Vera Primorac, CR






Winter sun
nesting in a bare crown
of an old linden



The rain ceased
raindrops flow
down bare boughs



Leaves dying
under the crown
of an old linden



Tired moonlight
paused for a moment
at the linden's top



On the horizon
bare poplars waving
Call of the homeland


On the house's wall
a stormy wind breaking
bare linden shadows



Transparent night
In the poplar-tree crown
vesper of autumn



Cold in the air
Autumn lazily climbs
the bare trees



A flash of lightening
the crack of dry branches
fills the air



Dusk falls
Close to the horizon
the pines outlined


Let Us Pray: Free Verse: Be my Light
