Vladislav Hristov 

(English translations by Maya Lyubenova)

 

warm rain . . .
the grape-pickers’ shoulders
shudder


топъл дъжд...
потръпват раменете
на гроздоберачките

rice field . . .
as many mosquitoes
as the grain


оризово поле...
колкото зърна
толкова и комари

enormous moon . . .
how can you hold it
with two eyes?


огромна луна...
как да я побереш
в две очи?

hot noon
fish under the angler's
shadow


горещо пладне
под сянката на рибаря
риби

hot noon . . .
the cat lies under
his shadow


пладне...
котаракът ляга
под сянката си

the last night
of summer
each on a separate bed


последен ден
на лятото
всеки на отделно легло

във всеки сак

a sleeping mouse
the resurrection


върху козунака

a lost dog
shares my lunch

изгубено куче
споделя обяда ми

only she saw
the meteor shower

само тя вида

if only I’d picked them
last night
muddy chrysanthemums

right now
two uncut pages


чел съм я толкова пъти
едва сега

the dog still meets me
with joy


обир
кучето все тъй
радостно ме посреща
