Aquarius/Living out of Poem

Time: 1 minute


A of longing and wish by Tatjana.

Dedicated to Dragoljub Djuričić

Kilometers gained nothing – you are here.

Before I go to thirty times I say your name – you are here.

You fall asleep quietly – you are here.

Through deserts of sound, reason – you are here,

Through unreal reality – you are here,

Through the music of drums – you are here.

I know that you know that – here it’s

Always you.

out of Poem

An inward looking poem by Tatjana.

While it’s raining, and when there is ,

And while dreaming the green knight,

When the fear is deep suspicion,

Everybody puts own and little life

Into one poem.

Though, were I to live mine as one in the poem,

But I didn’t.
