A photo from the past

I dreamt of returning home
Where for long time ago
I made a small house
Of green grass and broken woods.
I dreamt of returning to my childhood.
When there were no responsibilities
No worries, no fears of failure probabilities.
I dreamt of returning to my childhood,
When there were no extra loads.
Actually I returned
through a smiling child photo
through a moment from the past I borrowed.
The child ran far away
With her small hands she waves goodbye
She refused for only one moment to stay
Neither my world is hers nor the day.
I am not blaming her
As she is back to her time
And I am still in mine
So none of us can live in the other’s time.
And I wake up from my dream
On the smiling child in the photo
On the moment that for transient moment
I borrowed.

A Lovely Date

Dear peacock when you dance in a forest,
It’s the beauty itself that dances with you,
Can you tell me how do you love and the rest?
How your beloved romances with you?

Heard when you dance too much in emotion,
Tears come out of your eyes in love,
She comes with the kisses of stars in passion,
Did you teach this art to the lovely dove?

Dear dove while flying you manage to be loved,
It’s the love itself that glides with you,
Can you teach this art to my angry beloved?
Who is in your soul that rides with you?

Riding on someone the couple when sings,
We say it is wind it’s not unicorn,
Sure it’s an animal with the mighty wings,
That telecasts this attractive porn.

Dear mermaids have you seen this porn?
Tell the dolphins I know you are shy,
I am still a child and I play in a morn,
And in aurora of a dusky sky,

Dear dolphins write the secret on the waves,
The waves will wet and excite the sand,
Bring Milky Way with the shining paves,
Running bare footed she will hold my hand,

We shall dive in the sea and go on an island,
Whereat we shall see the grave of hate,
Dancing flying and a hand in hand,
We shall enjoy a lovely date.

Teddy Bear

My teddy bear was getting old.
I showed him to my dad.
The threads that made his mouth were gone.
My teddy bear looked so sad.

His round dark eyes were crooked.
His button nose hung down.
It made me cry to look at him,
my teddy bear, soft and brown.

A jagged hole showed stuffing
poking through along one side.
I had to hug him gently,
so it wouldn’t grow more wide.

When Dad showed him to Mommy,
She fixed him up like new.
His button nose was tight again.
His mouth was smiling, too.

His eyes were side by side now
just like they used to be
and when I sat and talked to him,
he looked right back at me.

She pushed the stuffing in again
then sewed the hole with thread,
and when I went to sleep last night,
he was with me on my bed.

You know that someone loves you
by the little things they do.
Sometimes it means much more
than even saying “I love you.”

In the Park

She sits in the park. Her clothes are out of date.
Two children whine and bicker, tug her skirt.
A third draws aimless patterns in the dirt
Someone she loved once passed by – too late

to feign indifference to that casual nod.
“How nice” et cetera. “Time holds great surprises.”
From his neat head unquestionably rises
a small balloon…”but for the grace of God…”

They stand a while in flickering light, rehearsing
the children’s names and birthdays. “It’s so sweet
to hear their chatter, watch them grow and thrive, ”
she says to his departing smile. Then, nursing
the youngest child, sits staring at her feet.
To the wind she says, “They have eaten me alive.”

Revitalized Buildings

Architectural photography is one of the oldest forms of photography there is. Architecture is all around us – so photographers have long photographed buildings and monuments.

Architecture photography can involve photos of exteriors as well as interiors. Buildings are multi-faceted – they provide us with places to live and work, but they are also artworks, and of course, some buildings have enormous historical or cultural significance.

Another Touch

Seeing you from time to time
I always smile inside
We speak about nothing
It’s like a prelude
To something else
Something more
I don’t know yet
But I like this
Somehow and I know
You like this too
So we are waiting
For another time
Another way
To find
Each other
Only in our dreams life
But it is so nice
So strange
When I see you
Again and again
It’s like a ray of a new day
Inside my heart
Another reason to smile
Another touch

A Kiss

Drenching my mouth
In the pastels – tints
Of its passing,
Absorbing every touch of its colour
This warmth I love,
It pulsates in blood,
And I penetrate
Across its variety,
Pages of you
To become only
The small particle
Drinking from your mouth
My own soultellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.

Cuba, officially the Republic of Cuba is an island country comprising the island of Cuba, as well as Isla de la Juventud and several minor archipelagos. Cuba is located where the northern Caribbean SeaGulf of Mexico, and Atlantic Ocean meet. Cuba is located east of the Yucatán Peninsula (Mexico), south of both the American state of Florida and the Bahamas, west of Hispaniola (Haiti/Dominican Republic), and north of both Jamaica and the Cayman IslandsHavana is the largest city and capital; other major cities include Santiago de Cuba and Camagüey.

Cuba is famous for its cigars, its rum made from sugar cane, its ladies, Salsa and other Cuban dance styles, Fidel Castro and Che Guevara, 1950s-era cars, Spanish-colonial architecture, Cuban National Ballet, Buena Vista Social Club and Guantanamo Bay.

There are an estimated 60-70,000 vintage cars in Cuba, from classic American models like Chevrolets, Buicks, Chryslers, Oldsmobiles and Fords to Soviet-era Volgas and Ladas. About half of them date back to the 1950s, the rest are even older. In the USA or UK these cars would be historic artifacts, locked carefully in a temperature-controlled garage, lovingly buffed every week, and driven only on the most special occasions. But in Cuba they are people’s daily runarounds, used as standard for picking up friends or running errands.

Cuba is well-known for its lively dance scene which dives influences from both African and Spanish music. The mambo, charanga, rumba, cha-cha, and danzon are all popular types of traditional music that the Cubans still enjoy to date. Their most famous type of music, salsa, evolved over time from a blend of these different types of music.

The history of the first coffee plantations in Cuba, founded at the end of the 18th century, attracted UNESCO’s interest. Since 2000, one of the world’s cultural heritage sites – landscapes in the southeast of the country in the Sierra Maestra, Guantanamo and Santiago de Cuba provinces. Of more than 2,000 old plantation estates, 170 have survived. There, all the details of the thoughtful and rich lifestyle and activities of the owners appear before the eyes of travelers – the planter’s house, gardens, production facilities, places for drying, cleaning and roasting coffee fruits. And, of course, the modest or very poor huts of local slaves who worked on the plantations.
