Within The Sediment Of The Earthquake


i must reborn in every pain

just to spite injustice called death

i still sing the song of humanity

just the spite the woes i got covered with and my broken dreams


Translated By Baki Yiğit


depremin tortusunda


her acıda yeniden doğmalıyım

ölüm denen haksızlığa inat

ben hâlâ insanlık türküsünü söylerim

bulandığım dertlere kırılan düşlerime inat


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




how do we know

what this stagnation

is pregnant with

how and when

our hopes

will be broken

will our clogged ears

and our unseeing eyes open

one day


Translated By Baki Yiğit
