Guest of the Month

 

August 2003 - Kuniharu Shimizu, Japan

 

 

his life, and then
her life gone ...
distant fireworks

prodje njegov život,
sad i njen ...
vatromet u daljini

 

funeral bouquet --
her monochrome photo
amid pink and purple

pogrebni buket -
njena crno-bela slika
usred purpura

 

summer end-
her keepsakes, her memories
and her ashes

kraj leta -
njene uspomene,
sećanja i pepeo

 

Oolong tea -
in such a small cup
so much warmth

Oolong čaj -
u tako maloj šolji
toliko topline

 

morning cool . . .
silhouettes of the faithful
murmuring chants

studeno jutro -
siluete vernika
u rumoru molitve

 

holidays over -
dry roses
on the secretary's desk

praznik je prošao -
na stolu sekretarice
svenule ruže

 

sunflowers wither
leaving seeds
embedded with hope

suncokret vene
ostavljajući semenke
ispunjene nadom

 

in the garden -
every stake topped
with a dragonfly

u bašti -
svaki stub okićen
vilinskim konjicom

 

autumn morning -
pine needles
round with rain drops

jesenje jutro -
kap kiše oko svake
borove iglice


September night
dust and smoke
hide so many stars

septembarska noć
dim i prašina skrili
obilje zvezda

 

funeral over -
traces of tears wiped
from my spectacles

posle sahrane -
tragovi suza izbrisani
sa naočara

 

moonless night-
crickets sing
for a street light

noć bez meseca -
pesma cvrčaka
uličnim svetiljkama
