Masiela Lusha Poems
A Man of Forty
A man of forty. Forty years the child. His eyes don't see me but his mother. His past. And like a child he wanders Clean through the tunnels of his time.
Call Us Women
All you men... What lies in your fists? In your eyes,
A Translation of Mother Theresa's poem, ...
A Translation of Mother Theresa’s 'Jeta' Life
The Polite Sea
By the polite sea I rest, Engaging in attention And words. By the sea I lay, by the sea I pray,
Night and Tears
Your whisper cannot ride the louder wind... Your frown becomes the night, The owl, high and hidden delights in song And does not meet your broken eyes.
Drinking the Moon
I have planned and dreamt of this trophy of gold, The halo of silver, around in which it molds. I have cradles this idea and nursed it to true plan, I have fed it seeds of confidence, O this is so grand!
Full Moon- A Siren's Song
They blame you for the celebrated madness- For the tearing open of beasts' throats, Releasing demons into the twilight waves of lull.
Fruits of Tribute
When mores bind this flesh and spirit Into one man of mortal pride and truth, When two drops of tranquil waters Fill his sight's hollows with tranquil views.
I Dig for Nothing
I dig for nothing tonight. No stars. I cannot find The constant moon. I could write about the moon
I Cannot Love You Honestly
I wish to bend your smiles so as better To ease my truth. I had lost the form of loving When you last battled my love with yours.
My Mind's Leopard
I cannot chain you. I shut my eyes, and there you dive Against the backdropp of veined darkness, Roaming in the jungle of my starry mind,
The Virgin Statue
The fiery frolic of Venus's omen Released the embers from Pygmalion's heart, Crackling against the statue's abdomen Till her ivory lips broke apart.
A carved stone can reign like a mountain, Only to be meat in natures jaw. But no wind or snow can tumble Into the steel minds of humanity and memory-
On Christmas morning we visit the marked stones, The grass, the pots of fresh Paradise Birds, Magnolias, Christmas trees, And we visit the names.

A Man of Forty
A man of forty. Forty years the child.
His eyes don't see me but his mother.
His past. And like a child he wanders
Clean through the tunnels of his time.
And lost logic, and found regret.
His history plays inside his eyes,
and his fingers play with his pain,
He doesn't play with logic. Logic
Can't be found in this child's fate.
And like a mother I care for him.
But I don't know him- He seems to know me
And cannot smile. His eyes only drift
From my lips, to his mother's hair;
And without a word, he reveals his wrists.
His manly wrists with tiny spots...
