ON LANDSCAPES OF HOPE

If I am a tear
Blue in your eye

And a thought
By which
You stretch wings
To butterflies of joy

Then
I could be also
Your travelling companion

Through high and low tides
On the sea of life

If you are
Chlorophyllous Easter
On the landscapes of hope

Which
By energy
Of refined colours

In the humus
Of monotonous
Everyday life

Revives brightness

Then
Me too
Coud be

Singing string
On your lyra

When
Hours sink
In wordlessness

And
Balming lullaby
To the echo
Of your
Inquietude

When
The open sea
Of still undreamed
Dawns

Ruffles
In a storm

 

NA PEJZAŽIMA NADE

Ako suza sam
Što ti se u oku plavi

I misao
Kojom
Leptirima radosti
Širiš krila

Onda
Mogu biti
I tvoj saputnik

Kroz oseke i plime
Na moru života

Ako
Hlorofilni Uskrs si
Na pejzažima nade

Koji
Energijom
Oplemenjenih boja

U humusu
Jednoličnog
Svakodnevlja

Vedrinu oživljava

Onda
I ja
Mogu biti

Raspevana struna
Na tvojoj liri

Kad
U bezrečje
Tonu sati

I
Melemna uspavanka
Ehu
Tvojih nemira

Kad se
Pučina
Još neodsanjanih
Svitanja

Olujno
Uzburka
