fleeing the war
through a hole in my shoe
autumn rain

      the frost –
  my father’s empty house
waits by the road

     they did not notice
  a couple in love on the road
those large raindrops

     smoky furrow,
  neither plow nor plowman –
where are you, my father?

of home waves

fly above me

  a tiny bit of someone’s skirt
peers behind the newsstand

     over the yard
  intertwined fragrances of
the grill and cherry

    in the shallows
  boys blur the sky
and clear water

     withered leaf of an oak tree
  has fallen on grandfather’s shade
in the bottom of the yard

     a fig leaf
  fell into my lap –
Adam, where are you?
Author: Ljubisav Knežević
     a deserted nest
  the birch leaves
moved into it

     scarcely visible
  a firefly lights my path
it too is a hope

     a moribund hut –
  the smoke prolongs
its life

     on a mountain road
  somehow it hits my heart:
a wild violet

     once I arrived 
  at the cemetery entrance door -
I remembered the flowers

     bouncing toad
  still enough room for
a full moon

     the screeching of brakes-
  scattered on the asphalt
red apples

     the thunderbolt –
  murky clouds knitting
a veil of the sky

     pink flowers			
  from my neighbor's balcony				
wave to the dawn

     flower after flower
  the rainbow of ikebana
arranging its colours

     she is smiling…
  peach juice leaking
down her breasts

     with a broom
  a nun chases the autumn
around the monastery

     Tara in autumn –
  another tear flows
to distances

     i share with blackbird
  Japanese apple – everyone
pick on its own side
Author: Daković Slavka Stevović
     birds fly away,
  they leave their nests
and nostalgia
Author: Cvijeta Todorović-Milatović
  rocking the raindrops –
a dog slogs through the mud calmly

     every wave brings
  a bundle of happiness –
to the shore

  women washing laundry – 
     the warm river flows away 
the color of white linen
Author: Božidar Šćekić
     alone in front of the house –
  my shadow wiped away
by the setting moon
