This is my latest poetry tag of a poem I wrote when I was in Greece one summer. I was inspired after observing the beautiful old abandoned houses. It is a poem about the love we need to give to a house to keep it alight. Sometimes after reading a poem, a mixture of thoughts and feelings go through me, and I wonder if I will ever write such a poem again. The moment was irreplaceable.
A prose made up of short excerpts from the poems in my book.
Watch the videos at the same time as you listen to the poem for a relaxing effect.
I’ve chosen these ‘illustrating visuals’ that remind me of home. Those of above and those below.
Impressions are welcome!
A Petaled Poet
A story of poems About Life, Love and Travel. Intelligent and imaginative perspectives are sought as obstacles unravel a mystery. An intimate life, spiced with dance as identity is peeled away with an aim of ultimately revealing a truth. The intricacies of life made pleasurable by a soft stable heart beat and a melodic dance.
The thorn will last longer than the intricate petal,
Both are beautiful,
Though the petal will give more pleasure,
Long lasting pleasure.
A mother born
The child with a thorn
By her side,
The spirit fertilized the fragile egg
And the womb was blessed.
No one can see it
But what if I could find the words to describe it
Whatever it is that I feel,
Want to feel,
And find my peace.
By Maria Grujicic
This is a dedication to my beautiful, innately philosophical, always alive in spirit and grace, Greece. In the poetry book I’ve included photos of a short life span of travel through Greece, the place I searched for my roots. The journey of travel is illustrated to go with a dance, a fertile dance that releases my grace for life.
