harles Simic in America
and Ranko Damjanovic in Serbia
write poetry of awareness and awakening
thoughtful living

there is nothing in this world
that is not both good and bad
ignoring that
to think only positively
you may not live long enough
to enjoy life

benefit from the sun
with all the shadows it creates
you may not have time for
the baby’s first tooth
a glass of red wine
a chat with your neighbor
watering his garden while you are doing yours
no time to swim naked in the summer rain
waiting for the smile from above immediately after.
