Olivera Stankovska
Poetess, Macedonia

In some moments
life carries you,
from place to place,
in some moments
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 deviate yourself
from some future’s thought
quietly looking,
for a carring 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 –
A women?
