Summer Evening

I don’t open anymore when memories knock on my window. I prefer to imagine that sometimes from a distance empty sky longs for the glow in my eye. Under the light of my table lamp I sketch pictures and write poems about summer nights bathed in the moonlight. Every evening, in the city park by the river, young couples walk hand in hand or hugged tight. Through the air I can hear gossips between the treetops.

all along the river
moon makes atmosphere
for the first kiss

Ne otvaram više kada sećanja zakucaju na moj prozor. Radije zamšljam da ponekad, iz daleka, prazno nebo čezne za sjajem iz mog oka. Pod svetlošću stone lampe crtam skice i pišem pesme o letnjim noćima okupanim mesečinom. Svake večeri, u gradskom parku pored reke, mladi parovi šetaju držeći se za ruke ili čvrsto zagrljeni. Kroz vazduh čujem kako krošnje tračare.

svuda duž reke
mesec pravi atmosferu
za prvi poljubac

Cosiness

Sunday melody
rattling porcelain saucers
on a kitchen table

Too Soon

rooster without snooze ~
stretching first rays through the clouds
sleepy sun complains

Days In The Blackberries Field – vol. 1, finally

Well, ok, I finally did it.

I made volume 1 of the Blackberries Field and published it on Smashwords. It is a collection of poems written as Choka and Nonet. My first book! Actually, I was afraid how it will work so I haven’t published any of my three lines poems yet. Never mind, I made the first step forward.

Can I call myself a published author now???

If anyone is interested, my book is available HERE for free.
Any review is welcomed and appreciated.

Slow Motion

going for a walk
he seeks answers in puddles
after thunderstorm

odlazeći u šetnju
on traži odgovore u baricama
jutro posle oluje
