A HAIKU & Its Turkish and German Translations

impulses

one, then another
pain-filled pebbles on the road
where to go from here . . .

 

dürtüler

önce bir tane, sonra bir daha
acı-yüklü taşlar yolda
buradan nereye . . .

 

impulse

eine, dann noch eine
schmerz-gefüllte strecken
wohin von hier . . .

the camel ride in Petra Jordan

[Petra, Jordan ~ Summer of 2018]

fear of heights no more
many steep valleys later
a camel? a cinch!

when there is magic
the empirical stops being
let the mountains speak

still in disbelief
these eyes have seen such wonders
silence spoke loudly

[In memory of my father, Dr. Salih Yılmaz, who loved me loudly but held my hands quietly ~ 1926-2016]

at the crack of dawn
like you have been many times
deep slumber no more

the boat on the Nile
had a passerby aside
if only you came

Our place of accommodations

would you like my child
for us to go back in time
and sail through trials
