Poem – With One Eye (By Marieta Maglas)

A flight separates

the sea from the sky.

Her glance caresses

the stillness. The flowers

scathed by hail

become bluish. They do not

die, yet. This life without


him is like the plenitude seen with one eye. Her right

convictions sculpt

in sadness

as in a block of marble

a rocky embrace. The sun

is crying. There is only one


single eye in the core of this universe. He is still


in between the things

of her remembrance.


So many colors are catching her

that she cannot be

lighthearted. Their flux is tropic.

She blends them in a caramel.

These colors become as negative

as the sounds coming from


a broken guitar. Her name is Eve, and

she waits

to be eaten by worms someday.
