Portrait of the Poet as a Young Man

March 22, 2013

plamenI have known Plamen Petrov for years as a blogger, among a number of other professional activities, but it was only today that I discovered he had been into poetry years ago and couldn’t help posting a short Portrait of the Poet as a Young Man. From his Poem book (in Bulgarian):

zenALMOST ZEN ІІІ

Our bodies cannot part,
While our souls never met.
And there we are – split.
A soul without body.
A body without soul.

    You may find more of Plamen Petrov‘s poetic works at this link‘Love Memoir’ (in Bulgarian) –

    You were the sun, I was the moon.
    You were the bread, I was the salt.
    Things changed and are different now.
    And the evening is sad.
    Now I am alone without you and darkness
    Surrounds me all around.
    You were the sun, I was the moon
    But no stars are shining tonight.
