Jasminka Nadaskic Djordjevic

first day of autumn -  
wind makes a cold cage  
around the house  
  dormant cat -
  November frost drives away
St. Thunderer Elias' day - sparrows from the fence
stars elope  
before the rain  
  instead of leaves
  plastic bags on the branches -
between lightning the wind day after day
and thunder - one moment  
without a breath
