Concert On The Romanian Seaside - Poem by Marieta Maglas

Vocal fold vibration,
Simple harmonic motion,
Nonlinear interaction of sound waves,
Empathizing the rhythm
Of the naked music
And the embracing voice,

Words and thoughts
Coming alive and vivid
At the sound touch,
Having its own sense of charm,
Changing depths of enlightened awareness,
Discovering the thrill
Of seeing new interior structures,
Protecting its innate purity
For the song in itself,
For those souls,
Who are engulfed in desire
And for his own vision,

His voice shimmering wings luminously,
Pleasurably exalting,
Those realms of the spirit just indelible,
Those souls becoming vivified
And exhilarated,



His songs
Swirling space sounds,
Carrying their meaning into the universe,



The saxophone sounds cascading
Into the synth melodies,
Billowing into the sea waves,
Needing a dimension on its own,

Silent spectators
Immortalizing the split seconds
With strong emotions,



Applause breaking the silence,
Touching sights,
Touching voices,
Touching emotions,

Between ebb and flow,
Michael Bolton singing,


Ascension silhouetted-Against
The shivering waves—Ghosts,
His songs-Haunting the moonlight,
Creating twinkling feelings,
Sky-searching the light.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

*The concert took place near the casino.
Legend ‘'says'' that this casino was built as a tribute to the great navigator's daughter drowned at a young age, about 17 years. This legend ‘'says'' that her spirit still haunts this casino. As a proof, there was a negative charge in the building. People were loosing money, and after that, they tried to commit suicides. The ornaments on the front of the casino look like coffins marking the funerals of that girl. This casino looks like having a hearse, and some windows have the shapes of the graves. It is said that if you look closely at the front door, you can see two heads of rams (ornament made for the old hearses) . Officially, the Casino was built in 1909 and opened in 1910. Its design was made by the architect Daniel Renard, who made the first project in 1903. He was a young Romanian architect of Swiss origin. The casino has been for decades, the only element of the architectural style named 'art nouveau' style. It is easy to recognize this casino due to the use of the open curves. They provide some dynamism and 'rhythm'. All these are redrawn to appear 'live' while having a sense of the motion. Between 1985 and 1987, the building was renovated and the furniture was completely changed.
Casino Constanta is a historical monument built to meet the needs of the Black Sea in the period called ‘'La Belle Epoque''. In the past, there were gentlemen reading the newspaper early in the morning, or walking with the enchanting ladies on the promenade. The sound of the military music was filling the atmosphere on sunset, and there were impeccable evening outfits.
The building has rich decorations inspired by the marine worlds like waves, climbing plants, beautiful flowers and fantastic shell windows to make you believe that you are in an undersea palace, where Poseidon is behind the curtain of the Majestic Theater stage, which is situated in the main room. The Casino is challenging your imagination step by step with every ornament, every broken mirror and every crack in the wall.
