The Serbian word “Merak” is defined as a feeling of bliss and the sense of oneness with the universe that comes from the simplest of pleasures. It is the pursuit of small, daily pleasures that all add up to a great sense of happiness and fulfillment.
i dream of flying unencumbered, free
yet suffer from a phobia of heights
with my feet, deeply rooted like a tree
