When a spike saw the hungry through her eye
It was so sad and said
I wish I were a wheat field
The forest trees heard it and said
We wish our fruits were wheat
The rain also heard it and said
I wish my rain drops become wheat
Dripping through hungry bellies
The dirt heard it too and said
I wish the whole of me became wheat
Even the stones when they heard it said
We wish our hearts become wheat
Only the human heard it and said
But he forgot to finish his sentence!
A bird built his nest
Atop a high tree
The tree called God
I beg you God
Do not send storms in my direction.
The Use of Love
All know the earth is round
No doubt it rotates
But they do not know
That the Lovers heart is what makes it round
And the strength of their love
What makes if rotate.
Gava çavên simbilek genim li birçiyan ket
Pirr xemgîn bû û got:
Xweziya ez zeviyek genim bama
Darên daristanan bihîstin
Wan jî gotin:
Xweziya berên me jî genim bana.
Baranê jî bihîst û wê jî got:
Xweziya barandina min jî biba genim
û biherikiya zikên wan birçiyan.
Guhên axê jî li wê gotinê ketin
û wê jî got: Xweziya ez tev bibama genim.
Ta keviran jî, gava bihîstin,
gotin: Xweziya dilên me jî genim bana
Tenê mirovan gotin: Xweziya…
û jibîrkirin hevoka xwe bi dawî bînin!
Çivîkekê hêlîna xwe
Li ser dareke bilind çêkir
Darê destên xwe
Li ber Xweda vegirtin û got:
Ku dêmê erdê gilover e
û bê guman jî digere.
Lê ya ku pê nizanin
Wê gilover dike
