About Cristina-Monica Moldoveanu

See the blind beggar dance, the cripple sing, The sot a hero, lunatic a king; (Alexander Pope: An Essay on Man: Epistle II. )

I began to write poems in childhood, then, after a scientific education, I restarted to write poems when I was 36 (in 2007) and then haiku in 2010. I also translated some of my poems in English.

a poem from my third ebook, The Scent of Blue Ink (2015) here:


my happiness ends here / on a Sunday’s evening
after the cross atop the church’s steeple becomes cooler
after this bright red sunset
there will be no more painless/ careless/ fearless moments
the asphalt is empty and dull for my soles/ its echoes are lost
no better things to do than strolling these streets/ almost losing ground
then staring at people right into the whole/ the full of them
without any thought on my mind

only the shadow of my elbow is touched by other shadows
en passant
silhouette after silhouette
Modigliani’s women/ Brâncu┼či’s magical birds
la dolce morte della luce

everything flows into thoughts/ thoughts into other thoughts
even Charon’s boat disappears
and right now my lips paralyzed to prevent me from proving the truth
