A Tapestry of Poems and Art


This most gifted poetess from Romania, writes in a sublime and succinct manner, yet, her poetry speaks volumes on subjects or topics that matter, whether it is an emotion, circumstances, global affairs or the everyday philosophies of life, she touches on points of awareness and wholeheartedly addresses that which should be perceived and acknowledged.


NORMAL Are we normal or abnormal in this world? Are we sick if we are normal wishing just to be ourselves? It is so difficult not to be cut in pieces and made as a new model... © Bogdana Gageanu


EMPTY My memory is empty of all the memories I stocked During all these years so that I can have a new beginning. I am my own machine who can delete or add something. I am empty so I can breathe. © Bogdana Gageanu


DON'T BE ADDICTED! Fly, papers, fly! Don't be addicted to business Don't be attached with this! Just fly and find freedom and find creativity! Don't let yourself be filled with numbers and plans! Fill yourself with something beautiful! Find beautiful people and be kites for their beauty! Don't be addicted to bad news and horrible stories! Let a heart write about another heart and about small tiny hearts that will be born. Fly, papers, fly! For me, it is too late to escape! © Bogdana Gageanu



Give help with no name Don't remember somebody It was you who helped. The branches of a tree give fruits also, because of the roots but the roots don't claim their help. They are just happy with the result. Help should be hidden Recognition will come anyway Don't use your pride in help! © Bogdana Gageanu


LYRETTE POETRY FORM: Struggle All my life To defend me Sedulous hard work A blurred mirror Masked people Untrust. © Bogdana Gageanu


QUESTIONS She was told she had no parents that she was adopted but her heart had questions. She wanted to know the truth to search her real parents. The questions were like stones very, very heavy. Questions needed answers. © Bogdana Gageanu


STAIRS Build your stairs Any time somebody Makes you feel down. Build your stairs Even if you are the only architect And nobody helps you. Finally, you will climb The roof of success. © Bogdana Gageanu


SECRET POCKET I have a secret pocket Where I gather strength For the bad times. I gather energy and harmony As my own medicine. I remember myself to donate To me, too, this strength resource Because usually, I forget my own person. © Bogdana Gageanu


INSANE You probably think I am insane because I see you are only shadows and no light to see. You are walking shadows that are haunting and never finding their peace. You are haunting me but I am not afraid because I found my peace. I found my solitude but you can not stand it. You feed yourselves with the tears of others and you came for a new victim but I am not afraid of you. I am already seen as insane and lucky me, insane people have their own Heaven. You are afraid of me because I can read you inside. © Bogdana Gageanu
