Buttlerfly

By Çınar Ekiz

  

en gerçek düş   the only true dream

kelebeğin düşüdür;                               is the butterfly’s;

uyanmadan ölür.                                         before awaking, it dies.

gelip gökkuşağını al                                   come and take the rainbow

güneş yağmurla                                           when the sun is

sevişirken.                                                      making love to the rain.

 

Endülüs’te bir akşamdır                          it is an evening in Andalus

ve doğudan                                                    and your hair

batar saçların.                                              from the east goes down.
