A Sunday Poem

leave a comment »

Vagif Samadoghlu (Vaqif Səmədoğlu) isn’t running scared, but he is running from heat. And he’s got a short poem to tell about it:

Running From Heat

I am running from heat…
But it is not raining
neither at our home,
nor in the streets,
nor in the homes of relatives and friends.
I am running from heat…
But there is not even a single dew drop
on the faces that I see.
I am running from heat…

And for the Azeri version…

İstidən Qaçıram

İstidən qaçıram…
Amma nə evimizdə,
nə küçələrdə,
nə qohum, nə dost evində
yağış yağmır.
İstidən qaçıram…
Lakin bir damcı şeh belə yoxdur
gördüyüm üzlərin
üzərində.
İstidən qaçıram…
