The Offended Reflection


your insatiable face

spontaneously peels

when it

embraced by pain

wrapped in offense


when your image is reflected

in the mirror


Translated By Baki Yiğit


A Magic


My solitude is a slight pain

Which ooze out the burning window-frames

A heart can hear the other one

Happiness came and passed by.

Can an exhausted fire become active

Just like rubbed feelings.

Love is a magic

Let it bring up the universe

Let your love grow up freely…


How many springs conceive

Flowers of spring

How many crimson sunsets

Golden yellow new moons left in the cache

Love is a magic

Let it bring up the universe freely

Before mountain flowers smile upon me.



Translated By Baki Yiğit


The Burry Past


i looked back time after time

on that deep burial

the silent traces

of the burry past

having been a cat's paw

of the crestfallen times

two back and one front

    as if knitting thessalonian style   

starting a new row

crushed and scratched

between the devil and the deep sea

a voice from the buried desires

good morning




tell the icebergs that

here is the brazenfaced darkness

where is that love-kindling brightness

to turn the dreams


Translated By Baki Yiğit
