A Renga in Turkish (with English translation)

iyi ki kalem var
kalbimin elinde
sesli mi sesli

sevgim susardı yoksa
suni mesafelerde

anlatamazdı özüm
fani benliğimi hiç

(c) hülya n. yılmaz, 24 Ocak, 2019

(In English translation, not in the Renga form)

a blessing it is
that my heart’s pen is voiced
my love otherwise would have to remain
without a sound
in our forced distancing

it would be incapable of
speaking for my mortal self

(c) hülya n. yılmaz, January 24, 2019
