Five new poems by Margarita Serafimova

Photography: Marina Stamenova

The animals you showed me

I saw life passing,
blue, with yellow adornments,
all in light,
before our embrace.


I like your sun,
I said, and lightly kissed your ear.
The boat was flying.


You were glowing.
Glowing was the water.
Through my eyes, dolphins were passing.
I was there, that is why you were all glowing.


We fell in love.
And rushing was the wind, rushing was
the stream of the sea.
Life was keen to take a ride.


He is the sunrise.
He rises every morning in the East
where the beginning is.
