Biography of Natalia Sozh and friends
SOZH is a pen-name taken by NATALIA after the river in Belorussia where she was born.
AKULINA TAMM is also a pen-name of another friend of mine. If I'm not mistaken she took it after her grandmother.
My name is a real one. Reading and translating verses is my hobby.
We all live in Tiraspol, Moldova.
Being fond of my talented frieds I want you to get acquainted with them too. And I do hope you'll enjoy their poetry.
Those who read Russian can also find Akulina and me at 'stihi.ru'.
You are welcome!
Natalia Sozh and friends Poems
George Jaropolsky. Insomnia
No scratches, neither sirens nor more cries. In grayish air the sun is going to rise. Leaves whisper in the splashing of the rain And faint hopeless sounds of crying drain.

When I come to the end of tether And see my day of "nevermore" Grandchildren probably will gather And ask me what we're living for.

I probably could try and kill somebody else With misty arrows of verses Or shoot into a male's chest Aiming two guns of knees with curses…

If we were good actors and scenes were a pleasure The morning will answer and make its measure For sober mornings wash make-up away And yesterday's fairy tales decay.
Akulina Tamm. Woman's Verses
I never write while sitting at my desk In the notorious big poets' pose. The manner's really quite picturesque: A genius rubbing now and then his nose!
Natalia Sozh. Tulips
The tulips shut their tender petals
To guard the secrets of the day.
The path turned into stinging-nettles -
I watched you going away.
The garden gate would sigh and veil
The sound of steps. And then, it seems,
I'll hide my wishes like a snail
Into the shell of sleepy dreams.
