Father's House


My father's house was left to me as a legacy,

Where I live with my family, where is the eternal garden.

Where my childhood begins

Where I turned fifty.


Father's house saves from bad weather,

The father's house saves from adversity.

The boundaries of the house are the boundaries of happiness,

Above them is the sun, a month all year round.


Father's yard - you are my state border,

Father's yard is my lifeline.

You are sovereignty, how not to be proud,

You are my adviser, you are my true friend.


My friends, my relatives are all trees,

My father's house keeps my quiet sleep.

I spend time in my father's house,

Will I find peace in my father's house?


In my father's house, where my mother went,

In the father's house, where the father walked.

I live, I love, I laugh, sometimes I suffer,

My little boy is growing up in my father's house.


After all, at home the walls help people, -

You are my fortress from someone else's rumor.

When slander bothers me,

You are a place where there is a smell, a taste of halva.


Thank you for your native roof

For land, air, the memory of all relatives.

Because you gave me a niche from the heart,

For an hour of inspiration - bright, golden.


House With Access To The Market


Born at the Eastern Bazaar.

There is my dear homeland.

Where I wake up with the azan,

And where my beloved lives with me.


Where it is crowded from early morning,

A house with sea access? To the market!

At the why threshold - children,

Where from dawn to dawn only young, old.


At dawn I pour into that stream,

In which life boils, flows in full.

When I see people, I thank

Almighty for the world, I drink bliss.


Sacred Side


What is the West to me, what is the East to me?

Not light yet: only a tight circle!

Perhaps a sip is waiting for spring?

After all, there is a North, there is even a South!


What is the West to me, what is the East to me?

After all, my life is a solid pledge!

Mohammed is a holy prophet to me,

My Qibla is my home, threshold!




So I want to go to visit my mother,

Drink tea with her and over a dastarkhan.

I would like to see my father in the early morning,

Stay overnight in that desired house...


What a pity, I have nowhere to go for the holiday -

My relatives are long gone, after all, in the world.

I sit at home from longing and cry,

I'm looking for them from light to dawn.


About Homesickness


Do you want to drop the sky even to the ground,

But do not deprive people of their homeland.

Do not take away the streets - the memory of childhood -

Turn over all the white light.


Their ancestors went there - dads, moms,

Their youth walked there in the rain.

After all, there are mosques, their churches and temples,

Oh, do not deprive people of their homeland.


Why someone else's luxury, skyscrapers,

Neon lights, a series of cars...

When friends, neighbors are waiting for them somewhere,

On the world map is the place of their soul?!


Though you appear as wild beasts, -

Don't make people leave!

To choose, you imagine your homeland, -

Don't make me yearn for her!


This is blasphemy!




The sky plays its white tunes,

Naked birches in a dream.

A young man wanders,

His hands are covered with birches.


He goes without finding, he searches,

This guy is full of birch trees.

He goes without being found - he dreams,

He dreams - in a dream of birch trees.


He dreams: in a dream of a boy,

His hands are full of apricots.

The sky plays its white tunes,

Naked cherry blossoms.


My Images


My thoughts are drowning in the rain

Thinking about the sun.

He sometimes flew to the valley,

He comes back from his motherland to talk.


My thoughts are drowning in the rain

Another flight to my home.

Parents hug and kiss,

Reach out to me.


I will stay in the rain

I have passion for my thoughts.


On The Train


Missing your blue-blue gardens again,

I'm going back to your warm embrace, Osh.

My mother is walking along the road and waiting.

My passion is coming, if the bird flies away.


I will not leave the sidewalk,

The trees are climbing fast behind me...

How much I yearn for my mother,

Such a cruel train.
