«THE PUZZLED BY SPECTACLE OF WORLD»

     
     
 
 
 
 
 

There are clouds, resembling the fish.
The smoke of flaming autumn.
The aging city.
Keeper of mysteries of night lanterns
and early morning streets.
There are houses, sheds,
dovecots,
rocking the doves and pairs in love.
Endlessness of time, sky and sea.
There are footprints on the sand.
The sunflower field.
Smell of rain and acacias.
Life, having flashed
From the last till the first sigh.

Grey angel quietly entered into the room.
He sat down on an edge of sofa.
He looked at me attentively.
- You came to take me? - I asked.
He smiled tiredly.
- No. I am angel-comforter.
He laid his hand on my shoulder.
It became warmly and calmly.
Where was smell of sky and sea from his hand.
