U predgovoru mojoj prvoj izdanoj zbirci poezije, moj tata, koji ga je napisao, završava ovako: “Nakon ovakvoga prvijenca zanima me što sada slijedi? Hoće li to ponovno biti haikui, njezini omiljeni soneti ili možda limerici? Budućnost će nam zacijelo uskoro odgovoriti.” Taj odgovor, koji je trebao nastupiti u nekoj točki u budućnosti, ovdje je – moja nova zbirka poezije jesu pjesme slobodne od forme! Zaista čudno, zar ne?
Kada je riječ o poeziji, za pisati mi je jedino na hrvatskom jeziku, jer je samo jedna od moje 1064 pjesme prevedena na Engleski jezik. Kao što sam većma govorila i o tome pisala, svoje sam prve stihove u cjelinu spojila davne 1998. godine i zaista sam sretna da neke od njih imam sačuvane. Tome je najviše pridonijelo pisanje spomenara, koji su tada bili vrlo popularni, jer sam te prvotne stihove upisivala ondje. Od tada naovamo, moja je poezija prošla pregršt staza i ispisala pjesme raznolike tematike, premda je najzapaženija i najosebujnija bila ona ljubavne tematike. Sasvim sam nenadano sredinom prosinca 2015. godine dovršila zbirku haiku poezije koja je postala, nekoliko mjeseci nakon, moja prva izdana zbirka poezije. Dala sam joj ime „Zlatno doba“.
Everything I am creating these days is connected either with my fashion ideas or the poetry. Last October I have started the project I never thought it will appear, and that is chaining the poems free from form into a new poetry book made of 366 poems (exactly, one for each day, including the 29th of February). Inspiration is such a surprising thing! An artist could never know when it will come and in what form.
The ideas are everywhere – not only that I like to think ideas, but I am peculiarly open to work on the new ones: as it is the case with the new poetry book I recently began. At first, I did not take it so seriously, but as I noticed that the same idea comes frequently and with the great desire to be expressed, I knew there is something more in it. This new poetry book is also something so new for me too – and it is not what I expected to come: being open for the new and the unpredictable makes me very surprised. From the 18th of this month onwards, already 56 new poems found their place.
As all the beginnings I had, this one does not seem to be easy also: it is so hard to start that very first sentence; but as I continued to go forward, the unknown fields became less and less demanding and my steps seemed to go… livelier. Such chapters are not something new to me, really: back in 2011 I began to write on one of the Serbian forums about my experience with poetry and parallel presenting the new artistic photographs mostly made inspired by it. The theme got a charming number of views and a good feedback but, as the time was passing by, the new opportunities appeared and the old ones got forgotten.
