Poems by Tatjana Debeljacki
To accept your swollen shame,
Unclear facts of non-planned defeat,
accelerating presence – dilatory past,
An essay from the times of fire and volcanoes,
Shrinking size and
To sail in on the glass ship!
With chipped memory,
Followed by music.
To pick up the fruit of inspiration.
Legend about rituals during festivity of leaving homeland!
To cry without emotional illusion and unstable memory!
To sail on by the glass ship,
To exchange divine dreams with dignity!
To intoxicate with the sides of the world which are going to occur…
To be the victim of the short century!
And not to experience a half of the pleasure.
The flowers are opening their petals craving for nostrils.
With the imposed stability
We left the small trails on the roads of life.
Maybe we could revive in some descendant!
Optimism gives strength to persisting knowledge.
Patience leads to taking offence.
The day of new faiths is rising!
Eyes made of glass craving to glow.
Evaporating scent of the urinated hourglass.
Flash of the jewelry is mocking human greed.
Handmade items are not based on simplicity
Of inner happiness, but the treasure of truth.
To water the tree of life with laughter!
By exalted content, the poem made of glass
Will cruise together with the sailor of the glass ship
To the bay on the other side.
Glass woman is sailing across the crystal sea!
