Many sighs in tears

Takes the time

I don´t want the wind

Disperse your breath

Neither the verses

That ignite my kisses

Making of your body

The green ink

Of my whole poetry!

With the moon

Reflected on your back

So smooth

So pure

So mine

Just take me

In your silences

Today I will keep

All my dreams


My soul will take

Your memories

Just waiting

For the moment

To embrace you




Translated by: Alaric Gutiérrez


There, where the wind fades away

The sky waves its own branches

Retouching icy mornings

In the shades

Blackbirds and pigeons flapping

And disturbing the sky

I aimlessly wander through

Every corner evokes

Spiral lines of perpetually

Ever written sonnets

Unveiled brides

Blur the color lines

Upon vacant altars

I become chrysalis

Under the chaos of progress

I extend my hands

And find only emptiness

Where do these streets lead me to

I try to jump over my shadow

Gradually move

From green to yellow

Exorbitant looks

Lacking everything

And nothing at all

In the swinging mist

Every step reflected upon

Its own reflection

When the twilight expands

I force myself to take shortcuts

That lead me nowhere

Broken hearts

Moon’s usurped glow

Yielding ghosts

To the impregnable shine

Of window cars

Stillness moves

Static seconds

Silence declines

I emigrate with no belongings

Brittle and gloomy spectrum

De-kernelling good-byes

My mind is on hold

Stars cry about

Humidity’s shortage

And eclectic rains

My voice drowns

Blink away

The ethereal fire of my eyes

I release myself from prejudice

I release myself

From body and soul

As nocturnal sun

Amidst the desert



Translated by: Alaric Gutiérrez


Each sparkle has a distant and severe air

Dusty breeze undoing

Selfless prejudices

Diaphanous sky

Of far away shores

Untellable words

Sweet craving that leads

And mitigates nostalgia

Drunkenness of the moment

Impossible fight

Bold and incandescent soul

Every sound is a wonderful caress

Momentum, track and halo of a transient light

Each sparkle has a distant and severe air

I understand the instant is non-existing matter

Burns like a wound inscribed within our consciousness

Affliction goes away

Full delight of interrogations and absences

Depths and appearances

Defining the earthly paradise hell

Of my own communion

Each sparkle has a distant and severe air

I learn to live

In the branches of a secret dream

Of a fiery shade

In the shortened line

Of abysmal dementia

Choleric air of ephemeral tears

Shake up my roots

Lewd whisper

Born from the body

Proclaiming the cavity

Of long gone solitudes



Translated by:  Alaric Gutiérrez

A gust of wind and rumors

Hue harmonic perfumes

Vetiver, coriander, kahve and saffron

Crumbling the twilight dust

Silence singing words

Bursting up

Depths of the sky

My body invokes you

Under the Ankara fresh rain

Fertile crescent

The spell of my lips

Liquid light

Of shooting stars

Horizontal waves

Moistens my edges

In the steppe plains

Of your gardens

Even the moon is singing

Although no one notices it

Dressed up in rainfalls

And kissing roots

Sound waterfalls

Polishing stones

Upon your rivers’ wings

Holding hands

Piercing idyllic forests

Dates and prunes

Are seeded wild

Like impregnated

Fire water drops

On the green breeze

Of your gaze

Undamaged yearnings


The absence or presence

Of your breath

Fragrant essence

Evokes the moss dance

In Turkish oak timbers

Chimerical magma

Rises and falls

The ottoman honeysuckle

Of your luminous pores

Opened up

To the furtive wrap

Of my nights
