Lucky Is …

Happy International Womens Day 8 March

Written: Maxima

Lucky is the one
Whose soul gets warmed
By the warmth in your eyes
Lucky is the one
Whose heart trembles
Upon the sight of you
Whose hands eagerly
Reach out to your hair
Lucky is the one
Who can embrace your silence
And listen, with all his being,
To the silent speech of your lips
Who experienced pure delight
When you entered his life,
When he tasted your kiss
And saw your gentle smile
How lucky I am,
My beloved,
How lucky I am!
I love you


Her Old Straw Hat

New book !

Written: © Maxima

In this illuminating repertoire of reflective poetry, Stjepan Maksimovic transports us to a shimmering light of emotions with poems rich with insight and powerful resonance. We travel through reality and into phantasm’s of love’s joy, disillusionment, and longing. Deeply personal, his verses are thoughtful and profound, transporting us though the virtual and real. Penned in his unique free style he encourages us to ponder more deeply life’s perplexities. An avid reader of Stefan’s work, I find this book a masterful creation by a master poet. If you are excited about delving deeper into the spiritual meaning of life and love you will find this book as captivating as I have.

Millions of playful confetti for You

Written: © Maxima

You know, my love,
As the time goes by
And the winter sets in
My only wish is
To keep warm
On the fire of your love
But you’re far away…
Actually, you are not!
You’re here with me
And millions of playful confetti
Cover us
Our lips are one
Speaking the language
Of hearts in love

You know, my love,
As the time goes by
More and more
I want my bed
To smell of you
I want birds tweeting
To wake us
Our faces bathing
In the sun
Caressed by
The warm breeze of happiness

You know, my love
I love you with all my heart
And you are in me
Deep within.

With the threads of love verses

Written: © Maxima

Looking for you
In silence
The glow in your eyes
Lights up my soul
And only then
I can weave my days
With the threads of love verses.
The purple sky
Swoops down the cliffs…
Watching it devour them
But I won’t give in
To such fate
Calling out to you
Throwing pebbles
On your window…
The glow in your eyes
Lights up my soul
I love you so much
After a while
You come down
Smiling and cheerful
You tell me your dreams
Then you kiss me
Run your fingers
Through my hair
The glow in your eyes
Lights up my soul
And only then
I can weave my days
With the threads of love verses.
I love you

Ocean without water

Written: Maxima

Can you imagine
A day without sun;
A night without moon;
A tree without leaf;
An ocean without water?
And that’s exactly
What I am without you!
I really just can’t imagine
Life without our love;
Neither, me without you!

This morning

Oh, my love
You are an angel
You are a queen
You’re in my veins
You’re every beat of my heart
You’re the beauty of life
You are my sunshine
And a dew of joy
On the flower of my life
Watching your beautiful face
This morning
Kissing it gently
As you lie asleep
I love you

With Love Maxima

Here I am,
Heading to your arms
Lead by a tender
Twinkling sparkle
Heading to the Danube,
Wide and lazy
Blue under the moonlight
So that we,
Meer mortals,
Can read those
Tender twinkling sparkles
In beautiful eyes,
Sensing a future
Mysterious, sweet, gorgeous
Hand in hand
I adore your soft touch…
The moment.
It has never been in doubt
Nor the place and time…
But, I can’t understand
How I can be your starry sky.
How come?
It puzzles me…
(Luckily you didn’t say
I was your potato salad!)
I come to you anxiously
Kissing your cheek softly
As the evening embraces
Vermilion ground and
Everything on it…
Miserable, lonely people
With troubled life
And us, my beloved,
Dreamy, happy, so much in love
I love you.
