IN THE HEART OF THE DESERT

 

On the road covered with living grains,

Upon which the air spreads its thoughts

The tictacking of a giant hourglass

From the heart

Up ‘till the limpid eye

Some

Were carrying water

From the spring,

And wore

White summer clothes.

 

U srcu pustinje

 

Na drumu

od živog zrnevlja

po kom vazduh misli

Otkucaji jednog velikog

peščanog sata

Od srca

do bistrog oka

Neki

su nosili vodu

sa izvora

I bele

letnje haljine.
