prevrnut  čamac
visoko na kopnu – 
bubnjanje kiše
 a capsized 
boat on high ground—
drumming rain
   

vatromet...                                                                
samo mjesec ostao
na nebu 

 fireworks...
only the moon left     
in the sky
   
kroz sumaglicu
nad planinskim jezerom...  
ptičja pjesma 
 through the mist,
rising off a mountain lake...   
birdsong
   

kamenčić bačen
sred gorskog jezerca... 
vrtlozi neba 

 a pebble tossed
into the mountain lake...  
whorls of sky
   

popevši se do 
dveri planinskog hrama –
disanje neba  

 climbing to
the mountain shrine’s gate –   
heaven's breath
