Taken From The Water by Milenko Županović

The women worked
silently in the dark
the soldiers were coming
leaving the snake
a reed boat on the river
stones were hiding the sun,
snakes grew closer,
the soldiers  searched
the whole area,
a huge cloud of dust
no lights in the desert
crying is silent
the sacred mountain
wind grew stronger
snake was already in the wood
the stone statue
at the bottom of the ocean
a sign in the desert
The wind is stronger
Eternal death
In sacred mountain.
