Silent Fruits

Published May 13, 2014 by Malena

The Gift of Appreciation

This is a poem dedicated to inspiration that bloomed from a party, of all places. I haven’t written for a while. Did I drift to laziness? Hibernation? Down on confidence? A mix of these and more? The theme for the night was mirror white and we all dressed in white. Silent fruits relates to the quiet, unnoticed seemingly little things we do for people that are actually quite fruitful. Instead of ‘flowers’ I used fruit, of which stem from flowers. I won’t give too much more away but the fact that love is quiet, unobtrusive and unseen until it touches us unexpectedly. Impressions welcome and a gift.

Silent Fruits

Night rose to meet its bloom

All who played with it subtly died

But you were the exception

White in the garden

Brightening as night rose

You danced among the green

Highlighting the unseen

An elevated smile elected mine

As humble eyes slid to a close

Softly penetrating me to a close

Under the light of the moon

Synchronizing all as night rose

My Big Love

Published April 11, 2013 by Malena

Sydney, Australia

The weather permits me to dance
Sensations build through passing years
Rain grows and returns to the sky
Wind blows in sudden reply
I hide to avoid the ache in the sea
It bleeds as I dance
To rhythms of chance
I turned and saw
Broken glass was left in the sea
Nature’s miracle changed them to
clear, smooth stones
The bits healed like meditative clones
An anonymous dancer
And a subconscious heart
Led a silent breath to ask
Does he look handsome
When I dance?

By Maria Grujicic
Dedicated to my big love.

This was a poem that I started to write and edit before I went on holiday, and continued editing in Sydney. I romanced and tried to take my breath away from myself as I envisioned what the surroundings were telling me and expressed my feelings for them. My big love? My new-found love for Sydney, the air that I felt while I was there, and my amazing handsome husband who was there with me! I wonder if you can sense these emotions and impressions in the poem, and if you can relate to it in some way too.

Sydney Harbour Walk

Time was free
As her light was seen
by the dark side of the moon
An end was a must
For a beginning to ponder
Play was all that she had
Following her heart
To where a place was set
She sang to the loss of his song
Her voice ran
A story was told
With every turning page
He kissed her hand
Her portrait froze
With just enough colour
She rose
To a flourishing dream
She wanted him
To remember her
with her perfume on
Wonder, a commodity
No name and a blank slate
Love filled the curves of his face
Time was short
He was far
Abundant obstacles for wandering eyes
Lovers entered the centre
Of life’s disguise
And desire was what remained

By Maria Grujicic
Dedicated to my husband’s beautiful eyes

This is a poem I started to write before I left on my holiday, and continue editing in Melbourne. I saw a busker who was singing by the side of the river in Melbourne. I was sitting at a café across from him with my husband, when I saw at a café across from where we were sitting a bird swoop down and try to eat a girl’s salad! She was eating on her own and I guess she might have felt down about that, but in the public eye put on a brave face. The sun was shining and everyone in high spirits, she could only move on. She faced the busker as he sang and clapped and cheered him on, almost like she was pushing and cheering her own spirits. I’ve never seen a busker sing so well, so heart-felt, so strongly as that day. He gave it his best, and after she had her meal, she left and there was an empty space. His song seemed to fade. He stopped singing after a short while. I wonder if you can find this part in my poem? I dedicated this to my husband because without him, I wouldn’t be writing poetry.


Ohne Liebe, Ohne Tanz, A Love Poem

A Love Poem

I feel crazy and lost without you
I clean my essentials to find you
They breathe fire and hide from the rain
Priceless commodities
Once had
Agony rules my mind
Oh my diminished heart
It failed me once more
How arrogant to think the sensation would last
Without you, what is the feeling of love
But a myth of consolation
For my diminished heart
What is life, without you
But a mirrored constructiveness of a sense
Once had
Now relieved by the loss of a thought
And reality
That I am now without the person my soul
Always wanted to be

Tears For A Rainy Day

just a dream!

I want to shout to the world
I exist
But you will only know me after I die
But it won’t be too late
The words will flourish in your mind
Don’t be sad
Rejoice in the gifts you have
For you too, one day will rejoice
in the anonymous glory
But the truth is that there’s an ache in your heart
It might even rule your soul
But be strong
for this is a truth
that will help you carry on
Don’t cry
for the tears might run away
Keep them inside and save them for a rainy day

The Guilt Of Loving You

Published January 4, 2013 by Malena

Let’s talk about nothing in particular
I want to see how your mouth moves
I feel guilty loving you

My gaze drifts to a different place
In case we might be seen
I hide you in the enclosure of my life
A place where I can be free

Your Life

Published December 29, 2012 by Malena

A glass of water
Lay beside my bed
Untouched for a time
I replaced the glass
To keep your image
Fresh in my mind
To feel close to you
It enticed a comfort of thought
Of a thirst
I prayed to return again and again
And relinquish the passing of time
But sleep was the only cure for my pain
The days recycled the tears in my eyes
As hope evaporated into the skies
Cleansing the surrounding air that I breathe,
Bringing your life back to me.
