Poetry from Azemina Krehic

Young Central Asian woman with long dark brown hair, brown eyes, lipstick, a gray jacket and low necked green blouse, with a lake and buildings and trees behind her.

Mulberry trees should not be planted near the house, 
Not even a walnut tree. 

Their veins are demonic 
And if they scatter, the house will ensure to stay deserted... 

In the morning, the mulberry tree was wounded. 

Shadow lay dead beneath him for hundreds of lost birds. 

Only goats ate his flickering tops, 
Which are until yesterday 
It could only be reached with the eyes...

One thought on “Poetry from Azemina Krehic

  1. When I was little I loved mulberry trees because I raised silkworms that fed on their leaves; Then they became chrysalises and flew like poems, dissolving my dreams in the middle of the night. I like your Poem, but I know that birds don’t like mulberry trees.
