New Forests Call

My leaves fall distant from her tree and flee along the ground Stripping bare a summer tryst old promises unbound Set to ride the Autumn wind like all those times before New forests call, as Spring awaits —my love to loan once more (V...

OČETU

Ne razumem zakaj si me vse dni imenoval pankrt Saj sem vendar imela kodre kot ti in pod ustnico jamico kot ti Ne razumem zakaj si me usekal po prstih ko so umirali od koprnenja da bi zašli med tvoje kodre ki so takšni kot moji Ne razumem zakaj si ...

MAMA

Zakaj me nisi nikoli vzela v dlani Želela sem biti piščanček v tvojih rokah Zakaj me nisi nikoli pogladila po laseh ali povlekla zanje Da bi vedela da sem živa in malo ob tebi

L'INVERNO CALDO ( Zima je topla)

Sei venuto in pieno inverno. Quando fuori mulinava la neve avevi occhi caldi. Quando sotto il cielo gelato piangevano gli uccelli assiderati i tuoi occhi di contrabbando invadevano le mie albe. Fino allora non sapevo che l'inverno potesse assere...

KOT PRVIČ

Vedno znova te prvič zagledam In potem se vso noč pogovarjava kako sva se prvič zagledala in se ustrašiva da nisva odseva odbliska Se vprašava ali si ti ali si ti In ko končno prepričana dobro vidiva se gledava kot da sva se prvič zagledala in se...

SLOVO

Gledala sem tvoj hrbet ko si se vzpenjal na hrib Bil bi oltar za moje sušne molitve In bil bi deblo ki bi ga roke trepetaje za vselej ovile Bil bi hiša za moje razpadle dni ki so bili in še bodo ko bo tvoj hrbet zatonil kot svetleče sonce in bo p...

Beyond

I purposely avoid all words to impress No ‘genre’ or ‘penchant’ ‘couture’ or ‘egress’ The meaning embodies what each letter foretells To be spoken forever —beyond heaven or hell (Villanova Pennsylvania: January, 2019)

A New Path

What will be your legacy, can it forever speak the truth Do the words describe your finest hours, were your labors nobly used Will your memory linger and grow in strength as it prepossesses time Can it wrap its love around borders quelled...

A Robin Will Sing

Those at my behest… know that limits persuade and words orphaned alone into emptiness hide with the snow passing on a new robin will sing each breath left forgotten until spoken aloud as memories fall from grace —in the silence...

Prošnja

Prosim te govoriti belo drevo Lahko govoriš v delih in jaz bom molčala Povej mi kaj si slišalo ponoči ko je tema tarnala zaradi nemoči zvezd Kakšen je tihi glas zvezdnih pik na nepremičnem nebu In zakaj povej mi belo snežno drevo in temno nebo za...

FEELING

I've climbed the tree to rich the light of life It's dark under my skin and cold in blood and bones The warm breath and smile all have gone with you I still remember your careless back and shoulders which were mine You left me in the middle of no...

HAIKU 3

I feel wet by the dead butterfly and the stones ( mokro mi je ob mrtvem metulju in kamnih )

HAIKU 2

a shaft of light lightens the silence of a newborn morning ( snop svetlobe osvetli tišino rojenega jutra)
