The color of pain is dim


Kolor bólu jest ciemny
(Eng. The color of pain is dim)

(May 25, 2014)

inspired by poetry by H. Poświatowska (excerpt)

Polish text Copyright 1989 Wydawnictwo Literackie, Kraków, Poland
Halina Poświatowska, Polish, d. 11 oct 1967.
translation by Marek Lugowski,

kolor wiosny jest zielony
a kolor bólu — ciemny
krew zakrzepła w jeziorze świeci
strugą słów wezbrany księżyc

the color of springtime is green
but the color of pain — dim
blood congealed shines in the lake
moon runs high with a stream of words
