Stone’s heart

July 10, 2013

Kroz kamen živi nosih ruke dvije
kao dva znamena.
Sad ruke ove trudne žive
u srcu tog kamena.
— Mak Dizdar

(I bore these hands like two banners
through fields of living stone.
But in the stone’s heart these tired hands
are living on alone.
Trans. Francis R. Jones

Stecci are a kind of fairy tale. Here they are in the courtyard of the museum of Roman artifacts, standing watch.
