Dorotea Pernjak

Transforming life into verses

Trsatska gradina 2004, Promotion of the Preludij collection; Dorotea Pernjak and Marinka Pirija after the promotion

Judging by the texts Dorotea Pernjak has written so far, writing for friends, acquaintances or passers-by seems very easy. In her words, writing is just another part of her, the invisible part, although it is constantly present. 

A pharmacist and a technologist by profession, whether working as a formulation developer, a development manager or development and registration director at JGL, she dies not renounce her favourite topics. Writing is her destiny. Her favourite subject - love. Hers or someone else's, utterly timeless. The verses best prove that, and the answer to how many more verses she wrote and when they will be published again will be provided over time, like Razotkrivena or Preludij. 

Ja sam kap istine i
kap krvi na usnama,
vuk pobjegao iz zamke
leptir iz mreže kolekcionara.
Ja sam tračak sanje u tvom oku
i slućajni dodir
lijepe neznanke u vlaku,
golub kojem let
vodi ka Gibraltaru
i jedro broda
koji svijet je oplovio.
Ja sam česma
kojoj si zabranio da presuši,
oblak koji grli se sa suncem
i jutro u čijem naručju počivaš.

razotkrivena, 2002

Pitam se
prepoznaješ li
šum vjetra u jedrima
zveckanje
i pljuskanje valova,
prepoznaješ li
trenutak
u kojem nas razdvajaju
tišina i mrak
ili nevješt si
ili možda spavaš
pa ne možeš razaznati
tako fine zvuke
od vlastita disanja.

preludij, 2004

Da sam tvoja u jutro
poput ovoga -
ispunjeno suncem,
morem, nebom i tišinom,
zibala bih te poput vala
u usamljenoj modroj vali,
pjevušila ti tiho
pjesme morskih vila.
Da sam tvoja u nedjeljno jutro
sred bijela žala
što snom slatkim sniva,
slušala bih tvoje priče
dok od ljubavi tijelo ti
umorno kraj mojega počiva.
