Poetry by Cornelia Paun Heinzel, Ph.D


CORNELIA PĂUN HEINZEL: "Time"

Every moment has its own meaning, significance,
For me, for you, for him.
In every moment there is an action important
For me, for you, for him.
Time is always crucial,
For me, for you, for him.
Any moment can forewer change your life, mine, his,
Today, tomorrow, after tomorrow, forever.
For a brief moment, you can be a king,
Over me, over you, over him,
In a moment, you can lose,
Everything, a little or nothing …

CORNELIA PĂUN HEINZEL: "Dreams"

When the upper eyelid of the eye,
He will comfort the the lower one
And your genes will be intertwined
You can discern the future
undefined as a dream
And you will be able to outline destiny with their own hands,
You will envelop dreams
Embroidered fairies your thoughts.
Dreams flying with wings spread to infinity,
As two parallel without ever touching it.
Thoughts newborn
like the goddess Aphrodite, sea foam,
Shreds of hope, confidence
tireless floating in nothingness,
Without being thrown into the abyss of oblivion...
And together, the memories, the waves in shades ,
Colors that give effect to this
Streams of tears
the gushing sap chaotic future.
When imagination is not helping you,
Open your eyes and see
that nothing is what it seems,
And then ask your own ego
about future
That we expect with confidence.

Cornelia Păun Heinzel: IDEALISTIC / IDEALIST

You always tell me: you are incredibly idealistic
when you love all people equally, trees and flowers, animals,
without concealing them with the cloak of inequality,
when you are admiring what it is worthy of praises,
without the worm of jealousy eating you whole,
when you do not harm anybody
and the waves of evil do not immerse you,
when you understand every being,
even if you, for this fact, are enigmatic,
when you help anyone from the kindness of your heart
without expecting something in return,
when you consider money have no value
and the wisps of greed never daze you,
when you always forgive
without the boulder of vengeance shattering you in pieces,
when you introduce yourself to people the way you truly are,
without performing on the stage of life as a perfect actor,
when you truly are faithful
without the arrows of evil, greed and deception piercing you…
