Poems by Tarana Turan Rahimli

 

This love is still three –month old baby

This love is still three –month old baby
Its milky lips never tasted bitterness.
This world is like an angel in its eyes,
Still no devil slept on its way.

It is unaware of coming autumn or winter,
Still its smile is a bit fearful.
Its wishes and hopes didn’t touch stones,
Its heart is as touchy as a glass.

Still its hopes didn’t become empty,
Its wishes are sleeping in a golden cradle.
At nights angels sing a cradle song to it,
Each morning its dream is interpreted for good.

This love is still three –month old baby
It is setting a way towards longing.
Still it hasn’t reached to its destination
Hey, great Creator, reach out your hand.

 

I want a lifetime

I want a love,
Like the love of the children
To the children
And to the birds.

I want to hear a pleasant word,
Like the whisper of south-west wind
To the petals of the flowers.

I want a lifetime
Like the lifetime of a good poem.
I want a death
Like the death of a poet.
