame fervent  lives into its  insatiable film belly .  The imagery in here is historic and it  is the watermark of her poesy. VIOLETA is one doyen  literary arts culture ICON  to be featured on this grand  Poetry Art and  Internet based thicket . Legendary Artist   VIOLETA BONCHEVA was born  and bred  in Eastern European country , Bulgaria . She  is  a widely published  Author , Acclaimed Thespian and an Accomplished Poet. We all know that the sun rises from the East .And the eastern horizons are both spiritual and biblical.

МОЯТА УЛИЦА

Тази улица се казва Носталгия –
по нея стъпваше времето

Violeta Boncheva 2
и аз до него.
Беше кръстосана с листни чадъри,
котешки стъпки и тромпети.
Беше центърът на света
тази улица,
която ме разхождаше под сенките си –
събирах ситни лимони по нея,
един старец ми махаше под сомбрерото си.

Сега аз съм като една улица –
преминават през мен колелата на болката,
а сърцето ми, умореното куче,
не спира да cе дърпа назад
и да моли.

MY STREET

This street is called Nostalgia –
time was stepping on it
and I next to him.
It was crossed with leaf umbrellas,
cat’s footsteps and trumpets.
It was the center of the world,
this street
that walked me under its shadows –
I picked small lemons on it,
an old man was waving at me
under his sombrero.

Now I’m like a street –
the wheels of pain pass through me,
and my heart, the weary dog,
doesn’t stop pulling back
and to pray.

The poem won the Publishers’ Choice Award in Portland, USA.

МОСТ
По палмов мост
Р. Шидерска

Обичам да минавам по тези мостове
вградени в хълбоците на времето
вбити в бреговете на разстоянията
осветени от очакване

обичам зелените нощи над мостовете
да ловя звездите
които ми подхвърляш от другия бряг
и да ги пускам като светещи хвърчила
и послания на ръцете

хрускат под стъпките ми палмови клони
този мост е изплетен от сънищата
посипан е с пясък горещ
ситни бодли и пот
сух вятър реже въздуха на парчета

понякога искам да се събудя внезапно
но мостът ме люлее
люлее

и не се къса

 

BRIDGE

On the palm bridge
R. Shiderska

I like to cross these bridges
embedded in the hips of time
killed in the shores of the distances
lit by anticipation

i love green nights over bridges
to catch the stars
which you throw at me from the other shore
and release them like glowing kites
and hand messages

palm branches crunch under my feet
this bridge is woven from dreams
it is sprinkled with hot sand
fine thorns and sweat
dry wind cuts the air into pieces

sometimes I want to wake up suddenly
but the bridge swings me
swings

and does not break

 

3.Violeta Boncheva 5


Пиша дъжд и по-надолу думата чадър.

Х. Е. Санчес

ЗА ТЕБ измислям думи
и ги подреждам

Скала
която да ме брани
от мъртвото вълнение

Елен
понесъл на рогата си
парче от утро

Папрат
в пясъка внезапно придошъл

Песен
изтичаща от ангелски тръби

Кит
понесъл цялото море на гръб

Сърце

накрая пиша

и ти го давам

 

***Violeta Boncheva 3

I write rain and below the word umbrella.

  1. E. Sanchez

I make up words for YOU
and arrange them

Rock
to defend me
from the dead excitement

Deer
carried on his horns
a piece of morning

Fern
in the sand suddenly came

A song
flowing from angelic trumpets

Whale
carried the whole sea on his back

Heart

finally I write

and I give it to you

4.


Орехът е луднал по пътешествията
Хванал се е за ръкавите на вятъра
И сам чупи корените си
Не си е избрал още посоката
Но ще се ориентира по птиците

 


Walnut is crazy about traveling
It grabbed the sleeves of the wind
And it broke its own roots
It has not yet chosen its direction
But it will focus on the birds
