THE DAY YOU ARE BORN…

… is the first day you start looking for air

… is the first day you start looking for water

… is the first day you start looking for food

… is the first day you start looking for love

… is the first day you start looking for trouble

… is the first day you start looking for yourself

… is the first day you start looking for music

… is the first day you start looking for poetry

… is the first day you start looking for mephisto

… is the first day you start looking for death

… is the first day you start looking for the re-birth

… is  the first day you start looking for the word

… is the day you start looking for Jesus Christ.

 “… the nightingale song/

softly startles the lilacs/

… divine smell, deep night…”

SOMETIMES…

 Sometimes life sucks for you.

Sometimes death sucks for you.

Sometimes it’s no forgiveness in you.

Sometimes it’s no love in you.

Sometimes it’s no hope in you.

Sometimes it’s no prayer in you.

Sometimes, it’s no child in you.

Sometimes, it’s no heart in you.

Sometimes, sucks is the whole you.

Sometimes, where is God? ask you.

Sometimes sucks – blow up when you…

Sometimes at least, call Jesus to be you.

 “… there is less shadow/

under the ill oak… this spring,/

still, look! some green leafs…”

***

A GIFT…

 Neither for you, nor for me, for no one life is rightful to have it.

Life is a gift. Oh, yes, God’s gift for you, for me…

You can love it and to thank for it. You can hate it and to reject it.

God’s gift of life is granted with the Free Will. Always.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3; 16)

And, his only Son is the Son of Man as well.

Therefore, do not forget: God is God.

The American dream is irrefutable, today, the global Coca-cola reality. 

“In God we trust” – is irrefutable, today, a dusty slogan on the dollar bills…

And the life is just God’s gift for you, for me…

The third millennium will be Christian or will be not.

 “… night of August – see?/

… myriad stars; the crickets…/

…hear? what a quiet peace…

Leonard Oprea created the Breathing, an original type of essay in Romanian and world literature.The Breathing is a short, simple yet profound meditation on human condition, a meditation ended by a haiku. But – this haiku does not finish the meditation. In fact, it re-opens this reflection to new questions and responses on human destiny. There are 100 Breathings in Leonard Oprea’s work „Theophil Magus – Confessions 2004 – 2006”, ed. „Universal Dalsi”, 2007, Romania)
