VOICES FROM THE FIRE: Milenko Županović

Mount Sinai

The serpent

of unbelief

in the hearts

 of sinners


 of the faith

on Mount Sinai

holy commandments

in the dust

 of the past

the light

  a new dawn

in the shadow

 of the cross.



of the gods

in the arms

of destiny


of centuries


of believers

in the womb

the last


of paradise

The last Christians

Bloody tears

on the faces

of believers


from heaven

in secret chambers

of the last Christians

at dusk

of Judgment day.
