Prawdziwe fantazje--By Eliza Segiet--Poland (Translation By Artur Komoter--United Kingdom)

Prawdziwe fantazje--Polish
(To Professor Bogumila Rouba)

By Eliza Segiet

Jakże łatwo odpocząć
w samotności rozmytych myśli.
Zostawić plany,
być tam -
poza realnym czasem.
Tylko ja
i moje prawdziwe fantazje.
Być wolną,
a jednak
uwięzioną w ustach pulsującej natury.
Tylko odpływ
odkrywający nagość plaży
przypomina, że
czas płynie.

Eliza Segiet, Poland

True Fantasie
(To Professor Bogumila Rouba)

Translation by Artur Komoter--United Kingdom

How easy it is to rest
in loneliness of fuzzy thoughts.
To leave plans behind,
to be there -
beyond real time.
Just me
and my true fantasies.
To be free,
trapped in the mouth of pulsating nature.
Only the low tide
revealing the nudity of the beach
reminds that
time flows.

Eliza Segiet graduated with a Master's Degree in Philosophy, completed postgraduate studies in Cultural Knowledge, Philosophy, Arts and Literature at Jagiellonian University, as well as Film and Television Production in Lodz. Author's works can be found in anthologies and literary magazines worldwide
