Mothers born Jelena Trkulja Life committed to humanism and humanity studies at the University of Novi Sad became engineers fire protection .In addition , poetry as a basic form of literary creation Stjepan Maksimovic , writes short stories , aphorisms , literary criticism . He was editor and reviewer of several books . His work was published in many magazines and newspapers , as well as joint collections of poetry.( Circle over the city , ( ZKKS ) 1984 Soulmates (Wbstilus Proceedings ,(2009 ) There are sometimes dream Wbstilus zbornik(2011 ) is the author of five books of poetry solo Slavonia as a poem (1984 ) ZKKS , Stone Eve (1985 ) Between the Shadows ( 2013 ) BookRixGmbH&Co.KG.K81675 Munich Don’t Let Tears Kiss My Face (2013) BookRix GmbH&Co.KG.K81675 Munich .The literary work of Stjepan Maksimovic Writer Jusuf Begic in the foreword to the book Slavonia as a poem (1984 ) about the creation of Stjepan Maksimovic says , ” However , when our poet besides rational attitude to go and your heart , then you can sort verses full of delights , full of some latent nostalgia . It is well expressed in song as the song of Slavonia . Yugoslav the poetry seems to be the most beautiful songs were sung about the country, and motives homeland . poets like that speaks to the ground where he was born , they bericet fruit , which is cultivated and maternal love , which is imbued . All poets Slavonia , they said a lot about this area of our country . Stjepan Maksimovic And our poet speaks with enthusiasm about his homeland, even if it is creating an anthology of poems about slavonia I am confident that both songs are given here to go to that collection . Analyzing the poetry of the poet Stjepana Maksimovica in his preface to the book ” Stone Evening”(1985 ) Pero Joka says” … We come to the conclusion that his poetic narration syntactically simple and impressive . String of poetic imagination , tells us about the multidimensionality of poetic world where the correlation relation of fiction and reality , the configuration of the songs completely justifies its role in this system, the complexity of the structural element , which form a certain poetic image … love poetry or poetry about love , full of some latent power . poet uses the form of abiding by the laws of the song .. it must vary the mood to make it somehow had some dramatic range , each kojipotreban artist , poet not only to evoke a particular moment because love contains exactly those elements and requires no explanation , but we are asking participants , people with a big heart and good spirit . What kind of poetic quality it is mostly the numerous comments of satisfied readers who daily follow his work include several” This is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever read.” “Such beautiful, romantic verses! This poem sings a wonderful love song for the whole world from flowers to mermaids to enjoy. Delightful!” Poetry Stjepan Maksimovic was translated into English , French and Spanish.

Very engaging. I felt I was participating in the story. For me that is a sign of a good story …


This Is Not The Place 
So romantic and intense, the emotion you convey in your words of love….very beautiful. She is a very blessed woman that has your heart and loyalty…

The Street Was Painted In Blue   

Reading your poem I can immediately see, feel and smell – much the same as I can hear the voices mentioned in the dream … Quite remarkable that your words and your description – which seems to be so simple (meant positively!) is generating such “visions” and is producing paintings and emotions so powerfully. Wonderful!
Sending you my best wishes!

Your poetry is bringing beauty, sensitivity and honesty into this world…Stefan, you’re an amazing writer and a wonderful giving person. And a true magician of words…creating a gate to a world of inspiration, generosity and love. I feel blessed to open the gate and to embrace my heart in the warmth of your poems.
Thank you for following my blog, i’m honored! Knowing that you’re reading, knowing that you like my humble words…is all i need to write with all my heart and soul. I’ll return here…to this beautiful place that fascinated the eyes of my soul.”

Waking up with your lover beside…

    hello Maxima,
    I liked reading your poems indeed.

    Just a suggestion – After 4 lines, give one line extra space.
    Keep the poem in multiple of 4 lines. i.e. 4 lines, 8 lines, 12 lines, 16 lines etc.
    Beyond 4 lines, our eyes needs to zoom in and set focus to read content.
    regards –

    Hi there, my name is Alyssa. We’ve been following each other on WordPress for a while now, and I was wondering if you’d be interested in doing some kind of book swap for promo.

    I recently made the move into self-publishing, and I know that you’re a writer as well, and if you’re interested, I thought we could swap copies. I’d read a book of yours and write a blog post promoting it in the following week, while you read a book of mine and (if you enjoy it of course) promote it on your own blog. I think it’d be a great way for both of us to reach new audiences, and my story, The Motel Room, is a nice one session read at 27 pages.

    Feel free to say no, and good luck with all your writing endeavors! =)

    Hi Maxima…. I see you’ve been around for a serious visit on my Not In India blog and thank you for the repost and for all the wonderful likes. I always enjoy your posts, but have honestly taken a “RETREAT” from blogging the past couple of months. Just now posted a couple of simple photos, so really appreciated your reminding me that there are others out there noticing my posts once in awhile. Perhaps it is time to get back to my postings.
    Thanks for the reminder
    much love light and JOY
