Photography ~ Fotografija - Poem by Jankovic Zoran

Photography

She woke up and looked out the window:

With trepidation came out
clear, morning sun because
he was afraid of restless clouds.
Clouds are a symbol of infidelity,
The sun is the source of life.

The women took the phone and make a photo,
beautiful game of impossible love.
She turned and continued to dream.

One might think that
she was frightened for her fate,
but I know she's just lazy to write
and, probably, like to sleep.

Fotografija

Probudila se i pogledala je kroz prozor:

Sa strepnjom je izlazilo
bistro, jutarnje sunce
jer su ga plašili nemirni oblaci.
Oblaci su simbol nevjernosti,
a sunce je izvor života.

Uzela je telefon i slikala je
prelijepu igru nemoguće ljubavi.
Okrenula se i nastavila da sanja.

Neko bi mogao pomisliti
da se uplašila sudbine,
ali ja znam da je ona
samo lijena da piše poeziju
a, vjerovatno, voli da spava.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Photo by: Snežana Krstić Belgrade, Serbia
This poem is dedicated to the woman who knows how to write beautifully but is lazy to do it. She has an excuse because she is a painter who, when sleepy, only takes photo and continues to dream.

Ova pjesma je posvećena ženi koja zna lijepo da piše ali je lijena da to radi. Ona ima opravdanje zato jer je slikarka koja kad je pospana samo fotografiše i nastavi da sanja.

    There is always a time for everything.
    Photography must be executed in the earliest in some instances.
    When the opportunity knocks, it must be captured right away
    otherwise it will be gone in an instant.

    Slightly comical and charming about somebody taking a cell phone shot when there would be all that poetry to be written about that mesmerizing view. What our real lives are like. (Report)Reply

    beautiful game of impossible love.
    She turned and continued to dream.

    ////
    a photo
    she took
    and dreamed a love
    but impossible love that was
    because of love on virtual flash light photography!

    I like ur imagination but you must carefully observe the punctuation and grammar.
    Like " Frightened" isn't a verb. Good imagery by the way.

    Once upon a time my father telling me that I speak English as Tarzan. I did not make much progress. I corrected the error. Thank you for suggestions and comments.

    Manpreet Singh(4/28/2019 6:38:00 PM)

    Punctuation is important

    Kim Barney(4/28/2019 12:24:00 PM)

    He didn't use it as a verb. He used it as an adjective (which it is) but he should have used the verb IS in front of it:
    One might think that she is frightened...

    Unusual case, it seems,
    Photography a sort -cut
    To preserve dreams.

    A new " artistic system I suppose? but if it works for her, all the better. Artists can't be pushed or forced.

    Interesting poem, quite different.
