About the book:
“This is my song, my judgement words summarised out of solitude in an incommensurable sum whose final result is a song. This is my melody of birth, imaginary voice of ritual poetic mystery; I am trying to have the language of my song keep golden, precious treasury abundance of the Serbian language. Poetry is my obsession, as well. Every sound of it, the echo of it, the syllable of it, its appeal to origins and response of the inexpressible is in the direction of my own request for writing out an absolute song. The poetry is my way of birth anew and my being through words, the way of take-off of auriferous words which, like honeycomb, make – construct a haven for all the losses and defeats, for all the troubles and pains”.
“A hankering for meaning, a hankering for revelatory landscapes of both earthly and heavenly worlds, for revival of timeless wonders – that is my voice out of solitude, my voice through solitude, my voice that spreads through the darkness and the light, through the cloud, little leaf, sand, frost and ink, … my voice through time which calls out for you”.
