YOU ARE A WOMAN
 
In some moments,
life
carries you,
from place to place,
in some moments,
life
leaves marks
all over you body,
and you with your pupils
which tasted futility,
flirt with the stars
to open the gate of  light,
 before the dawn
you wash yourself with love and hope,
you breathe  into other souls
for a peaceful future,
incidentally you separate yourself
from some morning’s thought,
you quietly rippling in someone’s soul,
 
and when I see you
so proud and lovely,
looking like a queen
off all kingdoms
I wonder:
 
Are you sprouted of a lotus?
Are you separated  from a rock?
Or maybe,
you are an elongated root,
 
or the Lord blessed you
when named  you –
а womаn?
 

ЖЕНА СИ

Во миговите
животот
те прпелка,
во миговите
остава жигови
по твоето тело,
а  ти со зениците
што ја вкусиле залуденоста,
им се додворуваш на ѕвездите
за да ја отворат портата на светлината,
пред мугрите
се премиваш
со љубовта и надежта
и дишеш во туѓите тела –
за мирна им иднина,

патем,
се откорнуваш од нечија утринска мисла,
тивко се брануваш во нечија душа
и кога те гледам
така горда и мила,
чинам кралица си на сите кралства,
па се прашувам:

дали потомока си на фениксот
ил изникна од лотос,
се одвои ли од карпа,
или можеби си
изданка од жилав корен

или  Господ те благослови,
кога те нарече – жена.
