with Apple trees in harmony.

with leaf - Pappus.


Apple orchard

Survive the disaster

2. Ducks


The reflection of the purple twilight

in the lake with clear water.

It came out of the tabernacles reed,

ducks soar after the other.


Feathers bright sparkles,

over-spreading wings

the bill is to whistle in the air cuts through,

Gordeeva become than the eagle.


Duck or duck - in nature

no production at all and not the game.

Soul is born in flight

and heights will be achieved.

3. Penguins


Penguins are the children of the ocean,

their babysitters - pink ice.

They dive, just-in bath

in the depths of the waters. Ah Yes the penguins!


But what slouch their backs?

And there somehow kosobuko...

As children are poor penguins,

who in the world is lonely.

The night when no one sleeps.

The Windows in the city did not go off.

Coniferous spirit reigns everywhere.

Life does not seem in vain.


Spruce is dancing with

the spire, wrapped in garland,

the branches shook, and on them -

all luxurious attire:


the stars, the suns, the balls;

here snegurka but...

And moments like gifts

Christmas - magic.

                                      6. April in Bratceva


                            Away - the old manor house:

rotunda, portico, coordonare.

Carried away by the flood of ice

stream, irresistibly soon.


                            Remnants of snow on the hill

among the chestnut colored thawed patches.

Snags twisted roots.

And pine, as under the banner, stood up.


And, overturning, breaking and spoils

stream rotunda, the spire and a portico.

In the pond, in the monastery of his

Their garments white, pearl.

And you - loving, friendly.

                            Moscow. The metropolis. Giant.

The scale. The sizes. The volume.

Avenues, bridges, overpasses

gorge, community, faults.


The bends of the river banks,

the ridges of the surrounding skyscrapers.

The flying path bondage

bridge over the gaping abyss.


Space chilly landscape.

Trolley - interplanetary ship.

Shimmering, unsteady Mirage.

Alarming. Beckoning. Cherished.

9. First snow


Today, the first snow fell,

large flakes sprinkled.

Unexpectedly, suddenly, suddenly fell,

and at once fell asleep, all and all.


And went to a curb on the fence,

and "house" on the front garden.

And trembling by his touch

Rowan was touched, and point blank


large berries her

look, orange blushing.

And the twig, merging with it,

tit body shakes his.


And the air gust and bluish.

And flakes all fly, fly...

10. Airport in Ulyanovsk


At the aircraft belly silver

tattoo: "S", and next to "Z",

and "93"and the ribbed

left at takeoff and landing

wheels on crutches chassis.

And he, I hope it's all right,

this "SZ", all in the ointment?


                                                        24 September 2006     





                            11. Suburban platform


Rails, running up

the ladder leading to the inevitable.

Semaphore signalling "go back";

fir emitting tenderness.


Pink highlights in the snow.

Grows dark. Clear and frosty.

In the schedule necessary line

looking for a citizen who is very serious...


Aside houses, woods...

On the platform the inscription: "the Reconstruction".







                            All over, all over grabs a glance

rave - luminous colors.

Any subject - everything in the world, all in a row

as a gem, as beautiful Prince in a fairy tale.


Ordinary Polyana in the dark

shines like a decorated Christmas tree.

All flexible, all kruglitsa on the list -

the hills, the road, the banks, the country roads.


Palette snow, rainbow jet,

dreamy Lancet ate,

the crown naklonilsya their -

even closer than it actually is.


Sunflowers and daisies, and a garden,

and the Crimea, and the Moscow platform

the seabed, and the port and a waterfall,

The Pamir mountains and the Alps is wonderful, miraculous.


All countries, all colors and all time

all equivalent and equal.

The Creator of countless names.

Features of the Divine countenance.
