Rositza Pironska


in the cup
of this cap
I put fireflies

       в чашката
       на тази шапка
       сипвам светулки

tremble lightly on the
stork's back

     * ситен дъжд вали
       леко потръпват гърбовете
       на щъркелите

      a translucent
snail shell under autumn leaves
full moon

под есенните листа
       прозрачна черупка на охлюв

  autumn quiet---
I smoke
to warm up

       тиха есен
       за да се стопля

by the seashore,
a dimunitive sun

      морски бряг
      препича слънцето
      толкова е малко всичко
