Gleaming Fairy

You are like the wild mountain river

Prone to flash floods

You yearn for the plains

That will calm

And settle you into your bed

In the plains you get jaded

For you have steep slopes in your veins

And highland horizons

Your temper is fairylike

You bestow charms upon the loved

And curse the hated with worst spells

You defend yourself like a wild boar

And attack like a lone wolf

Waiting hidden in the fourth dimension

Of the dark Bosnian forests

The essence of this poem is

That I love you the same

Both as you are and as you aren’t

And I fear to meet you

Like I fear the most colourful mushrooms

You are mine harsh alternate

A lone lighthouse in unseen vistas

That observes with longing

Its reflection on the other side of the abyss...

VILA SVJETLICA

Ti si kao divlja rijeka

sklona poplavama

Čezneš za ravnicom

Koja će te umiriti

Vratiti u korito

U ravnici se uznemiriš

Jer su ti strme obale u venama

A obzori u visokim brdima

Tvoja narav je vilena

voljene obdaruješ čarima

a omrzle najgorim kletvama

Braniš se kao divlja svinja

A napadaš poput vuka

Pritajenog u četvrtoj dimenziji

Mračnih bosanskih šuma

Poenta ove pjesme je u tome

Da ja tebe volim i kakva jesi

I kakva nisi taman toliko

Da se plašim susresti te

Kao najljepše gljive ludare

Ti si moja opora zamjenica

Usamljeni svjetionik u bezpregledu

Koji s čežnjom gleada

svoj odraz na drugoj strani tjesnaca…
