EN - Drifting with the wonderful blooming of millions of mayflies on the waves of the Tisza river, Vita Brevis is a poem of the moment; an evocation of the fragile and fleeting dance of life.

NL - Vita Brevis is een gedicht op het ritme van miljoenen eendagsvliegen die wonderlijke bloemen vormen op de golven van de Tisza: verdichte ogenblikken, een evocatie van de kortstondige en broze dans van het leven.

FR - Au gré de l'effloraison merveilleuse de millions d'éphémères sur les flots de la rivière Tisza, Vita Brevis est un poème de l'instant, une évocation de la fragile et brève danse de la vie.
