A New Friend

Poem By Dejan Stojanovic

Tell me something less significant,
Something about our biology, for instance,
About what you hear while sitting under the tree,
About lonely lions in the prairies;
Forget decorated generals;
Tell me about Private Ryan's,
Tell me something only you know
And make a new friend.

Comments about A New Friend

I`ll need to background this, I know just of the film, but all in all not my subject
Private Ryan the hero of second world war lost his whole family fighting against German and how he was tried to save nothing is less significant..lovely
Tell me something only you know Beautiful thought and phrase that open the door to an intimate friendship, not just a mere encounter with banal pharses of everyday said by and to everyone.
The poem has a soft appeal. seems to emanate from a very kind heart.
Deep. emotional, clear and strong poem. Very, very good.

Big Miniature

To transform a grimace into a sound
Sounds impossible, yet it is possible
To transform a vision into music,
To go outside an enslaved personality,

Dancing Of Sounds

There is a moonlight note
In the Moonlight Sonata;
There is a thunder note
In an angry sky.

Being Late

From where do simplicity and ease
In the movement of heavenly bodies derive?
It is precision.
Sun is never late to rise upon the Earth,

A Man And The Sea

Our world hides in the hospitable sea,
Murmurs tirelessly the forgotten song,
Tells the same story in a same way,
Listens to itself, indifferent to you,

Bright Moments

There can be no forced inspiration,
But there can be mergers with the world

There can be a flowing of feelings
