LE DEJEUNER SUR L’HERBE ~ BOJANA STOJCIC

sprawled figures basking in the impressionist sun
shooting through a break in the clouds

he said
you are forest thick brush strokes of my outdoors

a window opening on landscapes devoid of human presence
my lack of sharpness, my fine edges

he said
you are my fleeting glimpse of forgotten languages

an ephemeral moment
lived without a straight jacket

he spoke of water lilies and japanese bridges
imprisoned in an imperfect symmetry

and a dream he had of a cuckoo
pardoned by time

your heart is river shaped
he said

your winds intensely colored and homeless
howl through my trees

i was his mother’s womb
he said

throwing his elongated shadow
on my walls as

I flung off my everything to expose
my naked body to the firing squad

  1. I can only repeat what I posted on your site:
    This…this is pure brilliance and magic made real. This is not just fresh for you, it is just fucking fresh. I can’t even think of the proper adjectives to tell you!!!
    This line: you are forest thick brush strokes of my outdoors
    This is a world of its own wrapped in your voice. If there are people attached to the inspiration for this, they are the two luckiest people alive.

  3. Now this is special. Susan was spot on. From a poetic perspective this is so far your best work. It is ethereal; it makes you think and feel at the same time which rarely happens for me on wp. This will continue to grow as time passes. Beautiful, Bojana. Each & every word.

  4. This is stunning and beautiful poem which speaks love’s truth. The partial repetition (he said) works superbly, and your closing lines are masterful as, when we find love, we lay ourselves bare and to who knows what. Impressive work.
