I SEEK HER SPIRIT
« : 27 Mai, 2005, 02:25:31 pm »
She wonders why so much passion
and heat and intensity in bed
each night why so much love-making
why such blind delight in sex
even after fifteen years
why such urgency and excitement
at forty three and two children
to sense spring between the thighs

as if I've nothing to prove
beyond maleness or neural itch

ever hungry for love and
its fulfilment in giving
I seek her spirit through body
rise to heaven together
and forget demeaning aloneness

Ea se întreabă de ce atâta pasiune
şi căldură şi intensitate în pat
noapte de noapte de ce atâta dragoste carnală
chiar şi după cincisprezece ani
de ce atâta ardoare şi patimă
la patruzeci şi trei de ani şi doi copii
să simţi primăvara între coapse

ca şi cum n-aş avea nimic de dovedit
dincolo de masculinitate ori provocare neurală

totdeauna însetat de iubire şi
de împlinirea ea în dăruire
îi caut spiritul în trup
să ne ridicăm în paradis împreună
şi să uităm singurătatea înjositoare.

First of all, I tried to offer a Romanian version of the poem, I hope close to its initial meaning. It was somehow as if I would try to feel the poem as a whole, mine, in my own spirit, in my language where I feel at home. As for the questions – I believe that it is about man’s own fears, a fear of loneliness, a fear of being ordinary, of having lived and realized it was in vain. In the same time it’s about man’s hunger for fulfillment, for understanding the deep meaning of life and love in a desperate attempt to find all of that in love-making, in passion, in lust. A kind of transcendence of body in spirit, like a chemic sublimation to find the philosopher’s stone.

Hi: it's so kind of you to have translated my poem in Romanian to be so intimately close to the text, and the feelings and emotions it inheres. I am sure other readers comfortable both in English and Romanian will be able to share their views with us. I look  forward to reading their comments.
