When You Read Her Poems

Written by: Vesna Kovrlija

You read her poems 
And imagine women chattering 
Around the old wooden table 
Changing old men`s stories 
By their ancient, deep knowledge 
And their experience 
You read her poems 
And discover the secret magic 
Of ordinary things-
Of the kitchen cupboard 
Of the taste of coffee 
On a sunny afternoon 
You read her poems 
And become more 
Intimate with nature 
You read her poems 
And find the presence 
Of loving and forgiving God
