When I had you / Dok sam te imao

This is NOT a texture!

 

Thanks to kittykatfish for her wonderful TTV texture, from textures4layers pool. Always an inspiration!

 

When I had you

the language of birds I de-chippered

and their secrets I uncovered

plants i understood, at night

i recorded conversation of grass

so many lines i wrote

copying the handwriting of wind

by the sea, in night, in the mountain

i could listen to all the hurting ones

and bring them small joys

effortless, selfless entirely

so much goodness and generosity

i could thread into others

and I still had much too much

dreams I layered upon my eyelids joyfully

and awaited dawns with happiness of trees

when i had you

I apologize for rough translation, maybe even Babel will do a better job:) But, I wanted to share, whatever came trough, whatever didn't get lost in translation ;)

  

Dok sam te imao

jezik sam ptica razaznavao

i tajne pticije odgonetao

biljke sam razumeo, i u nocima

prepisivao razgovor trava

tolike sam pesme ispisao

prepisujuci rukopis vetra

uz more, u noci,u planini

tolike navoljnike saslusati umeo

i ciniti im male radosti

bez napora,bez sebicnosti imalo

tolike sam dobrote i plemenitosti

umeo u druge utkati

a da i prevec ostane u meni

san sam s radoscu na oci nanosio

i budjenju se kao drvece radovao

dok sam te imao

Pero Zubac pjesnik nase i vase mladosti :)
