THREE POEMS FOR SUZANNE By Varoujan Froundjian One Your face is the autumn light shining Through leaves hung by frozen Branches on the early harvest time Wetness of your lips reflect sunlight Gleaming on the horizon yellow Purple clouds laugh while their hems drop- The early rains of morning flood Two She lies down next to me and I see Her cloud blossom breasts Tinkle by the breeze blowing Across the sheets. Then I walk down the staircase Of her marble ribs and find a meadow Shadows extend towards east... It will rain soon. The purple mist gathers above Her cornfield lids ... Wish I were her dreams Three You enter my garden like A goddess in ancient tales, Gliding above purple lakes, Letting lilies kiss your hips I long my hand towards you And my wishes narrowly dim... -- Upon graduation from Yerevan Fine Arts and Theatrical Institute, Varoujan Froundjian directed several plays in Armenia, Cairo and Unites States, among them, Eugene Ionesco's "The Lesson", Anton Chekhov's `The Bear', George Feydeau's "A flea in Her Ear", and created dramatizations of poetry by Yeghishe Charentz, and `Lamentatons' by Krikor Naregatsi. His first recital in United States was at the General Theological Seminary, NYC where he introduced an anthology of Armenian poetry. He directed a poetic commemoration of the Armenian Genocide in the Diocese of the Armenian Church of America. At the Armenian Cultural Foundation in Arlington, MA, he presented a dramatic monologue based on the life and work of 19th century poet, mystic, Eghia Demirjibashian,. Varoujan Froundjian frequently writes for the Armenian Reporter International and his poems have been published in anthologies produced by Poetry.com. Recently, Varoujan has begun a series of experiments where he combines poetry with computer animations soon to be viewed on the Internet.
