Biography of Loreta Muskardin

Loreta Muskardin poet

I was born in Croatia and moved to the USA in 1986. My creativity is expressed in various artistic media, from painting, photography, pottery to my most loved hobby - poetry writing.

I started to write poetry as a teenager and continued to write over the years. Prior to emigrating to the USA, my poetry was written exclusively in my native Croatian language. Around 1998 I was encouraged to create my first poetry in the English language. Since then most of my work is written in the English language.

I participate annually in the poetry readings through my association with poets from Croatia based in NYC, in the events “ The Evening of Croatian Poetry”. The organization is relatively new; first two events were organized in New York City, I last participated at the one poetry reading event in San Pedro, California, where the book “Letters to my Croatia” was promoted and presented to public. I am sometimes participating in poetry readings in various clubs in New York City.

Dreams

Nonchalantly noticing
Clouds, dispersed all over
The momentarily clear,
Spring-blue sky.

Affectionately holding
Ordinary, BIC black pen
Dreamily smiling at
Nothing particular at all.

Just like thatY

Passionately building
Almost self-sufficient
Dreams.
