DREAMS OF NIGHT

Let all prohibitions be abolished.
We lost the time anyway
At the place where the dreams of night begin.

Let one leaf of the curtain open
Let day light leak from between.

The inert bodies lying inside,
Forbid the light,
It is naked in the garden anyway.

WITNESS COULD NOT BE FOUND

And the doors are opened part way,
Imprisoned to night, the two bodies
Not to wake the day
Slipped inside silently
Thousands of touch
That much of kiss
Took place of the words,
Not any witness could be found
Among the night and the day…

FEATHER PILLOW

On the night going on with chuckles
With a light breeze
He has been feeling sleepy.

He lied, embracing
Was it the feather pillow which he embraced.
In his sound sleep
He thought he was holding
The woman’s left breast.
What did he embrace for years.

THE POETIC EXPOSITION OF THE CONTENT OF A HIDDEN PHOTOGRAPH

Quiet and breathless,
We got out dripping with sweat from
The night smelling four-o’clock.
I “centimetered” your mind with rulers
How darkness reached light
Was a film band which I could not understand.
You were as a dry leaf, alone
And imprisoned to yourself, being hurled in the wind,
Breathless but hot as it can be.
Mine was the longing for the yellow years,
Although yours was your desire of a night.
Now, you are so in the photograph, immortal
Actually, you are mine now.

 

WHAT WAS THE WOMAN FROM FETHIYE LOOKING FOR?

Unknown boat on the dead sea
A woman on the boat
She is a Fethiye native obviously
The woman’s eyes are uncovered
As if she was looking for something
Occurred and ended the storm.

Some youths dived to the bottom
They found the man and got him out
His eyes uncovered
Who was he, where was he from
It was never identified.
