POEMS by Rudina Papajani


I am a woman,

who is like a storm 

sweeping away the chaos, 

a spring dancing with playful energy, 

and kissing the world. 

I am your sweetheart, 

your rush of a river 

affecting the newly planted fields 

by the strength of my soul. 

I do not conceal the mist, 

I am creating paths 

through the rustling leaves, 

from missing you. 

Can you sense it, my love? 

I am the wind of the mountains 

spreading its wings to greet the sun, 

the moment of light laughing at night. 

I am the willow flower 

singing loudly 

by the dew-filled stream.


There is life close to us, 

protecting us from the evil and the lame, 

guiding us towards light and peace, 

when we love wholeheartedly. 

An angel is close to us, 

that descends in rain and lightning, 

providing comforting breath there on my shoulder. 

The universe is close to us, 

awakening us and ... instilling bravery, 

pushing us harshly on empty days, 

and celebrating with us in moments of joy. 

This is why I am unafraid of a broken bone, 

that pierces our flesh little by little, 

I am taking excessive courage, every day

and remove the shavings that stick to us every moment.. 


the mountains watch in vain, 

to help the hills, 

that dwell below them. 

There is nothing left, 

but the ashes and the burning wind. 

Only the evil tongues ​​live properly, 

they are extended somewhat too long, 

and they are weighed every morning, 

when the alum is separated from the sugar,

even the echoes sound hungry, 

rising the hills to strip away 

the mantles of the nobles.

Knowledge nowdays resides only on the mountain's peaks, 

though the wasps that sleep near a carrion, 

fly in the hope of some beehives. 

They eagerly await the Sun,

Some believing it will rise after


(English translation by Taena Mata)
